Who knows? I know with the AFTV2 this is not the case after reading in these forums but as you can see some users are still doing or asking about doing this process.

because on phones typically when you "wipe" its similar to a factory data reset so youre essentially installing on a clean system vs. over top a modified system which can cause issues..
the same thing will happen with a phone (brick) if you wipe system without installing one after in recovery.. however, if you still have recovery and a rom on storage you can reflash rom and all is good.
Now if you were to have a locked BL and use FF like me, youd need to odin a full stock tar (Sammy devices) to get it to boot which is essentially similar to the unbrick image here..
fact is, when doing wipes always be sure you know what your wiping before doing so to avoid the trouble.
