If you a not sure if the ROM you use is same version of your android device example is you have cherry mobile spin 3G model, This unit have 3 version V1, V2, V3, Each Version is similar firmware but different loader and boot, That's why if you FULL flash ROM V1 to V3 gadgets may result working but Blue screen because it different on loader. This option is great to make custom Rom, It can load only recovery, system, bootimage only is safe way flash without erase another part.

Added knowledge 3: Download Button

Download option result. There are tree option before download start in selection may affect result to device here are below..
1. Format + Download
2. Download Only
3  Firmware upgrade

The Format + download if you select is clearing all nand/eemc partition also such as security,nvram,calibration data. meaning if you flash program the device in this condition the IMEI and baseband erase, make it sure you have backup this file to restore, The other way to fix if you dont backup is to using PAID Tools like sigma box ! be care full to select this option

Download only is to insert ROM file without clearing calibration security data, its clear only userdata.
Its safeway option.

Firmware Upgrade is to insert ROM file which is per partition erase, its clearing also userdata or change address partition by preloader address.

Added Knowledge 5 : Resetting user data and catch

As far i experienced, if the device have a password lock, Pin lock, Frp Lock, or you want to remove or erase these lock or @user data in Android device using SP Flash Tool, Yes it can be!.
How to remove is to Load the ROM to the tools and uncheck all the image ROM file except "userdata.img".
This setup in Sp flash tool is can flash only the partition of have "check".
If you check only "userdata.img" it can flash only the partition part ROM to device and the Pin lock, Pattern lock, also internal storage will be clean. The system and security area of phone not be touch.

Before Writing ROM to your device
NOTE: Extract the downloaded compressed file and provide given password if asked, Please read first the How to safe flash/Reprogram your device
