    It's perfectly safe to do a factory reset.

    Settings/accounts and sync to intergrate your social networking feeds.

    Everything that is not on the sd card, it will become just like when you took it out of the box for the first time.
    You can format the card also along with it, there is an option for that too.

    Take out the battery, put it back in after a few seconds [its just to stop the bootloop and have the phone turned off]
    Now restart the phone in recovery mode by pressing and holding Home + Power button, keep it pressed until you see the yellow recovery menu.
    Click on wipe cache partition and factory/data reset and then reboot system.
    Use the volume keys to navigate and home key to select.

    Hope this solves the problem, otherwise you will have to flash the entire firmware again.

    No pin, just follow the instructions. Just click the option, then it'll ask a confirmation, press yes. It might give an option to include sd card as well, but you probably want to exclude it from getting erased, so that option is NO.
