Actually the original cross-hatch should still be somewhat visible in the cylinder, unless a major failure occured. These are actually small valleys in the surface that retain lube oil during operation. The ball hone is also called a glaze breaker. It creates small peaks in the surface to help seat the rings to the cylinder. If the rings don't properly seat you won't get proper sealing and as a result lower compression and firing pressure due to blow-by....and have to hone it to add the cross hatching which retains oil for lubrication.
