I've HTC dev bootloader unlocked desire hd with custom recovery. I've tried flashing boot.img (from rom.zip) in fastboot before and after flashing rom in recovery mode. The phone gets past htc logo screen and then goes blank with back light on and stays there forever. I've tried 4 different roms. The only rom I was able to flash was CM7.

The phone is currently at h-boot 2.00.0029, is this why I can't flash new roms?

Any help is really appreciated

Update your recovery.img to either of following;either one is good. But make backup of any rom you're on so that you may revert it back in future.

-TWRP 2.7.1.0
-Philz touch CWM
-4EXT Recovery Touch 1.0.0.6 RC 3

By the way which four roms you've tried? if recovery is up-to-date then phone should boot normally.

I have already tried philz touch and twrp. One thing I noticed was when i did a backup in recovery and tried restoring it and always get a md5 error. The same issue with different recoveries and on multiple tries. So I just flashed system.img and boot.img to get my phone back to stock rom.

Thanks

Strange....

Well unmark md5 check on restore. And clear cache/dalvic before rebooting it,Let's see how it goes.Also want to know which perticular rom you've tried so far where you were facing this issue. Also did you format devlog partition before installing CM11 nigthlies 20140618 onwards? If not then try doing so and let me know where you gets stuck?

I'm also S-ON where most other already made S-OFF so feel free to ask me. I'll help as much as i know

Still no luck, it basically does the same thing for all roms. HTC logo shows up and then the screen goes blank with black light on. I've tried these roms:
cm-11-20140710-UNOFFICIAL-M8.1-ace.zip
ICESenseV1.1.zip
cm-7-20130301-NIGHTLY-ace.zip
MK44.4-ace-140719-RELEASE.zip
AoCP6_UW1_Port_for_Ace

I don't get any errors during the flashing process for all except the last one (AoCP6).

Also, the cm7 works sometimes and on other occasions it does the same thing as well. Could it be the sequence? I do a wipe, flash rom and then boot.img? Also, I've a broken volume button, so I flash the rom in recovery and then I do "adb reboot bootloader" and then flash boot.img, could this be causing this issue?

If it's not too much trouble could you upload system.img and boot.img backup from your phone of any custom rom? I would like to flash those from fastboot.

Thanks

Except Mokee 4.4.4 Release and CM11 M8.1 i used Philz but before that i was on CWM 5.8.1.5 and i had no issues with it. Also i've tried TWRP 2.7.1.0 too. Works perfect but i'm used to reboot into recovery by default option,which only available in CWM. Other recoveries boots into blank screen,If you powered off the device and put on charge.

Nope there isn't any sequence.... either you flash boot.img first or last it only helps in device to boot and have proper connectivity. Even if you don't flash boot.img then only your device should hang on bootloop or boots but no wifi reception. So these is something different.

Sure i can provide system.img and boot.img of M8.1 which i'm currently on. But how sure you're that it will work? I mean do you have a backup of it? Or fresh install. Also wanted to know have you ever tried format devlog partition and FULL WIPE your device?

Try using following attachments. FULL WIPE it's just an alternative of manual wipes,works with every recovery out there. And devlog partition will be formatted if any means of corrupted or remnant leftover using format_devlog zip. Meanwhile provide me details whether you got backup of M8.1 CM11 or going to flash fresh install. So that i can provide boot and system.img of it.
