Info 2 [Q] HTC Desire Z NOT BOOTING at all and cannot make S-OFF

My Desire Z was previously running official updated Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. I did the following.
1. unlocked bootloader from official HTCDEV.
2. installed CWM 6.0.4.5 with fastboot from this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2561226
3. According to instructions from this link http://www.teamandroid.com/2013/03/1...-custom-rom/2/, in CWM recovery, I wiped data.
4. Then I installed Custom ROM AOSP 4.2.2 zip and Gapp received from this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2163579

After that, and Now, no matter how I try, my Desire Z cannot boot anymore and hanging only at HTC logo white screen.


-I can only go to fastboot mode and go to CWM recovery 6.0.45.

-I tried wipe data, cache, dalvick cache from recovery, but still cannot boot.

-This is the detail of the bootloader and system:
VISION PVT SHIP S-ON
HBOOT-0.85.0015
MICROP-0425
RADIO-26.10.04.03_M
eMMC-boot
DEC 20 2010,16:21:13

Carrier: htc Asia WWE

Model: PC1011000

-I saw s-on when I power on at bootloader mode. I don't know how to root and make s-off.

-I cannot use ADB because I cannot boot and my adb cannot find the device in bootloader/fastboot mode.

-In CWM mode, my adb saw it as "SH118RT01215 recovery" with adb devices command.

-So with CWM mode, When I run "adb shell cat /dev/msm_rotator" command, I received "cat: read error: Invalid argument"

-When I run "chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/fre3vo" after "adb push", it shows "no such file or directory"

-I tried to do instructions given as on http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1178912 but received errors.

-I also tried instructions from http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/HTC_De...Gingerbread%29 but no luck.


I would like to install custom ROM and use Android 4.x on my Desire Z.
What should I do now? Please help.

Being you are s-on, after flashing a custom ROM in recovery you need to boot into bootloader and flash the kernel via fastboot

Unzip the ROM, extract the boot.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot reboot

After this when up and running I highly suggest relocking your phone and following the steps to downgrade and root via gfree
