Stuck after flashing

I recently bought an used Desire Z (euorpean version) and it had a Cyagenmod on it, but I don't like that and wanted to install a Stock rom. I've downloaded this (the second one) started the phone in Bootloader, went into recovery, wiped all caches and data, installed the zip from the zip and restarted it. It loaded but couldn't pass the htc screen, so I thought it could be a good idea to flash the boot.img via fastboot but that also didn't help (I waited about 30minutes but nothing happened).

I already rooted a Samsung S5something, a htc Desire HD and a htc evo 3d but I'm really stuck with this one.

Here are the infos from the bootloader:

Sep 8 2010,15:56:38

System Info:
Touch Panel-Atmel224_20aaY
OS Ver.-1.19.531.1
eMMc-samsung 2151MB 4407295sectors

Is it bricked? If yes can I repair it or should I trash it?
Is here maybe someone from europe whom I could send this phone to flash the newest stock rom on it? I really love that phone and always wanted to have one (this special one is in nearly perfect condition).

Please help me cause I'm helpless

I doubt you are bricked, it was probably just a bad flash or a bad download as that ROM should work fine for you. And being you are s-off you don't need to flash the kernel from fastboot
Just do a full wipe/format and flash the ROM again or try another, all links found here
Just pick a gingerbread sense ROM and it will be a rooted version of stock. Just be sure to wipe all partitions in either recovery or fastboot
Best of luck!

I tried 3 different Roms now:

Virtuos Sense Gingerbread
WWE_2.42.405.4 Rooted StockROM
T-Mobile G2 Stock (OTA 2.16.531.5) Rooted

This time I didn't flash boot.img via fastboot and none of them will load. The phone is stuck in the htc screen allthough the setup always says that it was completed successfully.
I never had so many problems with a phone before.

If it matters the phones uses ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.1.0

I just realised I have a G2 and not a Z.

Could some please post me a stock Gingerbread Rom that works 100% with the G2 in europe? Cause I'm really really frustrated and desperate (sitting here around 4 hours and nothing works).

Don't worry about G2 vs DZ ROMs, it wont matter just he preference
Grab the latest 4ext recovery and format all partitions in recovery then flash away

I forgot how to do this (i had 4ext touch on my Desire HD and Evo3D) and here I can only find apk files, could you please give me a link to a file that I can flash onto the G2? Or tell me how to install the apk without an OS.

See the thread I linked you prior
There is a section on recoveries and if that wont help see the section on fastboot

THX alot, I figured it out and I managed to get it starting.

Now I've got only one last question.
Where can I get a 2.42.405.5 or at least 2.42.405.4 for my device, I'm asking because mine says all the time that is an update (but updating fails, I know -> S-OFF)? The only things I've found here are 2.42.405.4 (which i cant download for some reason) and 2.42.405.4 (WiFi doesn't work).

I'm not sure really as I couldn't stand the stock ROMs for this phone, especially with so many superior custom ROMs to pick from.
Maybe just grab a stock based ROM, it will be much more stable, better battery life etc and you won't even have to remove any of the bloat. But of course that's your choice
