Default Phone Displayed HTC Logo And Then Goes To Black Screen

I installed all of the HTC Rezound KitKat ROMs I could find (at least legit looking ones), but they all have the same symptom. Upon boot, the phone vibrates, it then displays the HTC logo. Once the logo disappears it goes to a black screen and stays there for numerous minutes on end. I eventually get frustrated and pull out the battery. Below is more detailed information:

Bootloader Info:
*** TAMPERED ***
*** UNLOCKED ***
VIGOR PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-2.28.0000
RADIO-2.23.10.0123r/2.23.10.0124r
OpenDSP-v14.6.0.7708.00.0507
eMMC-boot
Sep 20 2012,17:40:22

Recovery:
ClockwordMod Recovery v6.0.3.1 (touch edition)

ROMs Tried (Verified All MD5 Hashes):
LS-KK-v3.1-OFFICIAL-vigor - LiquidSmooth Latest Stable
LS-KK-v3.2-2014-07-18-vigor - LiquidSmooth Latest Nightly
vanir_vigor_4.4.4.081614 - Latest Vanir
illusion-4.4.4-20140801-vigor-WEEKLY - Latest Illusion
Plain-Andy-4.4.2-vigor - Failed on install

Trying:
Other random ROMs that say are for Rezound

Rom That Did Just Work (Although Not What I Am Looking For Since It Is Jelly Bean)
Liquid-JB-v2.37-OFFICIAL-vigor (in gets past the black screen issue I was having, but it is quite buggy (com.android,phone continuously crashes)
Liquid-JB-v2.12-OFFICIAL-vigor (my ROM before trying to update, works just fine. I installed it so I have a working phone for the time being. It currently has no issues)

Update your recovery to the latest TWRP 2.7.1... Also, you are S-ON, so you need to flash the boot.img seperately via fastboot, you cannot flash it from recovery that is flashed in the device, or you need to boot recovery via fastboot to get the boot.img to flash.
Current Personal Phone: Google Nexus 4 on Cricket/Aio (Beanstalk 4.4.4 with hells-Core Kernel)
Current Work Phone: LG G2 VS980 on VZW (AICP 6.0 ROM)
Current Tablet: iPad 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
Other phones "in the family": HTC DNA, HTC One (M7), Motorola Moto G GPE
Previous/Retired Android Devices: HTC Aria, HTC Incredible 2, HTC Rezound, Samsung Stratosphere, Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Nextbook 8P

What ace said. Your prominent issue is that you are not fastboot flashing your kernel. If you were S=OFF it wouldn't be an issue.

Thanks! I was unaware of this additional step because the last couple of times I flashed ROMs it wasn't required or I was S-Off. I will try this out tomorrow
