he created two partitions
one to be recognized as /data and one to be recognized as /system and mounted them successfully(if i remember well)
but i can't find that post
if i find it i will come with edit

Yes, I managed to boot my sensation from SD card by moving both /system and /data partition using a patched boot.img and modified rom install script...

Here is the link to the thread:http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-...ssues-t2859588

Posted in Q&A as I didn't had privileges.

PS: I have to add some e2fsck commands as well as after some time the log starts showing warnings on mounts in the log but phone working ok.

Thanks, I tried your method precisely, yet the installation failed again. Moreover, the log doesn't even show anything useful this time (I think).

Log from 4EXT:
Code:
Starting AROMA INSTALLER version 2.56

aroma/s: Open Archive
aroma/s: Initializing Resource

EV MT: minX: 0  maxX: 0  minY: 0  maxY: 0

...
(bunch of lines similar to those last three)
...

aroma/s: (1) Freetype fonts loaded as Font Family
E:Error in /sdcard/Revelation_1.0.3.zip
(Status 0)
Installation aborted.
The zip is the one with the replaced boot.img and updater-script. The installation failed roughly around 51% of the process.

Seems like I have attached the wrong updater-script with the thread. Try the one that is attached to this. Please note the ext is .txt as edited in notepad(in office at the moment).

Use the attached boot.img as well... Once you confirm success, i will update my original post with the new files.

Awesome, just tried it and it works now The only problem I have now is the wifi refuses to turn on for some reason...but hey, I basically have a working Sensation again, so thanks a lot! Shame there isn't something universal that could make it work for (almost) any ROM.

Glad that it worked. For me the WiFi works as well.

Can you share the boot log, which will have info on why WiFi is failing.

I'm not exactly sure what is considered boot log, but here is my kmsg if that's it.

I have compared it to mine and can't find any suttle differences. You might want to try re-installing...

BTW, I am now trying to install Slimkat.. will share the scripts if mine boots ok.

Already tried reformating and reinstalling twice, still the same. That would be nice, different ROM might help
