I just recently wanted to Cyanogenmod my friends' phone (which I have done with many others already) and never could get it to actually boot anything but the stock rom.
I S-OFF'ed it via HTCDev and installed the 4X recovery. (not sure if the name is right, I don't have the phone here)
Then I Installed the custom Rom after Wiping Cache/Dalvic/Factory Reset and it went through, but every Rom gets either stuck at the "HTC" screen or in the case of Cyanogenmod (Official) it got the the Boot animation and then looped.
Anyone knows what could've gone wrong? I re-flashed the stock Rom after giving up and now the phone seems to have issues with the WiFi connection.
So how do I get a custom Rom to actually Boot?
