Hi,

You need to flash the boot.img (which you can get by unzipping it from the rom .zip) via fastboot.

Install the rom first as usual on 4EXT, and then:

- Extract the boot.img and place it on your adb PC folder
- Start Sensation on fastboot usb
- Flash the boot.img: fastboot flash boot boot.img
- Reboot

If the rom you want to install has choices for custom kernels, you have to extract the .img which match the kernel you choose at rom install and flash it via fastboot as described.

If you don't do this way you will be stuck at bootloops.

The explanation of this is, as you have unlocked via HTCdev method and still s-on, the kernel are not flashed in boot partition when you install the rom from recovery, but you can flash it by using adb/fastboot from the command line.

Hi,

I am really pleased to see a success story here.

Thanks.

I downloaded and installed a stock ROM from mike1986 thread !! Before installing i cleared the cache data/factory reset and delvik's cache from recovery and then
- Extract the boot.img and place it on your adb PC folder
- Start Sensation on fastboot usb
- Flash the boot.img: fastboot flash boot boot.img
- Reboot

you got stock recovery so you need to have custom recovery
4EXT is good one so
flash the recovery / install recovery from this thread
recovery here

its a apk...so just download it to your sd card and install it....when installing it'll ask you whether you are s-on or not...say "yes" -> this is pretty important

after that you can download the rom and install it...as per the steps provided by "htcsensationz710e"

if you got doubts..let me know

Current phone: Nexus 5 -with franko kernel
