HTC Inspire Noob Help

Hello ladies and gentleman.
I've had my HTC Inspire for approximately 9 months. It's a decent phone but today I decided to try Rooting my device.
I used the Ace Hack Kit and followed step by step and even read the Effin Manual
Anyways all went well and I ran the tests that were needed.
Now, I'm having difficulties putting a ROM on, I've been trying to do CM7.2 and I've just had no luck. I've googled it and haven't had much luck with that either.
Sorry to make this so long!

So, what is your question?? in the Effen manual you have an explanation how to flash a rom. Make sure that before you do anything you first do a backup of your current rom...

If i remember correctly, and that is if you are rooted, you need to install cm7.1 and then cm7.2 on top of it. Cm7.2 is an update and not a rom. Remember to make a back up before anything. If you havent done it yet, install 4ext touch from xda.

I would say if you not got the Rom working try another but over all its put the rom file on the root of the sd card,then boot into recovery wipe cache ,delvik wipe user data and go to install flash zip and that's about it for flashing a rom. But a couple of tips if you always do a Rom back up with clockwork mod once you get clockworkmod when you open it the 1st thing is flash clockwork do so..then backup

Kerenls will help battery life..etc
