Hi.

My girlfriend is really fed up with the low amount of memory on her Wildfire S, so I've decided to help I've spent large portions of today and yesterday on:
unlocking the bootloader (using htcdev.com),
rooting (using SuperOneClick http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682),
partitioning her microSD (kingston 4 GB, class 2, fat32 + 1GB EXT4 + 256 Swap if I remember correctly),
installing recovery (installed ROMManager and flashed CWM recovery from there)
and experimenting with ROMs.

The problem is that I can't get the ROMs to boot.
I've tried:
1. m1ndh4x8r GB2.3.5 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1432259 both odexed and deodexed - bootloop on the white HTC logo
2. Wildfire S Cracker GB2.3.5 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1479002 - waited almost 30 minutes for the HTC logo to disappear and boot animation to start, but that never happened.
3. HenseMod 6 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1434497 - the only ROM that managed to boot without problems. However I need all the HTC widgets, so I'm intending to switch to a different one.

I've also tried staying with the stock ROM and flashing a different kernel (OC Kernel http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1430677) so that link2SD would work with EXT4, but that didn't boot also.


Does anyone here have any idea what could be the source of all these problems? Maybe you could suggest something? A different Sense ROM, some "procedure" that could help me.
Please, I just want her to be happy

Cheers!

Sound's like a Kernel Panic. I dont know how to solve it. But I had a great Sense rom this worked for me.

I hope this will fix the Problem, and it's a really great rom.

I always wipe data, cache and dalvik, just in case.
I can't check it now, but I installed Rom Manager just yesterday so I assume, that it flashes the latest version of the recovery.

I'll be able to experiment more on Wednesday. I'll try different roms, maybe the same roms, but immediately flash different kernel etc.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thanks

I have the MetroPCS version of the WFS that I've been messing with. I got the bootloader unlocked, I got it rooted, and I got S-off (without xtc clip).

When I try to flash cm7, it throws up an error and won't install. I tried m1ndh4x8r sense 3.5 and it 'worked' except com.Android.phone kept fc'ing making it unusable. wifi also didn't work. I'd like to have sense 3.5 but would also like cm7. i also tried the cm9 roms but they don't want to install either. Is there a ROM that has both (cm7 and sense) that's stable with working wifi? I'm not using the phone for calling, just messing with mods and such but may activate it at some point if I find a suitable ROM for it.
