Reinstall stock firmware, follow the same procedure, but do NOT format system, but do make factory reset, wipe cache and dalvik cache.

oops sorry, thanks for correcting..

Yes, it finally worked! Did exactly as before but without formatting /system.

Thanks!

Soo... now I got a couple of questions that bug me:

1. How would I go about installing, for example, XROM or FXP 9.0.0 from this state?

2. Do I have to flash the stock rom, re-root etc. every time I want to flash FXP?

3. Can I test another kernel and flash the FXP 7.2.0 kernel back if it doesn't work?

4. Can I play with the Supercharger on FXP or is it rather for the stock rom and mods of the stock rom?

Thanks for reading.

first,sorry for your wasted time
kernel flashing does not need root, just an unlocked bootloader. and the kernels include preroot and CWM, so no need to root stock and install CWM everytime.

most times installing directly works. if it's needed, the thread authors mention in explicitly

I fix it using Wotan server. But what i really care about is that i want to prove new Rom, so if someone can help me i will be really thankful.

PS: Sorry if you think my english is bad, is because my main language is not english

Always before flashing a new rom do a factory reset and wipe cache
