Try Re-installing firmware from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1459767
If this doesn't solve it, find the right RUU for yourself and run it.
Guide to RUUs in my signature.
Sometimes, partitions get affected over time due to constant flashing of ROMs.
This can be corrected by flashing RUU.
THERE IS NO NEED TO S ON AFTER RUU INSTALLATION.
JUST BOOT UP YOUR DEVICE.


Need help or want to ask a quick question regarding the Xperia Z?
Head over to the Xperia Z Help Thread (Noob friendly!)

Well, don't give up!
There's no saying what your problem could be. I've tried to identify everything one step at a time eliminating one possible source of problem at a time.
Now is not the time to give up.
You must follow those steps. One of them will solve your problem for sure!
PS: I know how frustrating it can be. If you want step by step help, come on over to the IRC channel. (signature)

I found myself in a same sort of conundrum. I rooted Sensation XE without doing S-off and flashed the OrDroid 8.0.0. ROM. It installed OK and when it gets to the first boot, it's stuck at the HTC Sensation and Beats Audio logo.

I updated to ICS via OTA, and so my hboot version was 1.27.0000, therefore I couldn't use Revolutionary. I rooted it with that One X Toolkit.

I am a total n00b and majorly suck at this.

I don't know whether it's bootloop or not. The logos are completely stationary. As far as I know, it should give some sort of a signal that it's booting (logo flash or something).

Ok, after a bit of research I see the firmware could be the problem. If that's the case, I would need to flash the 3.32 firmware by first getting super CID (11111111). My CID at the moment is HTC_032. When I try to get the super CID with the command prompt, I get the following error thing:

... INFOvreg_set: request is duplicated id 14
INFO pyramid_init_sd, SD card power on ok
INFOsdcc_init_memory_device done
INFO[FAT_ERROR] fat_open_file: can not find SMART_IO.CRD
INFO[JAVACARD_ERR] SMART_IO.CRD cann't find

Anyway, at this point I don't actually know what I'm doing. Mind you, I'm S-on. Does it make any sense... what I'm doing at this point?

I'm using CWM recovery (v5.0.2.0), but PC won't recognize the SD card. Its icon is transparent and by clicking on it, it says 'Please insert a disk".

(Pardon my stand-alone thread. I didn't get a reponse there. )

I hereby thank tinky and kgs1992 for helping me solve my problem above. I needed to switch to 4ext recovery and flash the ROM again. Lesson learned.

Thumbs up for this great community!
