Default Can 4EXT flash any ROM (eg. Gingerbread)?

I've just recently done S-OFF and installed 4EXT recovery plus the latest ARHD ROM.

However I'd like to revert back to a Gingerbread ROM. Preferably a custom one.

Just wondering if 4EXT is capable of flashing any ROM or is it only compatible with the newer ROMS like ICS etc?

Could somebody also recommend a good Gingerbread ROM if possible?

Thanks.

Using Jelly Bean here so no knowledge on the latest GB ROMs.

The issue is to get compatible Firmware for the chosen ROM.

I'm a CWM user but understand that EXT4 can do all that's needed.

So What is your Radio/HBOOT version ??
HTC Desire ICS

HTC Sensation Z710e : HB 1.27.1100, ROM CM10.

Hi,

4EXT should be fine to install GB ROMS.
You will firstly need to downgrade your firmware.
1.17 is HERE
ARHD GB 3.6.13 is HERE

It's not working. As soon as I enter the bootloader with these two files on my SD card I get the
error message "Incorrect ID - Update Failed" before I even attempt to do anything. It won't even let me enter the recovery unless I remove them.

I'm on Juopunutbear 1.27 currently. Do I have to downgrade the bootloader as well? And if so how? I'm a bit stuck.
