Forgive my ignorance and frustration here, but ive been trying to get this rom installed. I first started out flashing DS JB 1.7 last night - i was running mikrom 0.7(GB) - wiped the while device, stats, cache, factory reset, then flashed DS 1.7 - but the device seems to be stuck hanging at the factory boot up page for hours -you know with the white background with "T-Mobile MyTouch 4G slide" .
I recall hearing issues of people trying to flash 1.7 directly and not doing an upgrade from some previous version of JellyBean DS... but was hoping for some guidance...
it seems im having the same issue as :

I originally flashed 1.3, and dirty flashed to 1.4 with no problems, everything I use works great.
However, when I flash 1.5 or 1.7, I get an infinite boot loop. Sometimes it makes it to the spinning CM logo for a second, but not usually.
I tried both dirty flashing and clean flashing 1.5 and 1.7 all with the same result.
I see some people talking about the kernel.
According to "about phone" I have 3.0.94-WildKernel-reloaded....
Also, I am Revolution unlocked, S-Off, and the 1.44 Hboot.
Am I missing something? I would love to use the new versions.
However - I also tried rewiping and flashing 1.4 and 1.3 - which give me the same problem. Frustrated i wiped it all again flashed the wildkernel 8, and tried then flashing the same 1.7, 1.4 and 1.3 with a full wipe inbetween, granted im still running GB and its been a long time since ive flashed a rom, but something is amiss and i can really use some help. I dont even get to the CM spinning logo..
my scenario (PREVIOUS to FLASHING the DS JB 1.X and WildKernel 8):
Miktouch 0.7 (gingerbread)
doubleshot PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
nov 21, 2011
CM recovery 126.96.36.199
as i said i tried flashing a few (with full wipes in between) of the DS JB rom without success...
As i was running GB near stock, I have not experimented with any alternate kernel, so thought that perhaps it was needed, so i:.
a) flashed new kernel (wildkernel 8)
b) flashed jellybeanDS 1.4 (on top)
c) rebooted & noticed it was stuck at white "tmobile my touch slide " screen.... so regardless i pulled battery and
c) dirty flashed jellybeanDS 1.7 on top thinking it might fix the issue but no go
it seems like i always get stuck at white screen boot screen that has the fancy "T-Mobile MyTouch 4G slide" text on it no matter what i try.
Given that my device is pretty much wiped, is there a log file somewhere i might be able to post to help solve this issue?
