Unhappy [Q] MIUI Rom gone wrong

okay so heres what happened.

I have an international htc one x that is indeed rooted with no roms installed.
I did create a back up and then tried to install the MIUI rom (but I dont really know where that is on my phone. I know I made one with rom manager. I dont have any backups on my computer though)

It worked, however, it didnt have wifi or data signals so i went back to try again.
I opened my bootloader screen. For the record, it is unlocked and hboot is version 1.73 if that helps.

I wiped cashe/data/delvic everything and even factory reset and installed the MIUI RD rom now hoping it would have a difference.

The darn thing got stuck on the MIUI bootloader for hours.

I did the same thing again a few times, sometimes in different orders and then it passed on and another screen came saying 'starting apps'. That got stuck for hours too.

Now I don't have any other roms on my phone, just the MIUI RD. The original miui just vanished too, i dont see it anymore. Also, when I put my USB wire to the phone and connect it to the pc, I cant transfer newer files into it. So this is all I have access to on my phone apparently.

I tried flashing a boot.img and a couple kernels but no luck. I've been trying to do this for all day and this is my first time so I don't know much about it.

I've been googling and somethings say to open cmd and type but i keep getting 'fastboot is not recognized as an internal or external command'

Currently, its not stuck at either the MIUI screen or the Starting Apps. but just the HTC logo screen and not going past.

I don't really want to install any new roms considering i've worked really hard to get this to work and I really want it now more so.

How do i fix this? I want to use this rom.

flash philz recovery (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2240646), usb mounting should work on that, then:

steps to install ROM
1. bootloader version should be 1.3x
2. copy ROM to SD Card
3. copy boot.img INCLUDED in the ROM zip to fastboot folder
4. flash the boot.img in fastboot
5. in recovery, wipe system/data/cache/everything
6. flash rom
7. restart

Go to recovery - mounts and storage - hook up the usb cable - tap the last option in the mounts and storage list and wait a few minutes. It won't be mounted instantly

Boot.img must be flashed via fastboot. Not via recovery !

ok, i looked up how to fastboot, downloaded sdk files and i moved the boot.img into the fastboot folder and i opened command prompt there and wrote fastboot flash boot boot.img but i keep getting:

'fastboot is not recognized as an internal or external command'

what did i miss?


EDIT: ok, so the fastboot folder i got from the page didnt work so i used a different fastboot folder, dragged the .boot there and now it worked! finally passed the screen and wifi is connecting!

thank you!
