Hey I have a HTC evo 3d gsm EMEA x515 hboot 1.53.007 stock ICS, as I said in description.
I unlocked bootloader via HTC dev method, then I installed recovery and I rooted it .Then I tried to flash kitkat trough recovery. After flashing it said <installation aborted> and i rebooted.
Now I am in bootloop: when i turn the phone on it shows the htc boot logo then after about 30 secs it restarts and show again htc logo and again restars.
I can get into bootloader , cwm recovery.
I tried to flash a rom but now it appears htc logo then a lighted black screen.
I read some other posts and it sais to flash the boot.img icluded in rom.
I have the boot.img but now i don't know how to flash it.
please someone tell me how

It's because the 1.53 hboot is not compatible with kitkat or other ics + roms ,you can flash the srock ics rom or cool ics or other ics rom's but not kitkat,try to flash the CoolICS rom

Did you backup your rooted stock rom before flashing?
If yes restore it.
If you don't have 4ext recovery, install it.
The easiest way is to use the recovery updater app.
When you install 4ext recovery with this app, you are asked if you're s-on.
If you click yes, the smart installer feature will be activated in 4ext.
This means, you don't have to flash the boot.img separately with fastboot.
If you want to install other than ICS sense roms, you have to do the wire trick to get s-off (look here) for instructions and forget any other tutorial.
