Default My Sensation won't boot after flashing MIUI V5 4.2.14

I'm on HBOOT 1.27.00000 and S-ON.
Now I've just flashed MIUI v5 4.2.14 and it won't boot after restart.
It stays at the HTC white screen.

Is there anyone kind enough to guide me how to properly install MIUI, or, at least back to the stock rom?

I'm desperately needing help here

Change the recovery to 4ext latest 1.0.0.6 rc1 ,format everything except sd card from recovery after that enable smartflash and flash Rom,if doesn't boot up again you'll need to flash boot.img from pc via fastboot

Sent from my HTCSensation using xda app-developers app
HTC Sensation 4G T-Mobile USA
3.33 Firmware,S-off
Current Rom -ViperS 5.2.1 (4.1.2-Sense 5) Nothing is impossible!

Hit that Thanks button if in some way helped you

I finally figured it out.
After flashing the rom, have to flash the boot.img (inside the rom zip file) as well, using the command:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
Now I'm able to boot into MIUI and enjoy the new rom!

I never have to do this extra step with flashing my Desire HD, not sure why it doesn't work this time.

Anyway, thanks for your help

because on S-ON devices boot partition is still protected

So I don't really need S-OFF to flash any custom roms that I want right?
I will just have to take the extra step of flashing boot.img..

Because I can't seem to work out S-OFF on my sensation despite whole afternoon of hard-works.
Is there an easy way to S-OFF sensation other than the paper-clip hack?

no need to S-OFF for flashing custom roms
and unfortunately there is no other way except wire trick
but you can always flash 4ext recovery and avoid the extra step for boot.img
