Smile [Q] HTC Sensation Z710e won't boot past HTC logo

Hi, I'm a new member here. Today I rooted my HTC sensation Z710e in hopes of installing Kitkat 4.4.2 on it. I unlocked boot loader through HTC Dev website, installed CWM and rooted it successfully. I never S-Offed my device. It's on/was official 4.0.3 ROM. It's still S-On. I tried flashing kitkat rom through CWM. It said it's successful but when I restarted my device it just won't pass the green HTC logo. Have I somehow bricked my device ? Is there anyway of making it boot normally. I still want to install kitkat rom though.

PS: It was my first rooting attempt

Help appreciated 😊

you need to change you recovery to 4ext the lattest 1.0.0.6 RC1 and enable smartflash before flashing the rom or if it doesnt boot again you need to flash boot.img from pc via fastboott
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!

I tried flashing 4ext but CWM just says installation aborted. Do you have any guide for it ?
