Default How do I know if I did this correctly? HTC One m7

I had an older ViperROM on my phone, and attempted to go to ViperONE 6.x.x

I orginally attempted to flash the ROM using Clockwork, but then I read that was a no-go, but only after it was too late.

For awhile I couldn't even find my phone in ADB sideload mode.

I've since managed to flash TWRP onto the device, and now I've successfully installed ViperONE on my m7.

Only now I can't get past the startup.

It keeps saying HTC dialer has crashed, even though I've opted to remove sense during the aroma installer. (i've also tried this keeping sense, and it reacted the same way)

During my first couple install attempts, it was throwing error code: 7, but it hasn't done that in my last couple attempts.

Right now, my device just keeps rebooting any time I try to complete the initial setup.

How do I know if this "Success" is really a success? I mean...is this just a hurdle I have to get past before it's working again?
