Question [Q] Updating to CM 11

Hello

Im trying to update my HTC One S from CM 10.2 to CM 11. (Just install cm and gapps and wipe cache and dalvik).
Unfortunatly I am not able do so, I always end up with an endless bootanimation.

I found no specific information about my problem on the internet, I just heard something about HBoot 2.16.
So my question is do I need Hboot 2.16 to update to CM 11? And is there a way to do so without losing my data?

Thanks in advance.

My current setup:
CM 10.2
Hboot 2.15
TWRP 2.7.0.8
Unlocked but S-On (RL)

Don't you forget to flash the boot.img after flashing the rom ?
Also I'm not sure but I guess it's better to do a full wipe (without internal storage of course) before upadting from a version to another.
Don't care about 2.16 hboot it's only needed for few sense roms. Official CM11 updates are built for 2.15

Is it possible to flash the Boot Image with the recovery or is the only way by the fastboot command?

My Setup:
CM 11
HBoot 2.15
CWM v6.0.4.8
Unlocked but S-ON

To my knowledge, you need to use fastboot as you are S-ON. If you can, try to get S-OFF, it will be simpler.

h-boot 2.15 is regular.
You're S-ON. Open rom.zip.
Copy "boot.img" to another folder.
Boot phone in bootloader. Plug cable. "Fastboot USB" will show on screen.
Open comand promt. Type this : "fastboot flash boot boot.img".
Ready.
