I have attempted to install Liquid Smooth ROM and OmniROM with the same result. I had a JB Liquid Smooth ROM on there before and it was working ok. The ones I tried to install were KitKat ROMs.
Any ideas? It is possible I might have accidentally deleted something I shouldn't (wiping caches from within TWRP), but I can't really think of what that would be. When I have installed these ROMs from TWRP it does tell me it was successful.
Not likely... I am assuming your Rezound is S-ON, so you need to manually flash the boot.img using fastboot from the ROM -AFTER- flashing the ROM and gapps or the ROM will not boot. When an HTC device is S-ON, recovery cannot flash the boot.img, so it has to be done manually.
1. Flash ROM and Gapps
2. Reboot phone into bootloader and start fastboot, connect the USB cable
3. In the rom.zip file you flashed, find and extract the file called "boot.img" and place it in the fastboot directory on your PC
4. Enter the command: fastboot flash boot boot.img
from the fastboot directory
5. Reboot and give it some time, initial boot on some ROMs can exceed 5-10 minutes.
