2. ** To flash your kernels boot.img you need to type**
fastboot flash boot boot.img
Before flashing the boot.img, you can in fact flash your ROM.zip with the instructions given below. However, it is strongly recommended to do it before you flash the boot.img. This is the standard procedure that should be used for every single ROM.
I find this part a bit confusing. Can you reword? Am I supposed to flash boot.img first then flash my rom or flash my rom first and then flash the boot.img? The "however" is making me hesitant!
Thanks for this wonderful guide!

I am now stuck at the htc white screen with the red lettering at the bottom. I held the power button down and the power + vol down and both times the three lights at the bottom (back key, home, and recent apps) just flash at me.
I got it to go back into HBOOT by holding down power + vol down for about 12 secs, it restarts itself.. and when i tell it to reboot, it just goes back to the same screen and gets stuck.
I think i fixed it now. I went back to fastboot, flashed the recovery.img, the boot.img and then launched into cwm and reflashed viper rom. Looks like its working again.
