This is removed HTC.

A user reported this problem when selected German Keyboard when flashing. Maybe you have the same issue. Try without it if this is the case. It might work. (Shutdown your phone, re-flash the boot.img, re-wipe everything (NOT SD-CARD!) and re-flash the ROM. That should fix it.)

Flash this zip by recovery. Reboot to Sense. Start this version, there will be a message that there are other Superuser applications and i fit must try to deinstall that ones. Choose Yes
