Default Help, every ROM I've tried just gets stuck in bootloop

Ok, Ive unlocked my bootloader, installed CWM, rooted my device and checked that it worked, and when I go to the boot loader and select recovery it takes me to CWM. Ive made backups from it and and they restore fine. I even installed a custom kernel and it worked because noFrills let me OC/choose a different governor. Yet from the three ROMs Ive tried so far, they install fine, no errors from CWM, but when I boot up it just gets stuck booting forever. Ive tried wiping everything, Ive tried wiping some things, heck I even tried wiping nothing but I still get the same issue. Id really like to try a new ROM now that I went through the trouble of voiding my warranty, so please try to help me. Thanks in advance, alexbenh

I know this seems obvious, but are the ROMs you are flashing specific for your device?

If you're flashing a kitkat ROM, make sure you're already running KitKat. If you're still on 4.3, then fastboot flash the stock 4.4.2 image first, then try custom roms

WOOOHOOO, I reinstalled the stock 4.4 firmware and everything, I couldnt root it with superboot so I just skipped the rooting step. Then I flashed CWM through the bootloader although I decided to take a risk and instead of "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img", I did "mfastboot flash recovery recovery.img" just to see if it would change anything. Not sure if thats why it works for me now, but its worth a try. Good luck to the rest of you who have this problem.

Yes, I was already running the stock 4.4 ROM the only differences was that I had a custom kernel which could possibly be an issue, but I wouldnt think so
