Default Help please.

Long time android user and "moder" here. Never owned an HTC device other than the ONE which I didn't have long. I just acquired this phone from some guy at my job who tried to mod it and he has it rooted with CM10 (which is ICS right? because it's ICS on it don't remember if it was 10 or not). I've downloaded, many, many roms over the past few days from JB to KK and tried to flash them and I successfully flash them in CWM but it just stays on the white HTC screen, and doesn't boot up. Any idea why this is happening?

@C-4Nati also..if your bootloader is still s-on state (and stil using cwm recovery)..did you already flashing a boot.img from the rom that you had already installed..?
if not yet..you can try flashing it through fastboot.. "fastboot flash boot boot.img"
press the button .. then you have proved that you really appreciate someone help

HTC Sensation XE Z715e >>S-OFF||4Ext_Recovery||ViperS 5.1.0 Sense 5 ROM

If we know ur bootloader details then would make things easier, (turn off phone then press volume down + power) anyway, both these links will get u to where u want to be

Or here. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1631861

Also as @rzr86 said, flash latest 4ext recovery (added below)

I installed the sdk and fastboot and everything, and when I enter the fastboot oem token indentifier command all the command prompt says is waiting on device. I've double checked all instructions and it just keeps saying waiting on device.

Edit- I tried to flash the 4ext in cwm and it said installation aborted everytime.
