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?

if you are on S-ON flash 4ext recovery
format all partitions except sdcard from 4ext
enable smartflash from 4ext
flash the rom
done

@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"

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

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.

you are already unlocked your bootloader..so you don't need get identifier token again to unlock your bootloader..

1. first way..like what rzr86 and jmcclue said above..because you're still s-on but already had unlocked bootloader..they've suggest you to installing 4ext recovery for the next future you can easily installing of custom rom...because 4ext recovery is already option "SmartFlash" that fuction can installing custom rom with automatically supported also installing a boot.img from the rom itself under s-on devices like yours..
to installing that 4ext recovery...you can download recovery.zip from here.., then extracted that recovery.zip file to get recovery.img file...then copied recovery.img file to your sdk / adb folder (that are a same place as your adb.exe and fastboot.exe), after that...you can boot your phone to bootloader mode..then select "FASTBOOT" from there, then plug your phone to pc..until indicator in the phone has "FASTBOOT-USB", after that you can open cmd from your adb folder (just press and hold shift + right click on empty space from that folder and select "Open command window here") ...then typing command "fastboot devices" ..see if the output has detect your phone serial number.. if so...then continued typing "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" then "fastboot reboot-bootloader" done..now you can tested it go to your 4ext recovery..and now you can enabled it "SmartFlash" from tools option before you installing any custom rom from 4ext recovery...

2. second way...if you don't want change you cwm recovery..you can fix your booting stuck by just flashing a boot.img extracted from the rom.zip itself with manual flashing from fastboot..
to do that...firstly just copied rom.zip that you wanna installing to another folder..then extracting / unzipping that file...then copied boot.img to your adb / sdk (same place as your adb.exe and fastboot.exe) folder..then after you've already installing that custom rom from cwm..you must reboot your phone to bootloader again (don't booting the rom first), then select FASTBOOT from there..then plug your phone to pc until indicator in your phone has FASTBOOT-USB..then open cmd from your adb / sdk folder..then typing command "fastboot flash boot boot.img" then "fastboot reboot" done...now you can see that the phone can booting of the rom normally or not..

hope this help..
