Default [Q] Trying to install new rom, stuck on htc red text when booting

Hi guys

I keep getting stuck on the the htc boot screen with the red text underneath when trying to install the 4.3.1 carbon rom for my Htc one s3.

Steps I've taken not necessarily in this order:
  • ]I've unlocked my bootloader.
    Downloaded the rom and gapps cm 10.2 to my sd card
    flashed twrp 2.7.1 recovery
    flashed the boot file
    entered recovery clicked the recommended option for wipe
    installed the rom and then gapps
    cleared cache
    reboot (Although just before rebooting it says that my phone is not rooted, would I like to install supersu to root it, which I did)

Am i missing something?

You are maybe forget to intick the fast boot it always make problem

Hi,

I had to untick the fastboot as it wasn't loading the bootloader. I did a factory wipe, flashed boot image, factory wipe again, installed cm10.2 but during installation I'm getting a failed error. Anyone know why this is?

Could it possibly be because I have no superuser app on my phone? is superuser needed?

Because you are not rooted that's why

Haha thanks that's part of the problem, I'm a noob to all this. I am now rooted using superSU v1.9x but still getting same problems.
I'm also trying to use sideload but it's just stuck saying 'starting adb sideload feature stuck'

Sorry for spamming the forum, but I just don't seem to be getting anywhere after hours trying..

My plan now is to go back to the stock rom, I just want to make sure I'm flashing the correct one

I think my phone is actually an S4 rather than S3.
hboot: 2.13.0000
radio: 1.11.50.05.28
tmob005

would this RUU be the correct one to install:

RUU_Ville_U_JB_45_S_HTC_Europe_3.16.401.8_Radio_1. 11.50.05.28_10.27.50.08L_release_301814_signed_2_4 .exe

You're on Tmobile, i gues...
Search one for you're phone company, for you're country.
