Question [Q] Some troubles installing to desire

ok this is what i did:

1 i rooted using unevoked 3

2 (where i went wrong) i tried to install opendesire with unevoked3 using the boot.img file

3 unevoked 3 cant root my phone any more

4 tried installing open desire again using the still working clockworkmod recovery v2.5.0.7

5 the phone gets in a loop where it shows an android logo that disaperes and reapears

6 the clockwork mod seems to be still working (it boots an i see a variety of options)

my question:
what is the right course of action right now ?
1 use an other rom ?
2 do some stuff in clockwork to get root back ?
3 none of the 2 above
or am i ****ed for life now?

Many thanks in advance for the help

Using unrevoked3 to install opendesire? Well, you should've read a bit before doing that.
Well, if you can boot into recovery, then nothing is wrong.
You should doa full wipe (data/cahce/dalvik) and re-flash the ROM from CWM.

Possibly full on **** up right there my friend. What ROM was your phone running on before you tried to flash a new one? If you're clever enough to have noted that there may be hope for you yet...
OnePlus One A0001 (Sandstone Grey) 64GB
ROM: CyanogenMod 11S (XNPH33R) | Bootloader: Stock | Recovery: Stock | Radio: Stock | Kernel: Stock

Google Nexus 5 D821 (Black) 32GB
ROM: Android 4.4.4 (KTU84P) | Bootloader: HHZ11K | Recovery: Stock | Radio: | Kernel: Stock
