I found myself in a same sort of conundrum. I rooted Sensation XE without doing S-off and flashed the OrDroid 8.0.0. ROM. It installed OK and when it gets to the first boot, it's stuck at the HTC Sensation and Beats Audio logo.
I updated to ICS via OTA, and so my hboot version was 1.27.0000, therefore I couldn't use Revolutionary. I rooted it with that One X Toolkit.
I am a total n00b and majorly suck at this.
I don't know whether it's bootloop or not. The logos are completely stationary. As far as I know, it should give some sort of a signal that it's booting (logo flash or something).
Ok, after a bit of research I see the firmware could be the problem. If that's the case, I would need to flash the 3.32 firmware by first getting super CID (11111111). My CID at the moment is HTC_032. When I try to get the super CID with the command prompt, I get the following error thing:
... INFOvreg_set: request is duplicated id 14
INFO pyramid_init_sd, SD card power on ok
INFO[FAT_ERROR] fat_open_file: can not find SMART_IO.CRD
INFO[JAVACARD_ERR] SMART_IO.CRD cann't find
Anyway, at this point I don't actually know what I'm doing. Mind you, I'm S-on. Does it make any sense... what I'm doing at this point?
I'm using CWM recovery (v184.108.40.206), but PC won't recognize the SD card. Its icon is transparent and by clicking on it, it says 'Please insert a disk".
(Pardon my stand-alone thread. I didn't get a reponse there.
