I can't for the life of me get my ROM to boot. I own an HTC Incredible S with HBOOT 2.02 S-OFF. I'm trying to build a ROM based off the latest 4.0.4/3.6 RUU for my phone. Even when I don't change anything about the ROM except for adding root permissions,busybox,bash, and zipaligning, the ROM still fails to boot. It installs just fine now that I studied edify and corrected my updater script, but won't get past the white HTC screen.
Any ideas what could be causing my problems guys? I can upload my ROM for someone to take a look at if need be.
This could be because of bash OR zipaligning..
Read this for zipaligning...u might have missed a few crucial points.. : http://developer.android.com/tools/help/zipalign.html
If zipaligning properly doesnt solve it...
Replace bash by the original bourne shell..
PS: Best Of Luck! Hope your ROM starts working!
Dont forget to hit thanks if i helped!
Awesome I had zipaligned as one of the first steps of creating my ROM instead of doing it at the end. That could be causing my problems. I'll check it out now that I'm not at work. What do you mean by replace bash by the original bourne shell? Also what are other ways to create custom ROMs? Can it be done in eclipse for example? Or does it need to be built through the command line interface using the android SDK? What are my other options for developing my own ROMs that doesn't mostly automate the process like the kitchen? Of course I'll continue using the kitchen until I have a better understanding of how things work, I'm just asking for future reference.
There are other ways...like right now your a chef(using the kitchen to cook/modify ROMs)..not a developer(who uses source to compile his own ROM...e.g AOSP, Cyanogen etc)...
I'll give you a link to 2 videos that taught me how to do it(the developer style)...but I'm not currently building ROMs due to Harddisk space issues..
Here's the links :

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFqELLB1Kk8
PS: I hope you wont have problems with his accent...just listen closely and it'll be simple to understand!
PS2: Bourne shell is the "sh" that you replaced by bash...try reverting back to sh...and at this point *create a backup*...if after the zipaligning..all works well..cook your ROM..keep a backup of the working ROM too...and then add bash to ^^^^^ this backup..and try cooking another one if you want a bash version only..
Check this thread..its not for your phone...but you can take the idea from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1090834
PS3 : Eclipse cannot be used to create ROMs (As far as i know)...You can however create apps for android in eclipse...heres a tutorial for that: http://www.vogella.com/articles/Android/article.html
Hope i helped! Dont forget to hit thanks if i did!
You are freaking awesome, thank you so much for all the great tips and guides! I'll be sure to watch the videos, and read through all the guides. I've spent hours upon hours reading various guides trying to learn all this from absolutely zero previous experience in programming. It's damn fun learning it though, I've always loved technology and it makes it even better being able to program it and tell it what to do myself.
