Just remember you have to reflash the boot.img everytime a new beta/RC is released, otherwise, the ROM will still boot but WiFi won't work.

I can't explain why, I just noticed that everytime I forgot to flash the boot.img from the new release, WiFi wasn't working anymore.

The reason is quite simple boot.img contains the kernel but the wifi kernel module (in Windows words, it's the driver) is inside the ROM. The kernel module must match the kernel so it can be loaded. S-ON device boot and recovery partitions can't be flashed in recovery mode so they're still the old ones after you install the zip. Thus the kernel is the old one and the modules are from the ROM. Therefore they can't be loaded -> no WIFI.

So manually flashing boot.img is enougth? Or I need to flash some more files?

Yeah. Every hboot 1.16/2.00 users who unlocked their bootloaders and wanted to flash custom roms must follow the process or problems will happen.

Manually flashing the boot.img is enough.
