Hi guys,
I can't figure this out. Why can't I flash a kernel with clockworkmod when I've unlocked my phone through htcdev.com.
Every time I flash a new rom it boot loops because the right kernel is not present.
When I boot it back in to fastboot and flash the kernel manually it boots..

If I'm correct: with a unlocked phone I should be able to flash kernels with clockworkmod.

Clockworkmod v5.8.4.0

The kernel is flashed, you just need to flash its boot.img in fast boot aswell.

to expand a bit, you flash the modules for the kernel via cwm.

and as mentioned above, you then need to flash the boot.img via fastboot as without s-off this bit can't be done via cwm.

Yeah you have to use fastboot to flash the boot and recovery partitions, an utter pain and pretty much the only time I have to connect my phone to a computer.

A nice step backward for HTC.

Actually some of roms come with kernel flasher which lets u flash kernel without booting into bootloader, just read the instruction carefully.
