I am 1.14 hboot. And when you say "type in", where do I type that? I haven't had the need to use a command prompt yet for ROMs.
When you say you're flashing the boot.img, how and where are you doing that? This may explain the issues. Normally, from what I know, you need to flash the boot.img through FASTBOOT USB (go to bootloader with VOL DOWN + POWER, use VOL to navigate to "FASTBOOT", select power, then plug in the USB). Once you have FASTBOOT USB connected, you then need to open up a command prompt window in your fastboot folder, put the boot.img file into the same folder, and then run
fastboot flash boot boot.img
"boot.img" can be replaced with whatever the file name is of the kernel.
If most of this doesn't make sense, that's definitely why the ROM isn't working correctly.

it seems like it would definitely help quite a bit. I'm still on HBOOT 1.09 so I haven't ever had a need to separately flash the boot.img, so I don't have personal experience but that app is probably fantastic (give the OP a Thanks for sure). Also, >THIS LINK<
has a huge amount of info collected into tons of links (it's a sticky in the One X Development thread), you should be able to gain some clarity there for sure.
