I'm not well versed at rooting and kernels but will try to explain my problem. I followed option 1 from above. when i tried to reboot i get stuck on the screen that says htc quietly brilliant.
I am using the charmeleon rom. I found out that I can replace the boot.img from the charmeleon file in the adk directory on my laptop and then use the "fastboot boot boot.img" instruction in the command prompt and the system reboots perfectly.
My problem is anytime I try to reboot the phone i get stuck on the screen i mentioned above and need my laptop and have to repeat the command prompt thing.
Has anyone ran into this? Does anyone even now what I'm trying to say and know how to fix it?
