I rooted my Desire a few weeks back using Unrevoked 3.32 and it installed ClockWorkMod recovery 18.104.22.168. I had a few issues rooting since Unrevoked stated "triumph" and "done" but the phone wasn't rooted. Anyhow finally I managed to root it and had the Super(Ninja)User in my apps.
Last night I decided upon flashing a custom ROM and chose Blissmod007 v14 and downloaded it from xda. Didn't check the MD5 sum though
I have ROM manager installed but it was of no use so i took the back up of stock ROM from the recovery screen -> backup and restore option.
I flashed the Radio successfully from 5.11.xx to 5.17.05.23(as was recommended for the ROM).
I used the CWM recovery to install the .zip from SD card and flashed blissmod007 v14 successfully. After the flash on the first boot though, when i chose rebbot system from the recovery the phone just goes into boot loop and i can see only the green htc logo on white screen constantly.
The first boot is slow after flashing a ROM so I kept the phone away but even after an hour the phone was still at boot screen!!! Since then I have tried to reboot after wiping Dalvik Cache but it just restarts thrice(as mentioned by the dev for ROM) and gets stuck on the htc logo...
I want to know what is the best option in this case: a) Wipe Data, Wipe Cache Partition, Wipe Dalvik and restore the old stock ROM?
b) Wipe Data, Cache Partition, Dalvik and try flashing another ROM?
c) Use fastboot for
fastboot flash boot boot.img
