Default Flashing Issues

I was flashing some roms earlier this evening. And i tryed to flash a kernel into gingerbread shift rom. After I did this the phone just locked onto the white htc screen on reboot. I went back into recovery and the phone wouldnt read my sd card so I couldn't restore my rooted 2.3 image. So I took the card out and put in a different one .I for some reason can flash cm7 and get it to work but I can't re-flash a newly downloaded stock gingerbread rooted rom. It just locks on that htc screen when i power up. And now the back-up of the rooted 2.3 i made says md5 sums do not match when i try to restore it in clockwork. Andbody have any ideas what is going on? If you need more info please let me know and i'll give you what a need. to help me figure it out. thanks in advance.

I haven't checked in a while, but last I knew there were no kernels that are compatible with gingerbread. (at least the stock gingerbread release) My guess is the kernel isn't going to work. Double check which kernel you flashed, and what it is compatible with, and go from there.

Are you wiping properly? At least wipe cache partition and dalvik before flashing kernel.

I always wipe everything before flashing. My number one rule to follow.

Have you tried redownloading the rom or kernel? Couldve been a bad download.
