Flash roms through recovery and don't decompress the zip file.

Those are normal.
Bootloader checks the root of the sdcard for any updates, which is why you get the error.

The recovery is probably based on an internal recovery build at HTC, but it works.

noob here... I guess i didn't s-off cuz I'm not sure what that is, please explain.
Does it have anything to do with clearing the cache? What are the commands either way?
Thank you for the reply

S-off has not been achieved yet. They are typing the code wrong. Code- fastboot flash boot boot.img. This must be done from the fastboot folder on their pc using a command prompt window.

If you have already unlocked your bootloader, you have the fastboot files on your pc. Flash the kernel zip file in recovery. On your pc, open the kernel zip with 7zip, copy the boot.img to your fastboot folder. Reboot your phone into bootloader, select fastboot on your phone and connect to your pc.

On your pc, open a command prompt window and change directory to your fastboot folder. Type in the following code: "fastboot flash boot boot.img" , without the quotation marks. Make sure you only have the one boot.img, or rename it to whatever you like. I keep several different ones for different roms and have them named for the rom they match. Just replace "boot.img" with whatever you renamed it.

Scroll all the way to the bottom, press volume down to loop back to the top. Press volume up, then volume down . Do this a couple times and you will get a notification at the bottom of the screen about menu and power buttons. Now it should work. Or flash TWRP 2.2, I recommend that one.
