Okay, I'm on day three of intense troubleshooting. Apparently I'm the only person to ever root a HTC Rezound and then flash a new rom using Rom Manager.
I flashed a new ICS Rom using Rom Manager. I did do a backup using Rom Manager and wiped all of the caches before doing the flash. There was no problem with the install, but once I rebooted, I was in a state of stuck... Stuck at the HTC Screen. In addition to that, the CWM Recovery Tool did NOTHING.
After reading and reading, I finally realized that only idiots like myself would still be using Rom Manager over Aman-Ra. Therefore, I installed Aman-Ra and flashed a few other roms trying to get past the HTC screen... All of this was without any success.
So, here I am, I only have a CWM backup that was placed on the internal storage and Aman-Ra will not recognize the file. So, I really have no backup and I'm caught in a white HTC screen.
I've gotten myself into tight jams before, but been able to figure it out... I;m just at the end of my rope here. Someone with more intelligence than myself please tell me what to do to get past this.
Ok. I did EXACTLY as you said and the instructions says. Although I originally rooted my phone about a month ago, my Hboot says S-On and the instructions for the rom is telling me I need to flash the PH98IMG.zip. I don't have that file. What steps should I take now? (By the way, I can't begin to thank you for the advice. You're a life-saver)
After the rom installs,it will boot you to fastboot. Push power to get to hboot. Allow the update.
It does not boot me into Fastboot. It gives me a "Next" button at the bottom with a log that states:
-- -Checking Model ID
Model ID - HTC Rezound (Vigor)
-Ok to proceed
Welcome to CONROM V4!!
Face Unlock REMOVE Selected
Face Unlock NOT Extracted
Beginning Experimental Security Identification
read_file() loading "/tmp/initrd.img" failed: No such file or directory
When I click "Next" I get another screen that says:
"Congratulations... CON ROM 4.0 has been installed successfully. Press Finish, and reboot your phone. If S-ON was detected, please reboot to bootloader to flash the boot image. Thanks.
It then goes into the regular reboot process. I do a battery pull, press power+vol down and go back into HBOOT, it runs through it's IMG Check and there's nothing there.
Also, I created a PH98IMG.zip file from the boot image inside the rom's zipped folder. Tried flashing that, and I'm still looking at the HTC Screen. Thanks in advance for the help

Reason: Forgot to mention the last paragraph.
S-On, tried to flash with Rom Manager. Got stuck at the HTC screen and when I go to recovery I get stuck at the ClockworkMod recovery screen with no options to pick
since you used rom managet and a permanent recovery,you havent installed a kernel.
your options are:
1)restore a backup that uses the kernel thats currently installed
2)install a kernel via fastboot flash boot bootname.img
3)install a kernel via a PH98MG file(minor PITA if youre s-on)
4)launch amon recovery(clockwork isnt good for the rezound) into phone memory with fastboot
