    If you're using fastboot to flash the boot.img, using our mini-sdk, I believe the command is something along the lines of:
    This is how it would be done on a nexus and I'm not sure if HTC has different fastboot syntax or not.

    Oh ok jhawkkw I actually used those commands when I rooted my phone. So I think they will work.

    Cool let us know if it works :)

    Don't forget to transfer the boot.img from the pac zip to your sdk folder if you haven't yet.

    HTC uses the same fastboot-mac application.

    Just to explain, the "period-slash" at the start of the command "./fastboot-mac ..." means to look in the current directory in the terminal for the executable file called fastboot-mac. You could actually use similar syntax on Windows, with a .\fastboot - Windows uses backslashes rather than slashes, of course - but Windows by default will search the current directory for executable files, so the period-backslash is redundant. The Mac (and other *nix based operating systems) do not do that - they only look for folders in the system Path.

    Open up the pacman zip file, don't unzip

    There should be 3 files

    META-INF
    system
    boot.img

    I think, but I'm not quite sure, that because the device is S-On, that it prevents you from flashing the kernel necessary to run an AOSP rom. So the rom has the boot.img in the zip file that you have to extract and then flash it manually through fastboot in your terminal window.

    Am I just reinstalling my root?

    No you've already got root, the boot.img is just your kernel that wasn't able to be flashed when you flashed the rom

    I've already tried that by flashboot flashing it in my command prompt and it didn't seem to work.

    To run the ruu no, you'll need to re lock the bootloader though.

    There is a chat irc client if you scroll all the way to the top and hit chat live. It's usually dead in there but it helps out in times where people need to communicate faster.

    Today I tried installing a PACman Android 4.1.2 and it completely failed on my phone because I did not realize that I had a 1.58 instead of 1.50. I then began the process of trying to fix it and I got to the step where I relocked my i bootloader and was running ruu and It didn't work. I got the error message 140. I would really appreciate your help guys. Thank you
