    what roms have you tried? how long are you waiting? some of these new roms at least for me have taking quite a bit longer then the froyo roms. so i would be patient and let it do its thing.

    The main ones that i have tried have been synergy roms and i understand that they take a while but i hit install zip from sd card on RA and clicked one of the Synergy roms and it didnt do anything for 10minutes and RA has the prgress bar in the back and it didnt do anything either it stayed black the entire time... and it will sit on the Bright white HTC evo screen for about 5-10 minutes and thats when i decide to go ahead and pull battery and boot into recovery.. i can try and just install a zip and just let my phone sit for a good 20mintues to make 100% sure that it isn't that im inpatient. lol

    I've heard it can take more than 20 minutes sometimes.

    These newer Rome are a lot larger than what we're used to flashing. It takes a substantial amount of time to build the dalvik cache when it boots the first time. I hope that's the rub of your issue, and not something more serious.

    as long as your wiping correctly then just waiting should be fine. which synergy are you trying to flash? if it is synergy rc2 w/ godmode then myn says that it should take 10-30 minutes to boot.

    When I installed synergy it just sat there for about 25 to 30 min with the progress bar at less than half then all of a sudden boom... It was done, so is say charge your battery to full and be patient :)
