    Hi There

    I am just over begginner level, so I hope someone can help me!

    I have a HTC Sensation

    - It is rooted
    - Bootloadeer is unlocked
    - CWM recovery is flashed and working

    I installed the ELEGANCIA custom rom to the phone and all was fine, apart from the WIFI was not working. In a stupid moment of madness, I flashed the stock kernel to the phone through the One X software.

    So now, when I load the phone, I just get the white HTC screen and can go no further.

    As previously stated, I can get into clockworkmod and fastboot etc.

    I have the correct kernel package on my PC, but have no idea how to flash it with the phone in this state, or if indeed this will even work. I just want to get back to a working phone now :)

    I do have access to another phone, so I can put zip files etc onto my SD card if that helps.

    Is there a rom with the correct firmware/kernels built into it, so I can literally just install the rom through clockworkmod in recovery to overwrite the old kernels automatically.

    Or can anyone give me advice on what to do now. Much appreciated in advance.

    Over the weekend i followed this guide i am go0ing to copy below, it works for all Sensations, rooted, bootloader locked and this is coming from someone that was locked to HBOOT 1.27 with the Vodafone ROM installed that was a disaster!!!

    I now have a fully unlocked phone with a new ROM which i beleive has everything that you need to sort your phone out with all the correct Kernels etc so give it a try as i don't see any reason why this shouldn't sort out your phone as i tried to install another ROM after following this guide and did the same as you and was stuck at the white HTC screen but redid this guide and the phone suddenly burst into life so i would say the ROM he uses will sort you right out.
