I have an HTC Sensation with ICS Android on it. How can I revert back to Gingerbread?

I have root and s-off. I tried to flash my Gingerbread ROM (??) in the recovery but am now stuck in a boot loop.

    What do you mean "no effect"? What happened when you flashed the rom?

  • Just out of curiosity; why do you want to revert to Gingerbread? Also, can you try another ROM? Try reflashing /system if that is a part of the instructions. Also try a stock factory reset.

  • -I tried about 12 or 15 ICS roms but gingenbread is better to me. -Yes, I've done a full wipe before flashing

Do this:

  • Boot into Recovery
  • Wipe cache
  • Wipe Dalvik cache
  • Wipe them again
  • Install your ROM

The first successful boot afterwards is going to take a while, as it is rebuilding Dalvik cache.

If you are not boot looping here, just let it go for a long while. If it boots a while and reboots, wait some more.
