    The first time I tried flashing, I didn't, I had put the zip on SD card and tried mounting it that way. That didn't work, and then I learned I had to flash the boot.img with fastboot. I did that, and when it rebooted, it worked fine, including WiFi. However, after setting up phone and rebooting, WiFi would not work again.

    The somewhere that I know I screwed up was I did 'fastboot flash system boot.img'. That is why I had to go back to completely stock. After that I went step by step again, based on the info provided in beginning of this thread, unlocked bootloader, rooted phone, flashed recovery, wiped data, cache, dalvik-cache, factory reset wipe, flashed boot.img, flashed gapps, rebooted, and yet freezes on 'Rogers' splash screen, will not boot into CM.

    Have you tried other ROMs?

    I originally tried the PAC-Man ROM, but didn't really like it, so tried the CM ROM, and got the above results

    It's a long shot, but what about wiping /system and /boot?

    That's something I wasn't sure about. If I wipe /boot, I can easily reflash with boot.img, but what about wiping /system? Do I have to reflash with a system.img file?

    I wouldn't think so, I just thought that's where the ROM is housed. So flashing the ROM would restore it.

    You can just flash the SuperUser that is located in the recovery.

    The letters "efghi" mean what versions of Android they work with, Eclair, FroYo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich. If you see SuperUser in your apps, click on it and go to "Check for update". It should tell you if you're rooted correctly.

    1) You're not supposed to extract/unzip the SuperUser file. At all. Just get the zip and place it on your SD card.

    2) You downloaded the Fastboot Command Folder, right?

    Great! So that folder you downloaded with the 3 files, open that folder, and in a blank space in that window, hold down the Shift key and then right click. You should now see an option to "Open Command Window Here". Use that, and it should work now.

    Here's a list. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1486024

    Personally, I love the look of BoRKeD ROM, but if you're looking for tons of mods and stability, I suggest HOLLICS ROM.

    There are others too, so take a look!
