    Wait. They take longer (up to 10 min) to boot up the first time.

    List all of the steps you take when flashing a ROM. Be as specific as possible.

    If you going from one ROM to another, you need to do a full wipe. System, data and, boot along with wiping the catches. If you are just updating your current ROM to a newer build then the cache wipes are all you need. Make sure you backup your apps with either titanium or mybackup because you will erase them when wiping the data.

    Soo in recovery we, Wipe Data/Factory Reset, wipe cache partition. Under Advanced submenu, wipe dalvik-cache. Then under Mounts & Storage submenu, format all partitions EXCEPT /sdcard??

    That is exactly what I do when I change ROMs, i.e. Gingerbread IHO to Quattrimus ICS. If I am just updating IHO to an improved IHO, I just wipe cache and Dalvik. Even then, sometimes, if I run into a bunch of weird problems with an upgrade, I will do the complete wiping and formatting. That has always solved the problems for me.
