I don't know why I waited so long before upgrading to ICS (Android Revolution). It's great. Battery life seems to be markedly improved.

Ok so I just got a new sensation off one of my family members who didnt want it as they felt they needed an iphone.

I am going through the process of trying to install Icecream and I have an encountered a problem.

This is the guide I am using.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1192300

STEP 2. To INSTALL Recovery - v5.0.0.8

1. Download recovery v5.0.0.8 for the Sensation HERE: or Multiupload
2. Copy the PG58IMG file into the Root folder of your SD card (The main Folder of your Memory Card)
3. Turn off your phone FUlly and reboot into the Bootloader/HBOOT screen (see post above on how to get to hboot screen)
4. Press Volume up to Accept when it asks" Do you want to start the update"
5. Press Power Off to Reboot back to android after installation is successful (normal screen with homescreen)
6. Delete PG58IMG from your memory card and you can now root using step 3 below or install a custom ROM using CWM (Customs Roms are already rooted)

I am at step 2.5 of this process and everything 'successfully updated' and I Power off to reboot back to android.

This is where my problem lies: It is now in a state of perpetual boot loop and I have no idea what to do!

Any advice?

I apologise for being a complete idiot with regards to this and if I am missing something obvious, forgive me.

What you want to do is go in to the boot loader not the actual system... turn off your device then hold down the Vol down button and power at the same time
(dont let go of the volume down button until it gets to a white screen)

So it shouldnt matter that it is in a loop?

It updated everything fine from the PG58IMG file and now it looks like this

So everything updated successfully to the point where it says Update successful. I removed the PG58IMG and it is now in it has reached its state of perpetual booting.

You should now be good to go into recovery and flash the new custom ICS Rom :-)

Stick this file on your sd card http://www.4shared.com/zip/ej2NktyE/PG58IMG_2.html 
then boot into the bootloader and let it do its magic...
you should now have 4ext Touch Recovery instead of Clock Work Mod Recovery then you should be able to boot any ics rom...

also you should download an ICS rom before trying to boot your HTC
because i dont think that your phone will boot if it still has GingerBread

I am trying that now. Excuse the barrage of stupid questions that are about to follow in the next couple of posts from me. Should I put the zip straight on to the sd card or extract it to meta-inf then place it on?

Because if I let it do its thing as the zip it says the image can't be found when trying to load.

OK! So I have made progress. I figured the most important thing was to get a recovery mod installed. 
4EXTrecovery was the one to choose and so as suggested in xda I packaged my CID android-info (relevant to my device) and the recovery.img and packaged them up together, renaming them PG58IMG.zip

Now I finally have 4ext working and so I can move on from there.

Thanks for all your guys help so far. M07SxSLOW, extra kudos to you mate. Really appreciate it.
