So I went to android.madaco and used their online kitchen to download a custom rom for my desire z. I have also done this for my nexus s and it worked great. However when I installed the rom on my desire z it froze for 2 days. I finally pulled the battery and now it won't boot. When I first turn it on I get the white HTC screen forever. So I pull the battery and turn it on again while holding the volume down button. I have tried both factory reset and recovery. When I hit either of these it takes me to a clockworkmod recovery v3.0.2.4 screen. I get several choices here. Apply update from sd card, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, install zip from sd card, backup and restore, mounts and storage, advanced and power off. So I tried to install zip from sd card and it does nothing at all it just shows me the clockworkmod symbol and freezes forever. I also pulled the sd card and formatted it and put only the rom on it and it does nothing any different.

Did you ever solve this? It should be easy to solve as you can get to recovery.

I tried to go to recovery but it doesn't seem to work. It just hangs for hours and hours and even up to 36 hours then I do a battery pull and the samething happens all over again. It seems that somehow the data on the actual phone is corrupt.
