More information is needed for people to help you.. What did you do exactly (how you tried to install etc) and what are the symptoms.

I tried flashing a kernel through CWM running on JB 4.3 stocked rooted, just got the phone a week ago. Nothing will work, no recovery, no download, I tried using Win32 disk img flasher, didn't work.

Without download mode you will need a usb jig or jtag. Sounds like you probably flashed the wrong file to get that effect, in which case you do have a hard brick.
