Service Help, Unable to flash kernel

Hi,

I have a issue that im not used to... i recently got a Nexus 5, and first thing i did was to unlock, root and install aokp rom(nightly)

Then i wanted to install Franco Kernel, using Francos own app to try flash... the device reboots, and are stuck on the google logo.
Have no other choice to enter fastboot mode, and reflash rom(to have it overwrite the kernel), and it starts up again.

Then tried to download kernel zip and flash it in TWRP instead, but with the same result. Also tried changeing to CWM but it doesnt work with encrypted devices.

I have always used AOKP + Franco Kernel on my older devices, but now it seems impossible.

I dont know why it doesnt work, but i have some ideas, and hope someone can put me in the right direction.

1. My device is encrypted and that makes it fail.
2. AOKP lastest nightly rom is not compatible with Franco Kernel or vice versa.
3. Something is broken...

Regards
Ranarn

aokp is cm based(CAF) i believe, which would make it incompatible with any aosp kernels.

Ah that makes sense, but i guess something have changed then, since i have AOKP + Franco running on 2 older devices.

I know chaos kernel is CAF supported, I would give that a shot. I am still running 9.1 and it works the way I want it to for me (before they went CAF).
