Default Desire X Dead

I flashed a kernel using this app:
My phone was rooted, s-off and running vimiro rom.

Now my desire x wont boot, or go to recovery, its just stuck.
Tried flashing kernel again via fastboot, flashed. Still nothing.

What should I do now this is ****ed up.

try flashing an RUU....

If you can't do that, put necessary flash files to sdcard, then boot to HBOOT... HBOOT should flash those files for you hopefully....

Where all can you go?
Recovery? Emergency/download mode? Or anything else?

Yeah. If you still can access fastboot, first flash a working recovery (best choice now seems to be the TWRP from InfinityShooter). Then you can reflash Vimiro ROM from there.
