I'm not sure if its just my phone, had this problem for a while now, but when it occurs, i usually just flash another rom, but basically, when it comes to my rom and flashing a rom that comes with a custom kernel, its a no go what so ever, its force close central, and boot loops and all that, no idea why, but my phone just simply doesn't play nice with any custom kernels at all, started with Jellybomb, use to love it, worked perfect, no problems, then when it updated to i believe 10, 11, not precise on what version, and he used a custom kernel, then bam, tried everything, no luck, and couldnt use that rom with my phone anymore, or any other rom that comes with custom kernels, and still cant, and i guess its time to mention it to verify if this happens to anyone else.

@ IonIcone, Keep the thread to the user that's asking the question.
Search the whole forum first / search it online, if it's a no go on both parts, then start a question
thread of your owns.

@ ParkourKid93
KernelCleaner can be downloaded here.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...5&d=1347395869
scripted by mattrb, you can thank him for that file.

When using kernels make sure it's for the right version
JB or AOSP. and also make sure its for the right version
4.1.x or 4.2.x

Usually when you're also installing a rom with a dif kernel ( and you CAME from a rom with STOCK kernel )
you'll need to wipe cache and dalvik cache, and re-set permissions via Custom Recovery.
If those don't work, search the original ROM thread for a [Q] of the same as yours and see if there was a fix / reply for that.

If all else fails, contact the dev of the rom with your specific issue.

I've been switching between kernels and JB versions and i've never ran into this issue. Anthrax, K747, Agat's and Stock Optimized.
Have you tried odin flash restore to stock LJ7 and re-installing the rom as well?

No problem bro, does sound like you flashed a wrong kernel for your phone, but like spark said, look around, their is a lot of topics on soft bricked phone, you will deffinatly find something on it

I actually tried that same exact kernel cleaner this morning, I searched and found it, had no luck with it though, and for the 'choosing the right kernel', it comes built in with the ROM, its the jelly bomb 14 ROM I'm referring to, also did wipe both caches and fixed permission, still no luck, I want to believe its my phone itself though, because I know it wouldn't be the ROM, I deff trust the ROM and developer obviously, and used his work before, but that's when he didn't use a custom kernel, but when he included the custom kernel built in, I believe jellybomb 10, or 11, then it was the last time I could of flashed any of his Roms, I do remember having similar problems with other Roms that uses custom kernels also, the only kernel my phone plays great with, is the stock optimized, and the cyanogenmon kernels, but ktoons and agats, and even anthrax (when I was using freeza fregs3, just went no go on my device
