Default Cant or dont know how to flash a kernel?

Hello everyone. I am new to the HTC One (m7wlv) but not new to htc or rooting/flashing etc. I am s-off and my bootloader is unlocked, and i am running the stock rom rooted and debloated. I want to get a custom kernel on here, but i cant seem to get any to stick. By that i mean i have tried several, and they all flash with no errors. But when i reboot, the kernel is still stock and unchanged. I have tried all three different recoveries, ive tried regular flashing and flashing with htc dumlock. What am i missing here? Can you not use a custom kernel with a stock rooted rom? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The rom is just the ota 2.10.605.1 that i rooted and debloated.

obone http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2539041, is the latest kernel ive tried. I tried a few others i found, but i cant remember which ones. Not to many kernels to choose from on sense 4.3. Any other kernels you know of that i could try?

Yes i was pretty active on the incredible. Unforrunatley it took a crap finally so i decided to go for the one. Thanks for replying.

You need an insecure Boot.img in your current rom, to allow it to be overwritten.
My Stock rom has an insecure Boot.img in it.
You could fastboot flash that Boot.Img and then flash the custom one.
You should be able to just fastboot flash the new kernel, if it is packed into a Boot.Img.(most custom kernels aren't)
If it's packed in Anykernel style, then you will have to repack it into a Boot.img from your rom, or do what I suggested above and then flash it.
Essentially you are on an unrooted, secure stock Boot.Img that will not allow for the kernel to be overwritten.
Chances are, that the modules did flash though and you probably ended up just breaking wifi...and maybe more.

Thanks again guys. I fastboot flashed the boot.img from your rom, and then the kernel and it worked. Time to tinker with some settings.
