Default [Q] This is my build but can't get it past boot logo

This is my current build on SN2. Im on a stock rom but Ive rooted it. I want to upgrade to DN3 custom rom (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2541860) but i'm in a bit of a pickle.

in the instructions, it recommends you to have the Galaxy Note 2 N7105 MK5 kernel. Would i have to flash this kernel first? and then follow the instructions for I317M?

because i've done this before and was stuck at the Samsung boot logo. nothing worked so i had to wipe everything off the phone and start from scratch.

thanks in advance guys!
