Did you do the "fastboot flash boot boot.img" step like it says in the thread? Anyways, the ROM that you are using now is based on Cyanogenmod10. We have two kernels for that. Look in the index thread (link in my signature) for the two kernels. You can choose anyone you like.
Once you download the kernel, place it in C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools of your PC.
Then switch off your phone, remove the battery, put it back in.
Then hold volume-down and power button till the phone starts.
Connect your phone to the PC. Now it should say "FASTBOOT USB" on the screen
Open command window in your PC and navigate to the folder where you have pasted the kernel file.
Then type "fastboot flash boot boot.img" without quotes (and assuming that the file is called boot.img)
Then type "fastboot erase cache" then "fastboot reboot"
Then wait for some time.. It should start.

NO NO.. You're supposed to have Android SDK installed. What guide did you follow?

i followed loads of guides i unlocked the bootloader and then i installed cwm by munjeni using hasoon2000 all in one toolkit

would you be able to backup up your current system and send it to me so that i could restore it and hopefully my phone will work

The toolkit has an option to flash kernels. Follow the instructions there. And if you are using Darkbreed IV, use Prometheus or NOPE kernel

Ash, I think you need to erase the cache first.
Also Nope kernel doesn't work on sense roms.
Wipe the cache data and dalvik and try flashing the rom again with the correct kernel.
If it keeps getting stuck, try lower frequencies.
Before you do anything to your device, please read this topic so you get started on things.

Devices:
- Google Nexus 5
Kernel: Zeta-Chromium
ROM: Beanstalk 4.4+

- HTC Desire C
Kernel: N.O.P.E. V2.6 - 850 MHz
ROM: Stock CM10

My work:
NOPE-Kernel V2 For CM10

If you need to speak to me urgently or ask me any questions, please do so on My Facebook.
