Instructions are provided in most rom and kernel threads.

You need to use fastboot commands from your pc, for example:

fastboot flash boot what_ever_your_file_is_named.img

put the boot.img in the same folder your fastboot files are on your pc, then boot into your bootloader on your phone.
pick fastboot, connect your usb so it becomes fastboot usb
in the cmd prompt on your pc type fastboot flash boot boot.img

or download this program http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1634786 (courtesy of team hex)
put your boot.img in the boot.img folder
put your phone into fastboot usb
then run the program and pick flash boot.img

If you don't get it then you shouldn't have unlocked the phone in the first plce until you read up on adb/fastboot

This.

I wish more people would actually read and understand what they're doing before they start doing it. If you unlock/root your phone you NEED to know how to restore any changes you make, this usually means you need to know how to use ADB, the Recovery console and the Bootloader (the bare minimum of things you need to know).
If you don't know how to use any of these things stop whatever it is you're doing. It most likely wont end well.

You should really read up on things. Until we get soff you won't be able to flash kernels etc through cwm. Regarding adb and fastboot try reading this http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/...ll-it-android/.
