You must put kernel.elf in the folder where do you have the sdk of Android ( and so also fastboot.exe). Then you connect the XU on fastboot mode to the Pc and open a prompt-Windows command in the folder where do you have kernel.elf. On the Windows command write this: " fastboot.exe flash boot kernel.elf" Wait until all is done et voilà :)

When i go into fastboot mode and click on "Select Kernel to Flash", I am not able to see the Kernel with extension .elf. Can somebody help me please? My version of flashtool is 0.5.0.0

Do one thing change that name of file to something simple I.e. Kernel.elf

The main problem is you are typing the wrong command
If your kernel name is kernel.elf
Then the command to type is

fastboot flash boot kernel.elf

And then press enter....
