    Does the phone boot up all of the way or does it keep repeating the flash screen? Did you wipe data, cache and dalvik prior to flashing?

    Welp thats your problem. Yes you do need to wipe. When flashing a rom you always need to wipe data, cache and dalvik. When flashing a kernel you only need to wipe cache and dalvik. Reboot into recovery and wipe all 3 then reflash the rom and you'll be food to go.

    As in takeout? :p (Sorry, that typo made me laugh).

    Anyway, this is correct. I hope you made a nandroid backup first.
