So I assume that you have your Bootloader unlocked and you want to flash a custom kernel.. The easiest way to flash a custom kernel is using Flashtool.

Download flashtool from here and install it.
Now you go to the Flashtool installation folder. There you open the drivers folder and install the drivers using the drivers installer.

Now you are ready to install a custom rom/kernel.
Quote
Let's start:
Quote
Now you have the the CUSTOM kernel:in form of a boot.img or a kernel.sin or a kernel.elf
You copy the Vengeance Kernel[kernel.elf] file to flashtool directory.
Disconnect Device & connect in fastboot mode. Ensure your Device is not in MTP Mode.
To move to fastboot mode; hold the volume up key and connect it to the computer. The blue LED will light up.
Now you launch flashtool & click on the flash then select fastboot mode...






Now there comes up the toolbox where you choose "select kernel to flash"



A new browser window will open and It will now ask to supply the recovery image path. Now browse to the kernel.elf (or the kernel.sin/boot.elf)that we copied to flashtool directory.
As you select and Execute; process will start and will flash new Kernel with dual Recovery on your device.
<End of Precedure>

MUST DO: USE setCPU (DOWNLOAD FROM HERE) and Tune up your CPU frequency to 800Mhz again other wise your device will be kept rebooting. This kernel resets CPU to 1Ghz frequency which seems to be incompatible at present. We requested the developer to Release the Update soon. As and when the update will come we will keep you informed.

PLEASE HELP! I JUST FLASHED AND IT WONT START!, HERE IS THE FLASHTOOL LOG :

Nothing seems wrong with your LOG
I am sure u carried the process nicely..

U said not started means what...Device is not Booting up or what ?

In case device is not booting up then you must roll-back to your Stock Kernel.

On the other hand U must use some CPU Frequency Tweaker to set CPU Frequency back to 800htz as its giving frequent Restarting issue and HEating too...

I request to visit the Developers Page if he has published any more update on the same...
Here is the XDA PAGE of RACHIT RAWAL related to this kernel:
