Well when you do, remove your SD card first. I'm almost positive you 
would have at least been able to boot otherwise.

When you have it booting with no SD card, then try adding the card etc.

 From what you have said, it sounds like Qi is having issues probing the 
SD card and isn't moving on to the flashed kernel. This is one reason I 
don't use Qi. I can't quite get the timing right for skipping partitions 
  and nearly always forget to even try.

My problem can be fixed with a few text files though :)
