Root Cannot get Apex 2.0 GB to work

I have been back and forth between froyo and GB in the past month or two and decided to upgrade back to GB last night if I could find an AOSP looking rom. I found Apex 2.0 and attempted to follow the instructions and install the rom, but got caught in a boot loop and had to sbf. Heres what I did:

1. Installed GXbrooted (I believe its .573) with the intention of updated the kernal with the provided Apex kernal updater.
2) Booted into recovery and installed Apex part 1 first then the Kernal updater
3) rebooted, and got stuck in a boot loop

The steps I took seem to be exactly what the instructions said. Im not sure if the kernal update only updates from .588 to .591, but I just figured it would work for an older version too. Anyone know what I may have done wrong? Id love to be on GB again but I want AOSP. Thanks
