I've solved it, My process was the following:

1) Reboot into an older kernel, remove the problematic kernel's individual packages as root with rpm -e --nodeps once per package (The removed packages were kernel, kernel-devel, kernel-headers, kernel-modules-extra).

2) Install a newer kernel (a debug one) from rawhide

3) Boot into the debug kernel

4) Ran a 'yum -y update kernel-* --enablerepo=updates-testing', This step updated the older kernel to the problematic one.

5) Install the problematic kernel's individual packages from "updates-testing" repo (in case something was missing. For example in this case, kernel-headers-3.11.x-xxx.fc19.x86_64 did not installed with the update).

6) Remove Rawhide's kernel individual packages and reboot.

7) Booting in the previously problematic kernel (which now works!) And cleaning up the system with:

su -
yum-complete-transaction --cleanup-only
package-cleanup --orphans
package-cleanup --cleandupes
yum repolist
yum clean all
yum makecache
yum -y update

And that's all, now my computer is hapilly booting with 3.11.1-200.fc19.x86_64 I hope this helps anyone who stumbles upon this issue ;)
