It appears like you have downloaded a kernel compiled for the International Samsung version (i9300) while your phone is an American version.
If you have a custom recovery installed, then take out your sd-card from the phone, and copy a ROM into it via desktop/laptop. Put the sd-card back into the phone and boot into recovery mode. Install the ROM from the folder in the sd-card.
hello and thank so much for replying back to me! I do not own an sd card, will i need for restoring everything back? my phone is able to go to into recovery mode and download mode. i don't necessarily need everything back to default, i would like a working phone.
