Here's my problem:

I have a Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000M that keeps rebooting after trying to install a custom recovery so that I can root it.

What I did

I followed the steps (1 to 11), of Installing a custom recovery on Galaxy S mentioned in the following page:

wiki,cyanogenmod,org/w/Install_CM_for_galaxysmtd

After that, I simply unplugged the usb, there were no errors, and removed the battery and now what I get is the simply that my device reboots after the boot logo. IF I hold down volume + home + power I can boot in download mode. However, I cannot boot in recovery or in normal mode !

Here's a video of what it is doing youtube,com/watch?v=Wie9eZYyECw

What I have tried

Removing the battery and reboot the cellphone
I tried to redo step 7, heimdall flash --kernel zImage --no-reboot, but I still got the same error

If that doesn't work, can I return to the default recovery (if that exist) and if yes, how can I do that ?

Ok ok. I have two questions for that, first, do you know where I can find the stock rom. And secondly, can I do that via download mode since it is the only thing I can access ?
