Default [Q] Boot problem with SGS I9000

I simply checked my phone to see it's off. It was a regular view, as before on the nightly of CM11 I had that all the time. The thing is, I am with CM10.2 and with a CM kernel now, as 11 wasn't stable. Anyway, when I started the phone it showed me the regular I9000 and Galaxy S boot image, and the second (I think) it tried to boot the kernel, it just went completely off. This repeats whenever I try to boot it. I haven't tried anything but going to recovery, which obviously didn't work and trying to go into Download mode. Whatever the solution is, I don't want to factory reset it by some way, but it's okay if there is no solution.
Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately your device could have been soft-bricked.

This guide might help you: [GUIDE][UNBRICK] Downgrade-Upgrade across ROMs [i9000][VIDEO]

When flashing, make sure you have a good data cable, both your laptop and phone are fully charge and nothing would interrupt the download progress.
