Question Rooting GT-I9000 reboot loop help

Yes, I know there are a lot of these posts here most likely.

The thing is I don't know which remedy I should follow to resolve this situation as many of them seem to expect that the device is rooted already. Or people are in a boot loop after previously rooting it, and upgrading from a previous custom firmware. My device is stock never rooted.

What I have done is follow the steps in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1852546

I followed these only to the end of the first section to root the deivce. I am running a GT-I9000.

The first time I ran Odin it gave me an unable to open serial port error. I rebooted the phone and this time it worked giving me a pass green box in the top right.

Since then, the phone boots to the samsung splash screen and immediately reboots in a cycle. I can get to the download page again, and can get to the recovery page again but am unable to get it out of the boot loop.

I used the Semaphore_2.7.4.tar linked to in the guide, and installed the samsung usb drivers prior to running anything. I am using windows 8 for this.

So my question is what do I need to do from here?

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Its likely you had a froyo ROM and you flashed a gingerbread kernel and booting the phone, so you can follow [Tutorial] How to Unbrick, Flash, Downgrade, Root, Update i9000 from Froyo to Kit Kat and flash the ICS ROM or Gingerbread ROM to get your phone booting.
