Download the full ML2 Odin, check the MD5 to make sure you didn't get a corrupted download. MAKE SURE all the files are in the right place in Odin and flash away. It should put the stock firmware back on the phone. Then you can proceed from there.

The MD5 is sort of like the fingerprint for the file, so you need the MD5 of the file you downloaded to match the MD5 that was posted in the thread. Download WinMD5Sum from the website here. Under File Name load the ML2 Odin zip package that you downloaded. WinMD5Sum will generate the MD5 of the file you downloaded and you can compare that to the MD5 the uploader posted in the thread. If the MD5's match then that means you downloaded exactly what was posted. If the MD5's don't match exactly, then you have a corrupted download and need to download it again.
