Default [Q] i flashed my galaxy s wrong! help please!

today i wanted to flash my galaxy s to ics.
my galaxy s was already rooted so i put the zip in the root of my phone.
so then i went to recovery mode and installed ics and im sure i followed every step in the tutorial. But when booting it didnt stop booting and it was like that for an hour. so then i tried to flash it back to the firmware i had before.
i tried to flash back to gingerbread with odin but now it cant boot beyond the galaxy s gt-19000 screen.
i tried to go to recovery mode but in recovery mode everywhere its saying
"E: unknown volume for path {/data}
E: unknown volume for path {/data}
E: Unable to process volume! Skipping..."
and so on...
please help me
the firmware i need ends with jvi thats all i remember...

You need to flash a rom stock using ODIN. If I understand correctly you must enable the option to re-partition so be sure to also include the .pit file when you will flash, then proceed to install ICS. It is recommended to remove the SD-EXT before starting to install because it can pass to enter a bootloop.
