Unhappy [q] help i messed up big time

Help!

I have 2.2 on Rogers, rooted. I also have Cognition 3.04 installed as well as CWM. I tried to install a battery mod .zip file using CWM, but all that is happening now is that I am stuck on the startup screen (Cognition) and my Captivate just vibrates! In recovery using CWM 'reboot now' and 'reboot recovery' doesn't work. Is there anyway to 'bypass' my last (failed) installed .zip and go back to the home screen?

WHAT DO I DO? I have tried to use the recovery_update.zip file from CWM to get my phone working again but still no luck.

I SWEAR IF SOMEONE CAN HELP ME I WILL NEVER EVER TAMPER WITH MY PHONE AGAIN EVER. I WILL ONLY EVER USE IT FOR PHONE CALLS AND TEXTING. I WILL DO ANYTHING. PLEASE HELP!!!!

If you can get back into recovery which it sound like you can just reflash the original rom zip.

Sent from my SGH-T959 using XDA App

Edit....and calm down, just a boot loop from a bad flash, no biggie. Though you should understand how to recover before you start.

read the first sticky post in this Q & A section (question 3)... meanwhile, please let me know your build number. it is a 4 digit under your battery, looks like 1008, 1010, etc.
