Remove the memory card of the phone and clean all applications, also do factory reset of phone. I think there is some application  flaw that makes it reboot everytime.

yes , i have tried PIT as well, but no success .
Can you send all files to Flash i.e (PIT, Phone, PDA, CSC, MOdem) with instructions

I have tried Flashing with I9003_XXKB1 andnow the phone started. its working properly.
Dont know what happen with other files.

But when i connect phone with Kies it not supporting update version. how do i update the version now.

JAN PAKULAICT Infranstructure ManagerCommented:
good - we getting somewhere:)

1 uninstall kies - restart pc -delete the Samsung folder in documents-and install kies - fresh install

2 Dial *#*#7284#*#* This will open up the Phone Util menu
Ensure PDA is selected for USB. If it already selected to PDA, try reselecting it by selecting Modem, then PDA, press the Back key, retry with Kies
