You didn't say why you needed to root your phone, but I would suggest not doing anything until you completely understand what you're doing.
As you found out first hand, it doesn't take much to brick a device. So I think your first order of business is to do a whole lot of reading in the link that Digital controller provided you.
After that, I would figure out how to completely backup my phone and understand the process to recover it if something should happen again.
