You didn't follow the instructions. First question, are you rooted?

It looks like your attempt to flash CWM did nothing.

If you didn't root yourself, superuser means nothing. Install this

Sorry, but I don't use that phone, so I have no idea what ROM to use. I also avoid giving people the gun to shoot themselves (encouraging hacking without knowledge to back it up), so I'm not going to suggest anything.

What I will do is suggest you read, read, and read some more about what you want to do. Here is a link to the XDA tutorials for your specific device. It also includes how to un-brick your device. Read this, and if/when you're comfortable flashing a ROM, you have the resources to do it.

Not a problem, it's my pleasure.

A 'brick' is when your phone becomes worthless and won't boot up. Basically, a paper weight. Being able to reverse that problem is called unbricking. Always good to know how to fix things before they break.
