Notsure Galaxy Pop hard bricked (wrong kernel)

Hi everyone!

Here is the entire list of things I had done before I bricked it. Can some expert please read through and help me? I really need help!!

So as you can read from the title, this phone, the Galaxy Pop/Mini is bricked. It does not turn on at all, even if I press the power key only or the Power+home+vol.down. Needless to say, I have no download mode . The problem started after I flashed the PACman ROM, which didn't turn out that good, so I re-flashed the original firmware using ODIN. It said PASS, but then when it rebooted, the phone got a boot loop. It kept on rebooting again and again. As I have an Xperia Neo V as my primary device, this issue usually meant a wrong kernel to me. So I downloaded "Galpop_kernel_build2" and now when I press the power button or any of the combinations, the screen does not light up. There is no response.

So I tried the Heimdall One Click Unbrick, and it shows me this error:

Is Your Phone Plugged In?
Is It In Download/Softbrick Mode?
If the phone is Plugged In and Everything Is Fine,
Visit the Resolution Center in order to resolve the issue.

I think I might have flashed a Pop Plus S55700i kernel instead of a Pop S5570 one. SInce the kernel is ultimately the low level OS, maybe that is preventing the phone from starting up? It does not even light up!

I'm doomed! Can someone PLEASE HELP!!???
