Press and hold volume up and the power button until you get 3 vibrations, your phone is now switched off, now flash again

Don't panic, just flash a stock rom with flashtool, but flash it in flash mode, you haven't bricked your phone yet

You can get some stock roms from here

To add root you flash a custom kernel with fast boot.

I gave used XsX and Doomlord.
Doomlord was my first
