    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

    rooted with ics 4.0.4. i unlocked boot loader then updated my phone to a legit 4.0.4 rom then flashed a pre-rooted kernel (not the rom just a .elf file) now its working smoothly.

    thanks for the help everyone.
