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

    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.
