    Welcome to the forums!
    Can you reboot into recovery, or download mode?

    Ok, so you can't get into Download mode, and recovery? If that is true, you most likely bricked your device. You can try searching for a JTAG service or device, but there is no guarantee the service or device will get it fixed.

    Recovery mode is volume up, home and power.
