Help!

I rooted succesfully and used the phone for a day.
today i did this step

"Then search for this folder and file if you have opened Bing at any point
/data/app/com.microsoft.mobileexperiences.bing.apk and rename to com.microsoft.mobileexperiences.bing.apk.old"

When i rebooted, it gives me "emergency call only" and a place to put in a password....HELP!!!

Ok, i just figured out i kinda bricked my phone. Strange. If i reboot, i get a locked screen with emergecy call button and a place to put a password, (i have 4 attempts left)....
BUT IF I click the emergency call button, i can then access my homes and make calls and the phone works like normal... (and the bing search is gone!!!)

LOL...but everytime i restart i have to go through the emergency call first! I wonder what would happen if i ran out of password attempts?

Any Feedback?

Plus 1 with restoring a backup through recovery if you made one. If not, wipe/factory reset while in recovery. That should help you.
