today I tried to install the new cyanogenmod 11.0 rom on my ace II (I8160), but I ended up bricking it.

At first I rooted it and it still worked ok, then I installed a custom recovery and used it to install this rom: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2555021 . It worked but I wasn't able to make or receive phone calls. So next I tried to go back to stock by using odin to flash the original rom (I8160XXLH3_I8160OXXLH2_ITV, which should be italian gb) but now the phone won't boot anymore.

Currently, I can still get the phone to boot in odin mode and I can flash any stock rom, but I can't boot it in recovery mode or in normal mode. When I try to do so, the phone just stops at the screen with "Samsung GALAXY Ace 2 GT-I8160" written on it.

Do you know a way to get it to boot normally or should I just buy a new phone?

Nevermind I fixed it by installing the following files via odin:
PIT: GT-I8160_EUR_XX_4G.pit
AP: CODE_I8160XXMB4.tar

and then installing a stock 4.1.2 rom
