Generally speaking: Install bootloader only with Odin.

You should now flash firmware using Odin to save your device. Maybe Kies could restore also.

HERE you may find firmware for your country/device, download.
Start Odin, connect your phone in download mode to pc, see if Odin shows up com-port and flash firmware in tab PDA/AP.

There are several guides on youtube/google

Depends on your last firmware. What was the bootloader version? If above MJ5, you can't downgrade so you are free to flash eg latest 4.4.2

1. Never flash bootloader through recovery
2. I assume that you have had newer bootloader than MJ5 before flash, so you soft bricked your device
3. To regain full funtional device follow post #4
