Unhappy [Q] Help, Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 Bricked.

Okay so i have let this sit for a while now becuase i just said forget about it i will get a new one later in time. well i changed my mind. A while back i tried to root my Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 (Model: YP-Gl1CB/XAA) And (I believe this is what happened) I didn't pay attention to what i was doing and i believe i replaced the boot-loader with a WIFI backup? I know chances are i cannot fix this and its garbage now but i would like to give it one more shot. hopefully if i didn't explain something up here the pictures will help.
Note: I used these following threads to attempt the root - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1884071 (zebluk) - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5374&nocache=1 (alice90)

Screen-Shots:
Bricked

I also cannot connect it to my laptop, nor can i access download mode anymore. that is the only screen i have been able to access.
I know i didn't go into much detail. but if someone can help it would be much appreciated. also if anyone needs more detail i will be glad to add more.
EDIT: I have been able to get to the download mode main screen (press up to go into download mode or down to cancel and reboot.) but pressing up locks it up again.

Dude you if actually did that you replaced your bootloader files the core of download/odin mode so you cannot flash any rom or kernel to fix that but i have had a similar problem on my 4.2 use this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2308221 from an experienced gp dev to fix mine (read through the comments) (i never replaced my bootloader files so i cannot guarantee this fix just had the error screen )but if you actually replaced your bootloader files you may have a hard bricked player try a usb jig it may not do much but you never know
MY DEVICES-
Galaxy Player 3.6 (CM 11)
Galaxy Player 4.2 ( ChaOS v1.3 )
Xperia Play ( CM 10 )
