You dont have to buy a new phone! Flash the original stock firmware using odin.. follow this guide by marcussmith2626.

After I post this thread I rebooted my phone and suddenly i work (with android 4.4 layout which i have installed earlier and bricked my phone). But when i put SIM card in it, it can't startup, stuck at the welcome and keep rebooting. What should i do? Flash the original stock firmware?

so you are stuck on bootloop.. what rom are you on ?.. it can be a kernel problem too, so give some more details
