Hello XDA.. my first time rooting and I think i bricked my new Galaxy Tab S 8.4

I followed the guide here:

I booted my tab S into download mode, clicked volume up, then clicked AP on Odin 3.09 and chose the "CF_AutoRoot_Port_T700_BeansTown106.tar" file. The tab then went into ODIN MODE and says "Downloading... Do not turn off target !!"
I then clicked Start on Odin and it said something along the lines All threads complete.

But after 15 minutes my Tab is still in the exact same screen as described after clicking volume up. Now I have deplugged the USB cable and the Tab is frozen in this screen. I've tried a lot of combinations to try and restart my Tab but nothing works...

combinations I tried: volume up + power + home / volume up + power / power / volume down + power + home / volume down + power (all for around 15~30 seconds)

I'm quite sad, I don't know what I did wrong, the steps were quite unclear in the guide since it assumes everyone to be an expert in rooting, and if rooting is supposed to be this difficult, then I will stay away from rooting if I can ever fix my Tab.

Does anyone know how to save my Tab?

edit: here's a pic of my tab:
