Default [Q] My phone was bricked after applying tweaks

I have this Galaxy Grand Quattro for almost a month now. I was fascinated by this "rooting" thing and was able to successfully root my phone via framaroot. Rooted apps are really awesome so I installed tons of them into my phone. I downloaded and installed Pimp my ROM and Andromizer but I was not able to use them until last night. I applied almost all tweaks found in the Andromizer first then with the Pimp my ROM. I was asked to reboot my phone but it did not boot back to normal state. It only booted until the phone details screen then the screen went blank. This is the case til now. Now I don't know what to do and where to start. I've tried booting to recovery mode by pressing and holding different combinations of the power, volume and menu buttons. But I cannot enter this so called recovery mode. How can this be fixed?

I know it's my bad. I didn't know what I was doing last night.

Your help will be very much appreciated.

Before you do all tweaks have you flash cwm and do a nandroid backup?

What are the specific tools that I need? I've already downloaded Odin 3.07 and 3.09 and the MSMx27 driver. Where can I find those firmware? Thanks mate!
