Talking [Q] Possibly bricked phone

Hi there fellow xda users!

Today my father decided it was finally the time to root and change his rom on his ascend p6 after seeing how flawless my note 3 with a custom rom runs.
So, the problem is the following: after he had rooted his phone with kingo root (if I recall) he tried to install cwm recovery using the app on the market. During the instalation, it stucked and went into a boot loop. I tried to put in download mode tho I am not sure if it has download mode and I've searched on the internet for it and didn't find anything. I have to mention the fact that I can get it into stock recovery but from that point I can not do anything. It will show "FAIL" as soon as the recovery starts.

Any way to fix this problem?
A fast response will be much appreciated, thanks for the assistance

Have you tried flashing new firmware?

If not:
Download an official firmware of choice(B125, B132 etc.) Put the dload folder in the root of a sdcard then hold power and both vol buttons to force firmware flash.

Btw: For (most) custom ROMs for the P6, you need to flash TWRP through adb :P
