So you are stuck in bootloop.
1. You can try this:
Fix Android Boot loop issues on Stock Android
Step 1. Remove the battery from the device and wait for 30 seconds and then put the battery again on your device. If your phone doesn’t has the remove bale battery like Nexus 4, then power down the phone and keep it powered off for 5 minutes. This will turn off your device permanently.
Step 2. After that Boot your device in to Recovey Mode. Samsung Users use Volume Up+ Home + Power keys. If you have the other Android device then do a Google search how to enter in recovery mode.
Step 3. Once your android device is in Recovery Mode, Go to the “wipe cache partition” option and select it.
Step 4. After that go back to the recovery main menu and reboot the device by “reboot system now” option.
Step 5. If the device again stuck on Android Boot Loop pull out the battery again and repeat the above steps. This time also “wipe data/factory reset” and then reboot device.
Now your device will come out of the Android Boot Loop and at the first time the device will take some time to reboot.

Step 1. Follow the Above guide (Fix Android Boot loop issues on Stock Android) Step 1 and Step 2 on your device.
Step 2. Once your Rooted device on recovery mode, go to the Go to “Advanced” and Choose “Wipe dalvik-cache”. After that go to “Mounts & Storage” and choose “Wipe /cache”. In the end go to the main menu of recovery and Reboot your phone.

Try to find stock ROM from h t t p://samsung-updates.com/ (select device from left top corner)
and flash it with ODIN.
