No, you probably haven't. just follow the defy unbrick guide - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1828639
I have sucessfully rooted and installed CM11 on my old Defy yesterday, following the guide on the first page.
Had a couple of problems (bloated phone w/ android 2.2, perhaps I should have done a wipe before rooting it), SuperSU kept stopping after boot and after any app asking for root, so I had to give permissions to them manually in SuperSU, I had to install 2ndinit v. 1.4.2, and my blue LED never lit up, phone entered recovery after every boot.
After flashing TWRP the phone just showed the M logo and then black screen, no blue LED... but I have still managed to enter boot menu after pressing repeteadly the vloume down key when the M logo was on screen.
Had to try some 10 times before getting it right, but it appeared that to flash a SBF I would have to install windows first
- as I've found out now, it should be easier than in windows http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=13730405
The recommended version of TWRP ( 18.104.22.168) can flash up to 10 zip files at once, I've put all the 3 files in the queue and I wiped dalvik cache before rebooting.
Basically I think you did everything almost right, except that when already in the boot menu you should have flashed TWRP, reboot, "safewipe.zip", the CM11 zip and the gapps zip.\
Good luck with unbricking!
And many thanks to Proverbs2 for putting together this very complete guide!
