Unhappy My Ace II dead after stock upgrade

I can't startup again my Ace II when I updated to latest stock firmware downloaded from Samfirmware.com, it is from BTU region: I8160XXLK5_I8160BTULK5_BTU.zip.

What do you think I could do? It doesn't start nor pressing ON/OFF nor any other normal boot procedures. I removed battery, wait some minutes, nothing happens

Any suggestion?

Go to recovery, try to factory reset.

try
1- remove sd card and sim card and battery
2- hold power button + home + vol down
3- while holding power button + home + vol down insert battery
4- it should boot if not ---------> go to service center and remember don't tell them that your are rooted, custom rom ... say i was playing nfs shift when the phone turned off
Sorry for my bad English

I tried to start pressing Vol-Down + Home + Power without SIM nor uSD cards but didn't started up. I will go to service center and tell exactly that stop working without any reason.

Thanks

So since I found this thread I'm going to ask here, is there any difference in the regions of all these firmwares? I mean...a difference between the German firmware and the Russia firmwares are what? The language? The carrier the firmware can support? and Lastly, what if I (who lives in Greece) install a The last German or Russian or whichever firmware?
