Hard bricking happen when you do something stupid. Also in general there is a Thread How NOT Brick your Phone. Anyway, to get root you have to downgrade again to .534, I recommend to root with Bin4ry, then update directly to .136 with instructions given by NUT Here. You cannot keep root updating system via OTA, you will lose everything.
