I think you can get them if you install stock recovery.

It has been rumored that Samsung will not warrant the device if it is bricked but if the power button breaks they would most likely repair it.

Rooting device
Hi
I dont know what really happen to your device but here some things that might help.

1. Get the latest twrp zipfile should be 2.6.3
2. Unpack in a New directory on your PC - in this directory should be 2 files - one ODIN and one TWRP
3. Use the ODIn in that new directory only this Odin version will work.
4 load the TWRP file into ODIN
5 The only Oding Setting which should be changed is the Auto Re-Boot Option switch it off.
6 Than start the Load Process be patient can Take up to 6 Min.

This works i did it myself if any further question feel free to ask - ih this has helped a thanks would be nice-

Good Luck

Nope. Twrp never actually installed using gooim. I used Odin instead
