Hi, I did all the steps of rooting, & the Odin said pass but when I turned it on, its stuck on the "powered by android" screen.

But I still can go into download mode but not to recovery mode. Is this softbrick or hardbrick? Do I need to take it to the service center or download the stock firmware?
