Root Galaxy Apollo Firmware Upgrade Problem

Hi,

I had a galaxy Apollo of 2 years. Today, I tried to update its firmware through KIES. After couple of minutes of downloading relevant files later, KIES hung. I woke up to find 98% downloading completed on my phone and KIES showing an error.

I touched the phone and it was too hot. Despite it showing a warning of NOT TURNING IT OFF, i had to switch off.

Since then, the phone hasn't responded. I tried going into recovery mode with power+vol down and home button, but it just won't get back.

I have downloaded Odin and relevant firmware from the Internet but that can only be forced into my phone IF it turns on! :( Please help.
