I do not think you bricked it. You might have created a kernel panic that caused the system to halt. Nevertheless, if you can read the logs fully it will point to the sector that caused the issue in most cases you need the source code to remove the abnormality from becoming prevalent in major system releases.

Worst case scenario take legal action against the creator.

Can the system boot or show a bios splash screen upon powering it on?
