    Depends whether it's soft-bricked or hard-bricked. If it turns on but "boot-loops" (meaning it shows the startup animation forever) it's fixable. If it won't even turn on, you're probably screwed.

    It boots to the logo and no further tried countless ways to "re-root" and even revert it back to its original software but no luck

    What phone do you have? Also, might be worth checking XDA, or failing that make a post on XDA.

    What steps did you take to root the phone?

    Usually you have to unlock the bootloader, install TWRP and flash the supersu zip from within TWRP.

    If you have TWRP installed you can boot into it by entering recovery mode.
