No power

I have an 86 bronco. I was trying to jump the battery and smoke poured from my solenoid area. After it threw sparks and smoked I realized that the positive battery cable was black and the negative was red. So I fried something, but have no idea what. Now I don't have any electric power at all. The only reaction I get from the battery is if i jump the solenoid. Otherwise I have absolutely nothing. Has anyone done this or know exactly what I could look at?? Thanx for all the help

Re: No power

I didn't pay attention to detail and I hooked up the jumper cables backwards. Is it true that if jumping the solenoid will crank the motor than the solenoid is still good??
