That is a catch all error of thye underlying ifd-handler.  I have
never tried that board with the PCSC driver.  It works fine when using
the internal GnuPG driver.

I sorry, that you burned your card.  In general it is always advisable
to take some caution when using a new reader device.  And you should
always start with the regular PIN, this gives you more tries in case
something went wrong.  Using gpg with the option "--debug 2048" will
show details of the card communication.
