Exclamation LG L70 "bricked" by switching runtime to ART

I switched from Dalvik to ART, just to see how it will work, and it completely broke my phone. When I boot, every app crashes, including com.android.systemui, and I cant reach options so I can switch it back. I don't have a backup or anything so I am not sure how will I be able to get everything back to normal, since hard reset didn't work. Can anyone help me?

Edit: Well it seems that I didn't do the hard reset correctly. I did it how its supposed to and now it works.

You should have used my Switch_D2ART (link in my signature). It enables/disables ART from recovery. This would have saved your phone from hard reset.

Press Thanks if helped.
