Default [Q] Did I just brick my phone? (Galaxy S3 | PA 4.4.42)

Hello!

I tried to flash a custom .zip and it uninstalled without giving errors. After that, I tried rebooting my phone but it won't reboot - it's stuck in the bootlogo screen.

I cannot get the phone into recovery/any other mode with any key combination.

Did I just brick my phone?

Android: Paranoid Android 4.4.42
Phone model: Galaxy S3 i9300

I've attached the .zip I installed.

META-INF (paranoid android's meta-inf)
com (folder)
org (folder)
CERT.RSA
CERT.SF
MAIFEST.MF
system(folder)
- app
- - stk.apk
- - stk.odex

Basically, I tried to flash SIM toolkit for my paranoid android.

Hi,

It can't be really bricked. I would try to boot into download mode and flash the stock firmware via odin. This always work!
