Default [Q] Boot loop to ClockworkMod Recovery. Possible brick?

I think I did something stupid.

I wanted to install a new ROM (OmniROM) and wanted a fresh device.
So I went into ClockworkMod Recovery v6.0.2.2 and went to the "Mounts and Storage" menu.
Here I did a format of all the storage available (except /external_sd)
To sum it up:
- format /cache
- format /system
- format /data
- format /preload
- format /sdcard
- format /data and /data/media

After this I went on and tried to install OmniRom. But I receive an "Installation aborted" error.

When I try to reboot the device it tells me:
Root access possibly lost. Fix? THIS CAN NOT BE ONDONE.
- No
- Yes - Fix root (/system/xbin/su)
- +++++Go Back+++++

I tried installing an other ROM (ArchiDroid 2.3) This installation process starts and I get through the wizard.
But the device keeps booting to ClockworkMod Recovery..


I'm having the feeling I ****ed up and deleted some necessary system files.
Is there a way to fix this brick?
I appreciate any help!

Managed to fix it.
I still had a full CWM backup from when I first rooted the phone. (1,5 year ago)
It was like a trip back in time
