Default [Q] Help please - bricked I8190N

Hello there I'm after some assistance please.

I flashed the new 'Virginity' rom onto my 'N' model S3 mini after reading a post in the thread which reported it working on this model. Upon reboot I seem to be caught in a bootloop with 'S3 mini' logo appearing time after time. The same thing happens when I try to reboot into recovery using the three button combo (which normally works on my phone). I presume that this is what is meant by 'bricking' as it has never happened to me before.

I have nandroid backups on my SD card, so I am hoping someone could suggest a way to boot to recovery so that I can restore one of these backups.

Alternatively, is there another course of action I could take? I have read the stickied guide in the General section and am currently downloading stock firmware from Sammobile. I am hoping that restoring a nandroid would be a more straightforward method.

Thanks in advance!

OK my crisis is over now - I followed the method prescribed in the guide and now all is well.

It was very straightforward actually.
