Default [q] help needed badly. Bricked (?) sp

Ok here's what happened. I was using existenz rom and tried to flash cm 11 using steps i found here. however, im pretty sure something went wrong and my sp wont turn on anymore. the screen just lights up (pure black, just backlight) at first. then i managed to get to sony logo. i flashed stock .254 ftf via flashtool and wiped data. now i cant get past sony logo anymore. im trying to repair via update service and i dont know what will happen. pls help me

You have unlocked your bootloader before you installed Cm11?

In recovery (if you can enter that) perform a wipe /system and flash again This should fix most bootup issues.

Yes via Flashtool.. After that you can (if you want) relock bootloader and restore TA partition to recieve the delayed update from Sony..
