Default [Q] Stuck at this device is unlocked screen

Looked around a lot and found no solution so here it goes.

I was trying to update to KitKat and at the Pwr Volume- screen I mistakingly hit the wipe data. I wasn't on a custom ROM before, I used the clockwork mod app to install TWRP. Now I'm stuck on the screen where it says This Device is Unlocked and won't do anything else. I've tried every restart button combo but it always goes back to that screen. Can anyone help me out please or is this a lost cause.

Also the computer does not recognize it since it won't get past the opening screen and fastboot/adb wont do anything either

Wipe data in bootloader mode when unlocked = bricked for good unless you have nvflash backups

Or, if you can get back into bootloader mode, follow busters method to unbrick

Don't have NVFlash backups and I cant get to the boot loader so I guess I'm boned. Was good while it lasted, was running slow towards the end so I guess it was about that time lol
