Exclamation HELP: soft brick after failed flash

Hi guys,

That is the situation: i was running Purity ROM + ART on my new Nexus 10. I've got the lastest TWRP installed.
Few minutes ago I've decided to flash KT Manta, in order to make some undervolt... but something went wrong...
The flash seems to have been successful, but later, during the chace wipe, the device suddenly turned off. I tried to turn it on, but I was stuck at the loading screen of the rom.
Then I went into recovery, I've tried to wipe chace again, but TWRP fails, and is one of the messages of error "unable to mount /chace."
Fortunately, before flash the kernel, I did a nandroid backup (of evrything except cache, unchecked by default). The restore seems to be successful (success, 135sec time), but I'm still stucked on Purity Loading screen.

So THAT is what can I do:
1 - I can enter fastboot menu
2 - I can enter recovery
3 - My tablet charges normally

But I can not load the ROM. Seems to be a soft brick, but I need your help. Pls: ((

Just flash the factory image. This will wipe the entire device. If you want to backup anything just adb pull fron recovery..

Woooh i've finally solved it
That's what I've done:
1- Turned off the device for a while
2- Made a factory reset
3- Wiped Chace ---> no errors this time!
4- Wiped Dalvik chace --> no errors here too!
5- Restored the nandroid Backup
