Default Did I brick this phone?

So today I was very foolish and formatted the System folder on an HTC Vivid that had cm-10-20131006-NIGHTLY-holiday installed. Needless to say, I no longer had an operating system . . .

I am still able to go into Recovery (TWRP), and I have successfully reflashed the build of Cyanogenmod. However, after booting, it is always stuck on the loading screen. I do not (and apparently cannot) have USB debugging enabled, so using fastboot or developer tools is out of the question.

What to do? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

. . . the old ROM? Every time I flash a ROM the operating system becomes stuck on the "Cyanogenmod" loading screen.

Please help.

Maybe your CM is stable insufficiently.
Try an more stable ROM.
I was used to use an HTC phone which had this problem.

I had a bricked HTC Velocity 4G and fortunately TWRP was still functioning from the Factory Reset Choice of my Boot List. So I tried many, one, the most sucessful, and gave me back full operation except WiFi, was: HOLICS_1.3_official_en_release.zip. it's link is available from this website if you read the forum on HTC Vivid/Raider/Velocity.
I am going to try and get my WiFi working with an Add-In before I completely forget that one? Good luck Amigo. Happy Flashing
