    Hello!

    I tried to flash a custom .zip and it uninstalled without giving errors. After that, I tried rebooting my phone but it won't reboot - it's stuck in the bootlogo screen.

    I cannot get the phone into recovery/any other mode with any key combination.

    Did I just brick my phone?

    Android: Paranoid Android 4.4.42
    Phone model: Galaxy S3 i9300

    CERT.RSA
    CERT.SF
    MAIFEST.MF
    system(folder)
    - app
    - - stk.apk
    - - stk.odex

    Basically, I tried to flash SIM toolkit for my paranoid android.

    Well, I am afraid but yes you have bricked your device ! I would say now you may need to flash the ROM again over to your device by using a little help from the ODIN as well as the getting the stock ROM from the sammobile/firmware section which I am sure you are aware of ! :)
