    Boot back into recovery and flash a previous Rom

    Make sure you wipe data when switching roms too. And ALWAYS make a backup :)

    You're not bricked...just in a boot loop. Like the others said try booting into recovery then wipe data and cache then reflash the ROM that should fix the problem.

    And yes ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP

    Hold X while you turn on your phone, goes into SPRecovery, if you have that installed, then install a previous rom.
    Not quite sure the options in the menu, but one says backup or restore or something of that sort, pick a previous rom, if not there's another way to reboot to stock, have to look it up for ya real quick.

    There's a post that explains how verizon fixes your phone for you.

    Don't mess it up or it might completely brick, however I've done it several times and it's pretty much impossible to mess up unless while the process is running you pick up your phone, throw it against a wall and then smash your computer with a sledgehammer, or something like that.
