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?

com (folder)
org (folder)
CERT.RSA
CERT.SF
MAIFEST.MF
system(folder)

- - stk.apk

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 ! :)
