[Q] Have I Bricked My Phone?

Hi guys,

I'm very new to this- rooted my xperia arc s last year and installed cyanogen and since then haven't done anything as it worked perfectly! Went to install a new ROM this morning and made a rather stupid mistake!

Was planning to install slim bean

this one:

I hadnt flashed the new kernel, but booted in safe mode and got to step 8 (had wiped cache, dalvik cache, formatted system).

I then realised that the kernel and slim bean files that I was going to flash were no longer on the SD card as I had formatted it before booting in recovery mode.

Not really thinking, I exited recovery mode.

Now my phone won't boot (system is formatted as per step 8 in link above). I can't flash anything to it with fastboot (as far as I know) as it won't recognise my phone as a device.
The sony logo appears, and nothing else. Won't boot into recovery.

As I said, I'm quite new to this, but is there anything I can do to save the phone?

xperia arc s (lt18i)
android 4.0.4

Any help is greatly appreciated.
