    that's not bricked
    bricked means it won't boot

    do you have a backup? just restore to that if you can.

    As digitalslacker said... worst case is you have a softbrick -- easily fixable, don't panic!! Hopefully you made a backup and can just boot into recovery and restore that?

    If not, might have to check my guide for restoring the factory images... its not hard at all and will get you right back to stock condition. For the future, always make a backup before tinkering with stuff

    Let me know if you need help!

    Is there a way to back it up while soft bricked?

    ADB backup/restore might work for that if you have adb access
    never tried it though

    Soft bricked has come to mean a number of things. People use the term so loosely now that it can even mean a boot loop.

    Easy enough to check, get into the bootloader and try adb devices and see if it's listed.

    As far as I remember using the images will completely wipe everything on the device. Just like it came outa the box.

    If you can find the stock kernel you can probably just flash it with adb.

    So there are three ways to fix it.

    If you can get into recovery CWM or TWRP and you can find a flashable zip of the recovery you can just flash it and you'll be good. I think it's located here but I haven't tried it so i don't want to say for certain.

    Or, If you are also running a custom ROM with your custom kernel that isn't working you can just reflash the ROM zip file in CWM or TWRP as it will have it's own kernel that it'll flash over the broken one.

    Lastly, if you have the stock kernel in image format (.img) you can flash it with ADB from your computer. You'll need ADB access setup, you'll need to put the phone in bootloader mode and use the command fastboot flash boot <image name>.img

    There are plenty of guides around on this one.

    If you give me more info on how you are setup I could suggest an option.
