Another way. It's been awhile since I used SlimKat but I think it was in Settings > Security and look for advanced reboot. Then when you hold down the power button and tell the phone to reboot, it will give you a few options, one of which is for recovery.

From there you'll probably be able to reset your phone to factory defaults to make the phone bootable again. This probably means losing all user data stored on the phone. If a factory reset does not ...
