You may have damaged the HDD. Do you have another?

If you can get it back into safe mode, use option 5 (Restore PS3 System).  If the PS3 didn't repair the file system automatically when it booted the first time, then it wasn't likely that the restore file system command was going to work anyway, even if you hadn't interrupted it. If the Restore PS3 System command doesn't work, then you probably need a new hard drive.
