You should be able to boot to recovery.. Hold home, vol up and power.

If that doesn't work you can try getting in download mode by holding home, vol down and power. Then you are able to flash an original Samsung rom.

If this all fails, then search on ebay for an usb jig. With this jig you can boot the phone in download mode.

Then I don't know what you've done, because hard bricking your SGS2 is not an easy job. Even when you install a faulty rom there's no way you hardbrick it. Maybe something went wrong in your rooting process..

I have been flashing roms on my SGS2 for about a year now. When I got stuck I always managed to return to original state using a jig, a Samsung rom and odin. Your problem is not in any way Miui related..
