Exclamation [Q] Phone will not unlock bootloader

A few issues, Phone will not actually unlock bootloader even though both windroid and all in one says the token flash was successful. I even tried doing it though fastboot. I've re submitted keys three times through the dev site so can't imagine it's not right.

I do suspect that the firmware is corrupt as it won't boot into android and none of the bootloader options work. If i select recover or factory reset or whichever it just vibrates and goe back to fastboot screen.

I have a stock rom that it loads up but fails all but one file when updating. Didn't think bootloader needed to be unlocked to use a stock rom so don't know why that is happening. Phone did boot up once the other day after constantly trying to load up a diff rom but only stayed on for 15-20 min before it locked up and restarted back in fastboot screen. Wtf is wrong with this thing? I should mention it did this randomly from the start.

Sounds like a bad emmc/memory chip. A good test is to unlock the bootloader and reboot back to fastboot, and if it is locked again, than you have bad emmc, which is a hardware issue and you will need to get another device.
