To try cut a very long short I have a Nexus5 that I am now unable to boot. I had used the Skipsoft unified Android toolkit a few months ago to both unlock the bootloader and root the device. I backed up my original OS to my PC. Now last few days I have been unable to access the play store UNLESS on wifi so after trying a new sim card with no success I thought I would use the toolkit to lock the bootloader and unroot the device so I could install the latest 4.4.3 system update(which had already downloaded to the phone), at this point the toolkit chucked up a few errors (DOH..did not write them down, what a thick head). OK so update had downloaded and phone restarts but goes straight into TWRP which now asks for a password WTF ? so then I turn off the phone and back on and all I now have is the google logo spinning and nothing else. It even seems adb does not work is there ANYONE WHO CAN ASSIST ME PLEASE... FEEL LIKE CRYING RIGHT NOW..

Don't use a tool kit. Use this. If you still have problems post what errors you're getting here.

Edit, Google 15 second adb drivers xda. That'll setup fastboot/adb which you'll need. Just follow method one in the link I posted. Backup what you can before preceding off your device as it will
be wiped

OK... So managed to format the system then gain access to the new ADB sideload feature to allow me to sideload a new ROM. Thank you to all who read A hope this helps someone..

Relocking the bootloader for an OTA is unnecessary just FYI.
That's probably the reason why Twrp asked for a pass. It's generally good (required) to let the system full boot without any mods when factory restoring.
