just going through the process now as i type.. first one failed saying invalid partition but then said about flashboot oem unlock so i have done that first and it now seems to be allowing the system.img to be flashed..

fingers crossed it works!

ok flashed all of the .img resterted it and now it just says google on the screen with an unlocked padlock at the bottom, been like that for 30 secs so far, seems to have done somehting as previously it was just going into the animation and restarting..

Should i be doing a factory reset?

If it shows the Google image then there's a kernel so the boot image was successful but if it doesn't go past it means you have no ROM so the system flash must have failed. Terry flashing system again. Sorry for the late response

I'm not sure why it isn't working

Well now that your boot loader is unlocked you can try the toolkit again and see of it works. Use the option that says factory reset or unbrick or whatever it says and choose stuck in bootloop. Then follow the instructions if that v doesn't work is recommend locking the bootloader using "fastboot oem lock" and trying to return it.

Or you could wait a little and see if someo else has ideas. Try the toolkit again first though

Make sure if you return it to do the lock bootloader command first.
