I am s on and locked stuck on bootloader mode cant get phone to do anything. I ran toolkit that is out there but all that will do is reboot it back to bootloader mode. Is there any way to fix this?

Yikes S-on and locked? I don't know if you can flash an RUU in this state, can you try? Hopefully someone answers, I haven't tried and I'm also not sure :-\

Can you execute the command:

fastboot oem rebootRUU

and put the phone into RUU mode? If so, then you should be able to flash the firmware from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2485319

the one you want is this one: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23269279319196969 (stock odex)

What were you doing that got you stuck in boot loader? Were you previously S-Off or unlocked?

You mean setting it back to s-on...

my guess is you need to find the encrypted RUU from somewhere. You may be able to find the decrypted RUU then you can use a tool to make it encrypted (ruuveal?) That should let it run when you are locked and s-on

I'm not sure either, depending which version you're on, try this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2524507
