Bootloader Status: locked
No custom ROMs ever flashed, just rooted the phone.
Took it to customer care center today, they were like the motherboard is ****ed up.
They've taken it under warranty for now. They're gonna replace the motherboard, they said.

Hope they never find out what actually happened and I get it all covered under warranty

The phone wouldn't boot in any of the modes: Normal, Fastboot, Flashmode.
It would reset/go into bootloop seconds after I boot it into any mode.

I've had this issue, it's difficult but I managed, hold the down button for flashmode, press reset button, as soon as you release it plug phone in as fast as you can! Takes me a few tries but it should work unless you did something really really bad
