You'll need to give a little more information rather than "tried to get stock ROM".

What did you do, what did you flash, are you S-On or S-Off? Have you somehow wiped the /system partition? Do you have a custom recovery installed currently?

Have you even unlocked the bootloader?

EDIT: I have to go now. I'm not sure what situation you're in. I don't normally suggest people use Toolkits and the like, but if you are in difficulties, in the first instance do a search (I doubt if you are the first person to have been in whatever position you are in). If you can't sort yourself out from the results, then have a look at this thread.

S-ON i think the system partion is whiped because i cant do anything other than fastboot the bootloader is locked so i cant get into a custom recovery. I was following a youtube video on how to get back to stock after rooting the the guy had me do a oem command in fastboot.

OK. But I'm not sure that you have actually wiped your /system partition.

Before you do anything, in fastboot mode (the white screen with the mutli coloured writing on it), type the following in a command prompt from the fastboot folder/directory on your PC, then press enter:

Code:
Select Code
fastboot erase cache
and if that does nothing

Code:
Select Code
fastboot wipe cache
Then try to reboot by typing

Code:
Select Code
fastboot reboot
and hit enter.

If that doesn't work, grab the toolkit I linked to and you'll want to

1. Unlock bootloader
2. Flash custom recovery (choose TWRP)
3. Sideload ROM from recovery and follow the relevant instructions in recovery (You'll need to download a ROM to your PC and place it in the relevant directory)

Never, ever conform
