    Try "reboot" - press volume keys until the word is highlighted then press power to select.

    Booting into hboot happens if you are pressing the volume down key while the phone reboots. If the key is stuck this will always happen: if you cannot use the volume keys to select reboot that will mean you have a stuck key.

    (You can also end up in hboot if you've totally wiped the operating system, but that doesn't sound likely).

    "Locked" on the hboot screen is normal, it just means you've not unlocked the bootloader.
