    My phone will not boot after unlocking it. I am able to reboot into recovery (Volume buttons + Power) and can unlock and/or relock from the adb command shell, but no matter what I do the phone always gets stuck at the Google image.

    A side note, I did not try to load the boot.img, was just unlocking and restarting.

    Im getting same thing when I unlocked the bootloader Im now seeing the google logo and under that an unlocked "lock image" and it keeps looping that. When I go into fastboot it says my device is unlocked but I can't get into my phone anymore because of the above mentioned loop. I watched video and I unplugged phone and its still boot looping

    everyone dives in so fast, it is beneficial for all users to know more about what your doing before you do it.

    IE: watch the video numerous times, know how to flash the factory image back so you can recover your phone, patience, time, and a fully charged battery!

    just a few helpful steps!

    After you said that I tried your method except I also did what video said. Re-lock your phone then unlock it as soon you see it say that it was successful unplug the phone and then hit your power button to complete the process. you should get the splash screen it may hang up there for a bit feel free to power down and try again if you dont get welcome screen. I got it working after I powered down while it was trying to load. Hope that works for you two as well let me know.

    Like VS said everyone please make sure you do any rooting activities on an adequately charged battery
