    Are you able to boot into recovery by holding the vol up and down buttons while turning the phone on? If you can get into recovery you can start over.

    Thats the bootloader, but yes, if you can boot to that, you can restore back to stock.

    If you have any ROMs stored on your phone you can wipe data, wipe cache, and wipe dalvik, then just install the ROM from zip. Although, it sounds like you only had it unlocked and rooted on the stock ROM. I don't know the one click method to return to stock. You may try and see if the guide on rootzwiki will help you or maybe someone else here will know more of what to do.

    After you get into recovery, you should first select and run the factory reset/wipe data function, then reboot your phone/sign in and make sure everything is OK. Then, redownload whatever ROM you're trying to flash. It could be that your problem is from a bad ROM download. Then reboot back into recovery and again do a factory reset, then flash the ROM per the ROMs instructions (also, having previously downloaded the file, flash gapps if that is required in the ROMs installation instructions). Before you flash, make sure you go through Cyber's sticky (at the top of this page) for installing a ROM. I could be wrong, but it sounds like you're not quite sure you know what's going on here. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but if I'm right, nothing is going to help you out more than having a better understanding of this process.

    You need to recover the phone. If you don't have clockwork recovery or any other custom recovery, you won't be able to flash a rom. You need fastboot and the files from google to restore your phone.

    save it to the desktop, makes it a world easier to find.

    just make a folder on your desktop. redownload the files needed for odin and put all the files in that folder. this way, when you have to find them, its a lot easier.
