    My phone's wi fi modem is dead and I did factory reset not knowing I needed to be online to setp up the phone for the first time. Mobile wi fi is not working either (I guess it's because it needs to have roaming activated and it's off by default). I cannot flash the phone since I cannot unlock the bootloader from inside and I really don't know what to do anymore. It is as if the phone is bricked.

    The phone needs to connect in order to check for Factory Reset Protection during setup. If it can't check that, it can't set up.
