Nokia 6.1 hangs on AndroidOne boot screen

Some time last week the phone stopped booting. It would get to a Nokia screen and hang for hours. I managed to get into recovery and attempted a factory reset, but it hangs on 'wiping /data'. Now it can't get past the Android One screen.

I never unlocked the bootloader or set up USB debugging and I really wish I did. I use linux at home and it won't recognize the phone using adb or fastboot. I set up an older laptop running windows with nokia USB drivers, adb, and fastboot and the laptop can't see the phone either. 

I was thinking of trying to re-install firmware from sd card, but don't know where to get it from. Is there a reliable source? Should I install a custom recovery first, like twrp, or is that not going to work since the bootloader is probably locked?

Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Better Take the device to care center where they will re-flash the software properly

    Thanks, that's probably the only option at this point. I'll give that a try.
