I tried to flash ubuntu touch (saucy) on my i9250 and I got stuck on bootloop before I was able to push and flash the last file saucy-preinstalled-touch-armhf.zip.

Now I am unable to boot into bootloader. When I open my phone it shows the Google logo and then it turns off. The problem is I cannot boot into bootloader/fastboot so I can flash the file.

Any ideas?

Hopefully you didn't brick it.

Try booting into System Recovery Mode..

Press and hold the Volume Down button, and press then Power button until the screen lights up. Then select Recovery and press Power button to confirm.

Might look something like this:
