Really weird but I deleted any sketchy apps like this ringtone maker and an instagram collage maker. I'll see how it goes...

Thank you it's really helpful! I just deleted some apps prior to running this app and it tells me that I'm fine. So I hope that means I chose to delete the right apps already!

Most people on xda are smart enough to not download stupid smiley crap. Not all but most.

You just need to check the last apps you downloaded and uninstall them to find which apps is causing this.

I would use fastboot commands to erase userdata, erase cache, flash a new userdata.img file, boot into recovery, wipe data, wipe cache, reboot.

Commands are:
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot flash userdata.img (the img file needs to be extracted from the stock ROM currently installed on the phone)

After flashing usedata.img file, do not reboot yet. Select recovery using volume button from fastboot menu, wipe data, wipe cache, reboot.

Of course, do this will completely wipe data from the phone.

If the above doesn't work, reflash the entire stock ROM (recovery, cache, etc.) and perform the above steps before booting the phone for the first time.

i had this with honor a few months back with a friend of mine.. reformat everything everything stays the same.. its with the system your having problem..

what i did? you wouldn't like this but it solves everything:
Reflash your firmware, using a toolkit or adb
erases everything including your custom recovery, pretty much everything on your phone
