[NON-DEV] [VZW] Bootloop after 4.4.2 Update

Hey guys,

Tried updating with the 4.4.2 OTA on VZW and my phone got itself stuck in a boot loop. Gets to the android is updating sequence, says starting apps, then "Unfortunately android.proces.acore has stopped" and soft reboots. Totally stock, never rooted.

I got into system recovery and tried wiping cache but no luck with that. There are options to apply updates from sdcard and ADB, so is there a factory image for VZW 4.4 that I can push to my phone and apply it in recovery or am I SOL and have to do a factory reset? I'd hate to have to lose data...

Thanks!

What version of the bootloader are you on?

Don't even know how to get to the bootloader on this phone. I can get into fastboot and recovery...

There's no way to power down. I can soft reset and get into fastboot but that's about it.

Hold the power button down for 10 sec that should hard shut down the device

No dice, after I let go it boots back up...

I am able to adb sideload and I found this : https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B9qC3...xport=download (zip of the 4.4 system image).

Does applying this seem like a legit approach?

Have you tried a factory reset in recovery?

I haven't but I'd rather not lose texts, app data etc because those aren't saved to the internal sdcard partition, correct?
