Boot into recovery, mount /data, adb shell into your phone and rm -rf /data/data/com.android.phone
Reboot and phone shouldn't crash.
Use TitaniumBackup to backup ONLY user apps + data, factory reset (format data) and restore user apps + data. You only need to reconfigure stuff that is not user app related and sync accounts.
