Prompt HellyBean 4.3 bootloop: need help analyzing logcat for culprit

I'm running HB3_Franzy 12 RC the final with devil kernel and have been for a while now. Yesterday, for some unknown reason, my phone suddenly decided to reboot. Now it hangs at the bootanimation.

I was able to posthumously enable adb debugging (see my previous thread for details). I could do a clean install and start again, possibly rescuing some data from the nandroid by buying Titanium Pro (as far as I understood Titanium's playstore page, this would be a paid feaature) or via nandroid manager (as suggested by darkztar1)...
But I would much prefer to find the root of the problem and repair it...
Thus, I humbly ask the more experienced members to help me understand the log and seperate fatal from harmless errors

Just the errors:
