[Q] Phone stuck "Optimizing apps" after upgrading rom
Long time visitor, first time poster.
Upgraded rom today when I found of there was an official 4.3 upgrade for the Verizon GS3. Looked around and found this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2600305
Before that, I was on the last official stock, flashed deodexed rom.
Installed rom zip via CWM, rebooted. After loading screen, it starts upgrading apps. It got stuck on 82 of 601. After 15 minutes, I booted into recovery and wiped cache (failed to do this during initial install, it never was a problem before). Reboot, gets stuck on 93 of 465. Hard reboot, total number keeps going down, but keeps sticking.
After several hard reboots (pulling the battery), I got it down to 1 of 1, but it won't go any further. It's been about an hour.
What do I do next?
While waiting for ideas, I'll hard reset, boot into recovery, wipe cache again, and see what happens.
Edit: Wiped cache partition from CWM, rebooted, still stuck at 1 of 1.
