Default phone wont get past viperrom screen

can someone help me asap please. about an hour ago i was using my phone normally, locked the screen with the button, then a couple minutes later tried to unlock the screen to check my browser but it wouldnt turn on. it was like it turned off. the only way to get it back on was by doing the power plus vol down to go into bootloader. i did that and rebooted everything worked normally on the reboot. i sent a text and locked it. a few minutes later i went to unlock it again to check something but it wouldnt turn on again. this time on the reboot nothing worked. it would reboot and just sit on the screen where it says Viper ROM wtih the red V flashing. i went into recovery and reflashed the rom, now it loaded up, did the "updating apps "x out of xxx" and after that it went to "android is upgrading...starting apps" with the spinning circle on the left. it has been stuck on this screen for about 5 minutes now and the circle is still spinning. what should i do?

edit: ive been on 1.1.0 viper rom for months now, since it first came out and havent had problem up until today. havent messed with any settings or anything. i really am trying to avoid doing a system wipe cause i have important texts i cant lose.
