Default Settings crashed on factory reset

I just restored my S4 back to stock (Using the Factory Reset found in Settings).

However, at the end of the wizard, it restarted the wizard saying "Settings has crashed". I tried another reset through the Recovery Menu, and that didn't change anything.


Any ideas. I'm on MDB, 4.2.2 I think.

Thanks, I actually followed another thread I saw on here that walked me through renaming the SettingsWizard apk.

For others coming onto this page, the steps were (loosely) as follows:

From the wizard, create a new Samsung Account.
Go to Login Via Facebook
Go to Download the Facebook App
Search Play Store for NOVA Launcher & install it/open it
Root your phone
Follow same steps to get to Play Store and this time install a file explorer
Go rename the Setup Wizard apk to something else
reboot
Reboot once more
