I recently flashed the latest PACman rom 4.3 and I'm not sure what went wrong. I'm coming from 4.2. I did everything the same as usual, wiped cache and dalvik, installed the zip. As soon as the phone rebooted, I started getting error messages. "Acore has stopped working, blame tyler", same thing for the system UI. So I decided to do a wipe and restore. Well now my restore wont work. I've had to go back to a PAC version from back in February because none of my other restore files will work. I'm not sure what to do. Even on this restore file, I'm getting "insufficient storage" messages when I havent even uploaded all my apps yet.
I had similar problems going to 4.3 as well. Mine kept getting frozen at the boot screen, and wouldn't restore any of my backups. I tried flashing back to previous versions of android and nothing was really making any difference. Finally I ended up flashing the whole phone back to stock. From there I flashed the new 4.3 stuff on top of that and now everything is working flawlessly like it should again. I still have no idea what caused the issues, it's gotta be something in the new 4.3 stuff that's trickling in.
Here's what I did:
Download the most recent complete firmware file (which is UCDLK3 for d2att)
Download the pit file for my phone
Flash stock image and pit file with repartition through ODIN
Flash custom recovery back through ODIN (CWM, TWRP, etc)
Download and flash latest UCDMG2 bootloader (for d2att)
Download and flash your choice of ROM, kernel & gapps
and optionally -
Update modem to latest UCDMG2
Now you should be back to a fresh install of 4.3 which works the way it should! Hopefully you had your apps backed up with titanium or something similar which can be restored now as well.
