Exclamation Official KitKat update problem

So today my phone tells me there's a new official system update to Android 4.4 KitKat. It was already downloaded so I just started the install. After it finished my phone restarted as it's supposed to. When it gets to the screen after the boot animation that says "Android is upgrading" and optimizing apps, it just restarts. It's still restarting as we speak. Sometimes before it gets to that screen. Is there anything I can do to save it without wiping it and starting fresh?

----------------------------
Nevermind, after many many restarts it stayed on the optimizing apps screen and it's finishing it up now
