perform a hard reset in the 'stock' recovery (this will format /data).
then boot in and re-setup. any userdata you had will be gone (including media/content stored locally, etc.).
in case of /system corruption (after performing the above; you still cannot boot in), you can format that partition separately and re-flash it from the CWM file for the latest posted stock update.
you can find file(s) on droidbasement, as needed.
