    I've seen this a few times. I've never know what causes this. Usually flashing a different rom fixes the issue. Try the ROM list I have in my signature. I just updated it today

    What are you wiping when you flash roms? When you're not updating a particular rom you should wipe factory reset, cache, dalvik, and system (the last two just as a precaution seeing as how dalvic is wiped when you factory reset).

    Oh wow, if you've gone that far then I have no other suggestions. I really hope this time it just works on it's own. I'm sorry I'm of no help in this situation. :(
