    Long story short. Went from PA3.68 to Mmuzy 4.3. Everything worked booted and was installing apps. After a reboot the system froze at Google screen (with unlock symbol)

    After a few battery pulls and a couple of tries at reinstalling 4.3 ROM, decided to go back to 4.2.2 PA.

    First tried a Nandroid restore...same issue of freezing at Google screen.

    Lastly have done factory reset(for 4th time) and reinstall of 4.2.2 pa3.68 and PA Gapps.

    Same issue, phone will not move past Google boot screen.

    Did you also wipe dalvik cache in addition to your factory reset? How long did you wait at the Google screen after restoring your nandroid. Really surprised that didn't work.

    This could be totally irrelevant, but I would also sometimes get the error while restoring data or whatever and the nandroid wouldn't work. The solution I found, which could just be coincidence is not naming the backup. Whenever i would change the name in the Clockwork mod app to, say, AOKP m6 backup or something like that, the nandroid would never work.

    Thanks, in this case it wasn't renamed. It was though my 1st and only with CWM after changing from twrp earlier in the week.

    I am back to twrp and was able to install and am running the MMuzzy 4.3 build. Outside of having to reRoot all is very smooth.
