Unfortunately google search has stopped - phone forever frozen
I'm having a lot of troubles today with my N4.
I'm completely stock, not rooted, bootloader unlocked, and received 4.4.4 earlier today.
I installed 4.4.4 and used my phone for a couple of hours. Everything was working fine - email, podcasting, etc.. After that I launched google now as I was leaving the house and it froze. Since then my phone is not functional. Either it tries to boot without success, getting stuck on the boot animation forever. When I hard reset sometimes I go through the boot stage but I'm greeted most of the times by the message "unfortunately google search has stopped" and then I can't do anything. Or I manage to start the unlocking process but it gets stuck and then nothing.
Do you guys have any idea what I can do.
Thanks for the help.

Re: Unfortunately google search has stopped - phone forever frozen
Hm. Since you can't get past the lock screen, you don't have a lot of options. I'd try clearing the cache in recovery mode. If that doesn't work, you may be stuck doing a factory reset. If that doesn't work, your last-ditch option would be to unlock the bootloader and re-flash either the stock or some other firmware. If none of that works, it's hardware and you're screwed.
