After flashing AOKP ROM, now stuck on boot animation
I was previously running AOKP Jelly Bean Build 1 on my rooted GSM Galaxy Nexus with T-Mobile prepaid. After booting into recovery and doing a wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, and wipe dalvik cache I flashed the ROM and GApps. Then I wiped the battery stats (which I have never done before) and rebooted the phone. It booted up just fine the first time and I linked up my Google account. I then went into the Play Store and installed Titanium Backup-Root and the Root Key so I could restore my app data, but when I clicked on the TiBu app, my phone suddenly rebooted and got stuck on the AOKP "INITIATING SWAGGER" boot animation. After about 15 minutes I took out the battery and powered up the phone again, but it is still stuck in the same spot.
Maybe I don't have enough swagger for Build 4 of AOKP
I pulled the battery and replaced it, held both volumes and power until I got to a screen with the green Android robot and a Start button. I'm thinking that I should wipe it again and flash again, but I'm not sure what I should wipe. Or should I do something else?
Before I flashed the ROM I made a Nandroid and did a backup using TiBu and SMS Backup+. The only thing I did differently this time was that I downloaded the AOKP Build 4 and GApps directly from Chrome on my Gnex. Usually I download them on my laptop and then transfer them over to my phone. Would this make any difference?

Re: After flashing AOKP ROM, now stuck on boot animation
I had the same problem I flashed the latest AOKP in jellybean flavor through ROM manager. When prompted by RM I checked Backup current ROM and clear Davlik but left clear data alone hoping that it wouldn't need me reset everything. RM was going through its paces and started the Pink unicorm animation that kept going and going. My smile disappeared pretty quickly since it was this Friday evening and wasn't looking forward to a bricked phone for the weekend. What i ended up doing was booting into recovery and flashing the AOKP ZIP from there. Rebooted after completed and animation gave way to a prompt to launchers Success finally got the bugger.
Hope this helps
