    You could try booting into your stock recovery and clearing cache. Otherwise you could be faced with a full factory reset.

    So you did do a factory reset from within Settings or from the stock recovery?

    Hmmm... Sounds like something goofed in the update for sure. Do you have store or carrier warranty/insurance on it? It might be worth exercising that option to see if they can help. It almost sounds like the device needs to have the OS reloaded onto it which can only be done by unlocking the bootloader in turn voiding the warranty.

    Unless someone else has some suggestions I'm pointing toward one of those rare situations where something went wrong with the update or possibly a hardware related issue (motherboard) that might be causing this.

    Yeah this is odd.. If factory resets and all hasn't helped then I'm leaning toward a possible glitch in the update which would require unlocking of the bootloader and flashing it again or the possibility of hardware issues which we've seen before on different devices causing strange occurrences.

    I agree trying to reflashing a stock ROM with Odin. That will most likely wipe the device.
