    Long story, but had to do a factory reset to my N4 and now I have 4.3. Everything is running fine, except I'd like to add my pattern lock back. But when I go to settings and click on "security," the settings app crashes. Any thoughts on how I can remedy this? I've tried going to the settings app and deleting cache and data, but hasn't helped. Nor has restarting the phone.

    I would try resetting it one more time.

    Yeah, I know. Thanks. I was just hoping to avoid having to do another one and once again redo all my settings, etc.

    Just did a factory reset again. Nope, nada. The security setting still causes the settings app to crash. F&*&^!

    UPDATE: Came home and followed 2defmouze's awesome factory image restore instructions and bam, I'm good to go! Amazing this worked, but the update that Google pushed to me didn't ...

    I had the exact same problem. I was able to fix it by rebooting into recovery, clearing the caches; reloading the Android 4.2.2 image and then reinstalling 4.3 over the air. Granted that does seem to be the long way around, but I now have a factory fresh S4 with everything working!
