Boot into bootloader and restore factory images: http://www.droid-life.com/2011/12/1...the-bootloader-and-return-to-a-factory-state/

Skip the last part about relocking the bootloader.. In fact only follow the part that restores the factory system part. You should be fine leaving your radios and recovery exactly as they are now. This should also preserve anything on your sd.

Then boot into your system and stick a new ROM on your sd card. PZ is highly outdated, I'll just recommend
AOKP b39. Remember to download the Gapps and place them on the sd as well and flash them directly after the rom, then reboot.

You should be happy with aokp.. PZ was just Th3ory's build using all aokp features anyways.

Oh you'll want to flash a different kernel as well, they derped the kernel included in b39 I guess. I say go with francos, it's the most recommended and also was probably what came in the PZ build you were running before.. Of course the choice is yours, just letting you know you'll want to switch out the one that comes in b39 for something else after you flash.

I'll try that, any idea why this happened? PZ is outdated?

No idea at all why it happened. Browser shouldn't just freeze on you, but in any case doing a battery pull when things are frozen is always risky. Thankfully this phone is unbreakable and with a few quick commands you can be up and running again in no time :)

Since the phone gets stuck at bootup, computer won't recognize my phone, and I can't get anything transferred. I tried plugging in during recovery mode and still the same thing Any ideas?

Your computer won't recognize it at all? Hmmm.

Follow the instructions I linked to earlier.. you only need to boot into the bootloader to accomplish the factory system restore, at which point you ought to be alright to move forward. If your computer isn't recognizing the phone in bootloader (fastboot) mode then its probably just a driver issue.

If you like patient zero, there's version m3. It is not update as much other roms but that is what I keep going back to.
