Was on 4.2.2 (rooted). Did an OTA upgrade to 4.3. Upgrade completed without incident. Tried to login and after entering my password, my Nexus 4 rebooted. This happens over and over. Even tried booting into safe mode. Always reboots instantly after I enter my password.

At this point, was suspicious that some app required root access and was causing the crash. I updated to Koush's latest superuser but alas, didn't help.

Any ideas or suggestions on how I can get out of this cycle? Is a reset my only alternative at this point?

What did you do when you were in recovery?

Trying the cache wipe now. Previously, with rooted 4.2.2, I used SuperSU and Voodoo RootKeeper. Reading through the forum threads, saw that Rootkeeper created issues so I uninstalled that prior to upgrade. However, I didn't uninstall SuperSU. Could that be problematic?

After reboot, I get the "Android is upgrading" and optimizing all apps dialog (same as what happened after the 4.2.2 to 4.3 OTA update). We'll see what happens.
