I had an S3 with Cynogenmod and I'm flashing a stock rom from here:


The process of flashing, with Odin3, works and in another S3 it worked without any issues, but in this particular one, when it boots, it goes through the process of applying some upgrades, then reboots and shows this:

Any ideas what's going on and/or what to do?

Doing the factory reset allowed the phone to boot up properly.
