Seems the problem is my external hard drive, if that is plugged in when the system boots it causes - the message that the system software didn't start properly (as in the first post).
So it's definitely the drive and not software related. Bloody weird though, not sure how to go about this - will try the drive in a different enclosure I reckon as maybe it's that the spin up is delayed too much or something in this particular enclosure....
All recovery options now work, however none of them fix the problem - obviously update system software doesn't work and gives corrupted data as expected.
Somebody shoot me....back to downgrading again, christ sake!

Could this be related to a problem with the Rogero firmware? and not the drive, will see what happens on 3.7 when I downgrade again, this is incredibly annoying, but true enough as you say. It's only data
