You can't brick your phone by flashing with Odin (you've to be a complete idiot to do it). Just download an official ROM from sammobile or live.samsung-updates and flash the .md5 file as PDA in Odin

I gave it a shot but it is still crashing! Any other ideas? Also i have found out something: If i keep my battery below 70% i wont crash. But if i get under 40% it results in boot loop.

Make sure that your battery isn't damaged (if it's damaged then buy a new battery) and maybe it's a hardware problem?

Sounds like a damaged battery to me. Try one from another S3 Mini or Ace II and see if it works.

Not a battery problem! We have tested multiple methods including the spinning one!
Also this can be either because the 4.1.2 update that seems to have broken the so called "NAND memory". Im also going to say one thing: This started happening to many S3 minis when they passed the 1 year age.
My friend also HAD this problem on his old S3 mini but he buyed an iPhone Later.
