SDS in my opinion has nothing to do with freezing, but in some cases discussed on several threads, they said that the level of damage taken by the eMMC chips is what is causing freezes and eventually and upcoming Sudden Death, but not sure if this is right, will keep you posted !

but some people have reported the leaving the phone to unfreeze it self will help to get less freezes

maybe Sammy SDS fix codes are doing something in the background to fix the eMMC when the phone get freeze

Interesting ; Happened to me on friday iwas charging my phone normally and gone out, i returned home to check it and it was ice cold "Completely frozen" LED is off and phone completely off, pulled out the battery on put it back on and my S3 Booted successfully. Andreilux DEV of perseus kernel said that samsung didn't fix the problem entirely and that update 7 is not a "Permanant fix" for SDS and has got to have a complete kernel fix to prevent once and for all the SDS problem, so maybe this is one the disadvantages of the momentarily fix of SDS implemented in custom kernel and custom recoveries.

yep as u said probably its not the Permanent fix

maybe Sammy trying to find safe way to update the eMMC firmware or the Permanent fix

and if its not implemented in kernels and recoveries the chance of getting dead phone is very high

Me and other fellow mates on xda who thought hopefully that the nightmare of SDS is gone,apparently it's not, probably it's getting worse and worse with every day of use, that why am not using my s3 for heavy stuff like always, i pull the battery out for the night just to put it back on in morning. i really like the s3, and this problem will influence my desire of if or if not i am going to buy the next flagship device from samsung.

Overall,some Android 4.1.2 builds with SDS fix is one of reasons for freezing.

Hi guys!

I'm new here, I just registered in order to see if other people were having the 'freezing' problem. I got my Galaxy S3 in summer thanks to Vodafone, that gave me the phone free. It has always worked smoothly without any troubles, but it started to freeze last month, I can't remember exactly when it started but I do remember that it solved by itself, and it hasn't been freezing until yesterday. Yesterday I received a software update notification, and I decided to update the phone, I think it was 26mb to download, so it took just a few minutes to download and install, when it finished updating I saw the notification saying that the phone had been correctly updated, but when I tapped OK the phone froze then I restarted it by holding 10s the power button, and it's been freezing until now.

I've reading about this 'XXELLA' problem and I haven't been able to find a solution. For me, it's not a WiFi/Connection problem, it freezes anyway with/without being connection (I don't have 3G) and I'm not sure about how to unistall Chrome, there's only a 'delete updates' option in the App manager, and it downloads again by itself. I also read a possible solution in another forum: [...] In the dialler, type *#0011#. You'll go into the service mode. Select wi-fi using the menu button and you should see a toggle to disable WPS mode. Change it to OFF, I haven't tried that yet, but maybe I'll try that later. Is there any other solution? I know that the first time that I had this annoying problem it fixed by itself, but I'm afraid that the constant freezing may cause several damage to the phone, I think I'm going to send it to Vodafone since I have the phone in warranty.

Thanks for your time, and sorry if my English isn't correct, I speak spanish.
