Unhappy [Q] [HELP] phone randomly freezes - LiquidSmooth 2.37

Hello!
I've been on LiquidSmooth v2.37 for the last 3 months and with great pleasure. After flashing the ROM back in Nov 2013 I experienced few random phone hangs which I initially ignored => long press of power button and problem solved. These hangs became more frequent in Dec 2013 so I tried a cache wipe and also a factory reset with little success: the phone hangs frequency decreased but not disappeared. Presently I get this problem from 1 to 3-5 times per day, which starts to be annoying.

- Never modified the ROM. 100% LiquidSmooth official and original
- The phone does not completely freeze: screen and buttons become unresponsive however the status led still blinks. Moreover if I try to call the i9300 I can hear the call tones through the other phone, however no sound / vibration is produced by the i9300.
- Hangs happen mostly when I'm using apps but I could not find a pattern so they look random to me

Before i was on ParanoidAndroid and I have never experienced such issue.
Any suggestion? I don't wanna leave this ROM since it's really really good for me.

Thanks for your help!

Wipe and flash stock rom, if still freezing then you have bad memory blocks -read the freezing thread in general forum.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Thanks.

Is there another way to test memory health rather than flashing the stock firmware? Maybe a benchmark app or something?
Where can I find the latest stock firmware and the guide to flash it?

Memory test may be more destructive than a stock flash .

You have a Nandroid .

hmm, ok, I'll install the stock firmware again.
can I pick any stock firmware for GT-I9300 or should I select the firmware based on phone current FW/baseband/recovery installed?

Use the latest full stock issued for your country, flash with odin and factory reset.
