Default [Q] S3 Freezing, Unfortunately X has stopped

Hi guys,

I am having a very frustrating problem with my S3. I had the google.process.gapps stopping randomly for a few days, but that wasn't more than an annoyance. Last night, my battery run out and when I plugged my S3 it in and turned it on, all hell broke loose. Starting with the lock screen I have been getting non-stop "Unfortunately X has stopped" with X being anything from LogsProvider, NfcService, ContextProvider, SysScope and the already mentioned google.process.gapps. As long as I stay on the lock screen I can click these away...eventually. If I try to go into Settings or in the normal screen I get another batch of those messages, but this time the SysScope one, just keeps coming and coming and coming, so that I can't do absolutely anything. I have tried the same in Safe Mode but there wasn't any change.

Please tell me there is something I can do, other than a factory wipe.

Do a factory wipe.

As above, try a wipe first -but letting your battery run out can corrupt a partition. You may need to reflash your firmware.

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