First I restored to the original firmware of my carrier, (4.0.4) even though I bought my phone unbranded, just to have the right settings of the network, you know, frequencies and whatever. Then you have two options, you can either log into the phone and do an OTA (over the air) update to 4.1.2 if it's available in your area/carrier, or you can flash a different firmware. I didn't trust XXEMR2 anymore so I flashed XXEMB5. It has now been 48 hours and no freezes, it seems to be back to normal, although I don't want to be too optimistic, I have my fair amount of experience with Samsung.

It's been a while since I did this, the phone works perfectly. SOLVED!

Thumbs up Only Freezes with 2 apps
This is my 1st post to be gentle!

I have the S3 I9300 and is totally stock
1 month ago my phone started to freeze and it was driving me nuts and did some searching and found this thread. (thankfully)

So I tried loads of tips from it
*reset to factory settings
*turned off the wifi thing
*clear cache programme
*deleted chrome (disabled it can’t delete it)
*Uninstalled chrome to phone

This has helped once done the above it doesn’t crash ACCEPT when I use my phone for tracking my cycling.

I use Mapmyride or google tracks ( I have tried both separately) and approx. 40 mins into my cycle my phone stops working and freezes, the blue light flashes on the front and that’s it.
The phone will come back on in approx. 15-20 mins…. But my logging stopps then started again (see this on the map) I can hold the side button down and then the phone restarts

Just thought I’d put this up if anyone else has this issue, annoying as I listen to music plus track my route home but I now don’t track it and just listen to music…. Annoying as I never had this issue, what changed ive no idea!

Wondering as it uses GPS is it something to do with that or is it something to do with it writing information to the disk?? Im not very technical either sorry ;-(

I tried DFG method on my S3, since it was frozing every single minute.
It seems to have some effect cause my phone stop the freezes for a day, but then it back to frozen again.

So the method has some kinda of effect, but it's not permanent.
I'll try to flash XXEMC2 on my phone today and see what happens. Also I bought Lagfix to try it too.

Fings crossed.

obs.: Sorry about my english. I'm from Brazil

freezing
Please could someone clarify what I need to do.

My phone has the build number - JZO54K.I9300XXELLA

I am running andoid 4.1.2 with the baseband version I9300BUELL1 and I have a 32gb micro SD installed.

My phone is freezing at least once a day and I only have minimal apps installed and I only really use the following:

Facebook
Google Chrome
Swiftkey
Whatsapp

I have tried a factory reset with no luck and I have read about SDS and using the Dummy File Generator. I believe my firmware has the SDS fix so it should not loop on boot however I am unsure what I should be doing with the DFG app.

I have backed up my phone on KIES and was planning to run the DFG. I don't really know what I am looking for in the app and what I should do, I read that it should be done at least until 16gb has been written (two times).

Could anyone point me in the write direction? Also will this void my Vodafone Warranty?

Cheers

Thanks for the quick response.

Where would I find that firmware and what code would it be? I thought the last version did not include the SDS fix which could potentially brick the phone.
