S3 keeps rebooting by itself.
I heard about the insane chip thing recently, when I looked up what could be happening to my phone which keeps rebooting by itself every two hours or so.
Sometimes it freezes right after it starts up. Yesterday it seemed it had formatted itself, because all apps seemed to be gone, and the desktop had reset itself (though strangely the wallpapers for the lock and regular screen where still there, and so where all my pics and contacts). But on restart, everything came back.
So, anyway, I installed the eMMC check app. And indeed, I have the insane chip.
My phone is a GT-19300 international version.
OS version: 4.1.2

I've read about rooting, but honestly I don't want to do it. Neither look for an unofficial 4.2.2 OS (I've read posts from people that had formatted and installed that OS, and they keep having problems).
Is there any simple solution?
I've heard that the OS I have is good enough to at least have the phone not DIE on me... but the constant restarts can't be a good sign! And frankly, it's quite annoying and a hassle!
Thanks for any help!
