    Hello Androidcentral,

    My Galaxy S 3 has the issue of constant rebooting. Whenever I attempt to update apps on Play Store, the device will freeze, reset its wallpaper, display a message saying that the System UI has failed, and constantly reboot and crash until the battery dies. A memory wipe and clean install have worked, albeit temporarily. Anything I can do to remedy this problem?

    Welcome to Android Central! What do you mean by a memory wipe and clean install? Do you mean a factory data reset?

    If you haven't already done so, I'd suggest rebooting to the Recovery Menu and wiping the system cache partition, which won't erase any personal data: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Another thing to consider is unmounting the SD card (in Settings>Storage​), removing it, and rebooting. A corrupt SD card can cause various problems.
