Well its been a year since I've been using s3. Few days back i encountered with this freezing and hanging problem. Sometimes my phone would freeze while on any app (non-specific). Sometimes it does not wake up from the Standby mode. Always have to press the power button in order to restart it. I used Odin to reinstall the same firmware which i have. Didn't help.
The funny thing is i never flashed my s3 with Odin before and still Kies wont recognise my phone it says "Your Device's Current Firmware not supported to update via Kies". I know its got something to do with product code and all. I always updated my phone through Kies. YES ITS UNROOTED.

I never worried about Kies since i had jelly bean 4.1.2. I guess after this update Kies stopped recognising. Since i had the latest firmware I did not bother to post anywhere but after its been acting crazy I don't know what to do.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Device Info:
Model : GT-I9300
Android version : 4.1.2
Baseband Version : I9300XXELLA
Build Number : JZO54K.I9300XXEMA2

Info from *#1234*
AP : I9300XXEMA2
CP : I9300XXELLA

Hi, it may sound crazy, but my friend had same issue. He removed the battery put phone into plastic bag and placed the phone into fridge overnight. Then inserted battery and phone worked. Try "Emergency recovery" from KIES menu.. It helped me in the past, when I messed with my phone...

Well it sounds crazy, indeed :p. Well kies does not support "Emergency Recovery" it says GT-I9300 does not support initialisation. How do i get rid of the "your device's current firmware version is not supported to update firmware via Kies". I guess it might solve that annoying freezes.
