    I have no clue what's going on...I have a rooted but stock GS3, only about 2 months old. I installed Kayak and Lose It! apps from the Play Store earlier, and make a few new folders on my homescreen. All of a sudden, my phone froze up, and it rebooted. (This has happened off and on to me over the last few weeks, but after a quick reboot it's totally fine). Unfortunately, it now isn't fine. I get past the flashy Verizon "4G LTE" screen, and the phone locks up at the homescreen. If I'm lucky I'll get about 5 seconds to quickly try and swipe my screen, but as soon as I do that it locks up, screen goes dark and I'm back at square one.

    If someone could please help me out ASAP, I would so much appreciate it! Is there anything I can do without totally wiping my phone? (I have made a couple of backups with Titanium Backup; the last one was several days ago). Will I even be able to wipe my phone at this point?

    I owned a Droid X before my GS3 and never encountered this problem personally before...

    UPDATE: I managed to get my phone to boot into Safe Mode and it loaded just fine that way--I went and uninstalled both Kayak and Lose It! in the hopes that would fix the problem. After I tried rebooting in regular mode though, no luck. It's still freezing up. This is so frustrating.

    FINAL UPDATE: After booting into Safe Mode *again* for the umpeenth time, I remembered that Busy Box and Super SU had both had updates late yesterday. I uninstalled them both from my phone in safe mode, rebooted, and LO and BEHOLD--I'm fully functional again! Must have been some kind of conflict. Hope this helps someone else if they're having the same issue. Boot into SM and uninstall those two apps.
