Default my galaxy s3 is not working after 4.3 update

Yesterday i have updated my galaxy s3 to jelly bean 4.3, after that my phone is not responding.

late response from phone, keyboard is not displaying (always getting a message "unfortunately samsung keyboard has stopped").

Taking more than 10sec for any action.

is there any fix for it? Please advise how to uninstall 4.3.

This is an odd one... had a friend who just had it happened to her. The keyboard crashed after this update and nothing she does works... resetting phone did nothing either. She cannot even get kies to do an emergency firmware recovery because the phone disconnects when she clicks on that particular option.

Hey there... unfortunately in her case a factory reset did not work. I got her to do the reset in settings a few times and to no avail. She did a hard reset and the same issue as well: No keyboard. I let her try installing an apk for google keyboard and that also did not work.

so unsure at this point what is the next option

Next option is to take it to a store so they can manually re-install the update. Aside from that the only option would be to root the device and install a custom ROM or an older stock ROM.
