As most of you, I had experienced a lot of freezing going on with the jellybean OS, specifically when it came to using Google now. I ended up freeing up a gig of internal memory and then updating Google now and the phone now works fine (I even have hot word detection on). I can't say if the update or the freed up memory (or combo of both) did the trick, but I do know my phone is running without any issues now. If anyone tries this please let me know what your results are. As always I am not liable for any issues you may run into of bricking and/or ruining your device and I offer no guarantee of the safety of any suggestions offered, you take full responsibility for any modifications to your phone.
