    Concurrently with updating to 4.3, I messed around with a bunch of stupid sideloaded apps and unsupported nonsense.

    Also beginning at this time, I've started having "hangs," lasting about 30 seconds, and occasionally hard lock-ups, such that my phone does not respond to any command under any circumstances (I waited once for several hours), and I have to take out the battery and stuff to regain control.

    The hangs occur about once every 1-2 days, while the lock-ups occur about once every two weeks. Incidentally, I have only encountered these while using google apps (maps, chrome).

    I'm trying to tease out whether my dabbling in sideloaded apps and unsupported nonsense has caused these annoyances, or whether this is par for the course with the 4.3 update. So, what are you guys experiencing?

    Everyone gets different bugs from the update. You'll have to "downdate" or wait for the next fix.

    Are you rooted/on a rooted version of 4.3?
