    anybody ever have their s3 randomly just shutting off? if so some advice would be greatly appreciated. i have tried many different ROMS and wiping everything before installing new ROMS and so far no such luck to solve this problem. Could it be an app downloaded from the play store? if so i will try uninstalling one at a time to see if this may remedy the issue. thanks in advance for any replies.

    When does it shut off? When trying to use a particular app? When its asleep in your pocket? During tethering?

    I've had all three happened. First was instagram. The camera malfunctioned and kept rebooting my phone everytime i opened it. Uninstall and reinstalled fixed it. Second was due to the rom i changed it. Last was during the introduction of the 3.4 kernel (its safe now).

    When it happens will help you determine what's the cause.

    Usually happens when phone is just sitting on the nightstand not being used. then have to turn it back on to use.

    Are you using any custom kernels? Sounds like the drop in cpu speed during sleep is causing it to shut off. How about crossbreeder? I'm using version 6.18.13v2 with no problems. Anything after i can't vouch for. 6.18 had the small ad block which still allows videos from certain sites to play for me.

    always use the kernel that comes with the ROM. right now i have blackbean 9 installed. not sure which crossbreeder i have installed will have to check.
