You should identify why you Raspberry Pi is locking up and freezing all the time. You should consider running Root from a USB drive as well. It's faster and seems to get corrupted less. SanDisk makes a micro USB adaptor that doesn't look ugly sticking out the side of the Raspberry Pi. They have a USB 3 model now as well that I've confirmed to run faster although the RPi only really supports USB 2.
1. Make sure you are getting enough power to the Raspberry Pi. The model 2 requires more, especially with USB devices plugged in.
2. Don't run rpi-update unless you know you need it. The most recent "stable" firmware will always be more reliable.
3. If you have the model 2, you might need to put "max_usb_current=1" in /boot/config.txt if you have usb devices that draw a lot of power plugged directly in to the Pi. You can alternatively use a powered USB hub.
