Brake fittings (conections to front UFO flex hose) frozen,

If the outer hose has torn at the point of highest stress , it is very 
likely the remainder of the hose has seen similar stress at the same point 
and may be about to give way as well.

The apperance of rubber brake line condition is irrelevant IMO, the
outer surface being only an abrasion protective layer for the
underlying build up. Many commercial hydraulic hoses purposefully
perforate this outer layer to prevent balooning upon inner leakage.
