Samsung phones tend to be resilient and are darn near impossible to completely hard brick. You should try flashing a pure, clean, stock image with Odin (requires Windows) and then go back to romming again, just to start clean from square one. Often when messing with roms, I find weird glitches, bugs, or even "echoes" of stuff that was part of a past ROM, but shouldn't appear in a new or different ROM. The cleaner the slate you put a new ROM onto, the better.
Maybe it's just me, but I thought it was a fairly standard practice to always start from stock, then root or flash (odin) a rooted rom then update with any other things. At least that's how I do it. Was always much easier to keep the flow simple that way.
