    Could be a software problem but, in my experience, most sync problems like that are hardware failures.

    If you're downloading ROMs, does that mean that your phone is rooted? If so, that might cause problems with receiving OTA updates from your carrier. If not, then maybe it really is a hardware issue.

    Does the display problem only happen when you're showing the desktop launcher, or does it also happen inside an app?

    No you don't have to be rooted to download a ROM from SamMobile and use ODIN to flash it, they are all stock firmware. However you are correct that flashing another regions firmware will stop updates for the region your in with your device. It changes the CSC code when you do that telling the servers that there is a mismatch to what the phone should have on it.

    Have you tried wiping the cache partition as described in this thread? That can fix problems, especially after an update. But if that doesn't work, I'd probably take the phone back and exchange it for another.

    Looks like it could of been something messed up in the updating process, worst scenario it's hardware related.

    You could download keis and see if you can restore the update.

    hey dude i would rather suggest you to check your phone by an expert damaged phone repair center although diy can save you few bucks but it can also cause you lots of mess if went wrong.
