Hey guys, I've got a pesky issue hopefully someone can shed some light on this. A couple weeks ago I noticed the screen on my GS3 (Running Wicked X 8.0) started to flicker little black horizontal lines across the screen. Sometimes you can barely see it other times (especially when the brightness is up all the way) its ridiculously bad. It does it worse in some apps more than others. Like right now i have the brightness at 100% on chrome and its hardly noticeable. But if I go to Facebook its BAD. Once the screen loads all the stuff it goes away somewhat. I had ordered a new OEM front screen and digitizer replacement before this so I wasn't to worried. Figured it was my screens last hoorah before going out. After swapping out screens I powered on my phone and its still doing it. I put my girlfriends sisters motherboard into my old screen and it wasn't doing it. Put it in my new one and still not doing it. I've tried factory resetting it. Turning off HW Overlay anything and everything I've seen I've tried. Even when playing games it doesn't do it. Its very very faint. Idk what the deal is. Please someone help me out. Greatly appreciate it.

Normally I would say ODIN back to Stock. Then see if the issue persists. But in this case since you have already opened the device it may not help as much to troubleshot the device. Still I would ODIN back to Stock to see if it helps.
