I noticed it when I first unboxed it, and so I rooted it, hoping that I could flash some sort of kernal with a gpu that will render properly. I can't discern a pattern as to where it shows up, but it's either big splotches like pictured, or a general pink (sometimes light blue) tint to area's of the screen. The boot animation is also affected, but recovery (Clockworkmod Touch Recovery 18.104.22.168) is not. As far as I can tell, it's not image burn though, none of the splotches are the same size/shape as previous images.
I can sometimes get it to go away for a second or two if I hit my knuckle on the screen, so I don't even know what to think.
I also just flashed this Kernal and it seems to have reduced the issue, but I still see it in some places.
I guess what I'm asking is: Is this a hardware issue and I should send it back? Is it some gpu error that I can fix by flashing something in recovery? What is going on and can I fix it myself without physically opening it up?
Edit: Nope, scratch that, that kernal didnt do anything to help...
