I'll simplify things, you only have three options.
1) Install updates from syncmyride
2) Master reset, fuse pull, master reset, fuse pull, master reset...
3) Dealer visit
To answer your questions of is it possible: Yes. The early versions of MFT used to freeze for 30 seconds every time the auto-dimming kicked in at dusk, so that's connected. Some versions of MFT have the ambient light selection, or at least were designed to, so its possibly connected.
This is bizarre, but it's not quite the most bizarre (the speaker thumping when unlocking the car is the most bizarre in my opinion). It used to be a weekly experience for me: crashes, reboots, random unresponsiveness with unpredictable changes in volume, inability to turn the system off, system wouldn't turn off until accessory power expired (5-10 mins), etc.
