I recently updated my AT&T GS3 from 4.3 to 4.4.2. My phone was rooted and as such I used Odin to go back to stock and add a custom recovery later, which I used to install the update .zip file and SuperSU. I let everything load r and it went totally normally with the exception of two things: it ran no initial setup program and instead booted directly to the home screen (but this caused no issues) and also every time I view the home screen a grey text box appears with yellow text that displays phone stats like PDA, Phone, CSC, H/W, and such. How do I remove this?

Its called Factory Mode. To turn it off, open Terminal Emulator and enter this:
echo -n ON > /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
