I assume the bootloader checkes some system files and swiches then to official.
But cause of the eMMC is half broken and the bootloader can't check that files, it stays on custom.
well I read some people out of xda complaining samsung did that
To say that system status custom means the device was root sounds like the defense of samsung keep saying there is no problem in non root devices.
That is why I went myself and left a letter saying I was running offical carrier firmware (which is true.. didn´t say anythink about root (was not before die) or download mode info because by now I have no idea what are these things
and asking for a new device with 4.1.2 which is not available for my carrier but is for unbranded phone). I even asked if they needed I could wait they try to fix or check something (I knew they would not, even having techincals there, and they really didn´t...only checked for physical aspects).
I have no experience with samsung warranty service here, but many dramas with LG, so I need to be ready.
