Okay I tried reading some stuff and have no clue, I am a total newb at this. I have NOT rooted my phone or put a custom ROM on. I stopped using the phone like 3 months ago when I upgraded, and today I decide I want to sell it but when I try to do a Master Reset the bootloader says "Tampered" and "Locked". I do see the it is S-On. I have no clue what these things means, but this is what I read when I was doing research. I did the System Updates, but again, did nothing custom personally. I need to hard reset the phone, please help!
The "Tampered" means that the bootloader was unlocked at one time and the "Locked" means that the bootloader is Locked. If you bought it off of someone, they might have done it and didn't do a good job of ensuring the "Tampered" was removed. In order to remove the "Tampered" you would have to be S-OFF. You can still do a phone reset in Settings and it will remove all of your personal data but it will remain "Tampered" and "Locked".
