What I discovered today (first day with S4) is that if you freeze Knox, the open lock and "custom" caption - which appear after rooting - on the boot screen disappear. I have no idea what Knox is for.... I can't believe how much bloat there is on this phone!

More than likely, the custom lock on your screen is appearing or disappearing randomly and has nothing to do with KNOX. It probably just changed because you did 'something" to your phone. SysScope is the process that determines the result of the scan to be custom or official. Your phone might stay the way it is now, or it might revert back at some point to custom. Search for sysscope if you want to learn more about it.

Make sure you read and understand the "PINNED" threads in the "General" and "Q & A" sections of the AT&T S4 forum BEFORE you ask for help. Use the forum's "search" function to find posts with additional information. You should not expect others to help you if you haven't tried to help yourself first. Also, read, understand, and follow the "XDA" rules.

Thanks. I was just reading about knox. Loads of info out there OP, in case you're interested. It seemed like a pretty consistent response. - freeze the two knox apps and the lock disappears, unfreeze and the lock reappears. I'll have a look at SysScope....
