When I turn on my s5 att varient it shows a padlock unlocked and says custom, all I have done was install SD card and change runtime system from dalvik to art. Anyone have any ideas? Can the phone really be unlocked?

Switching to art makes it custom. Going back to davlik makes it normal again.

I switched back yesterday and it stayed the same. So I just switched it back but rebooted twice this time and now it's gone. I wish it was just that easy to unlock the phone. Thanks for the info. Also why do you think the lock is unlocked?

Haven't got a clue about the padlock as I've got a stock handset.
