Default Device Status

Hey guys! I have a quick question over here. After I have rooted my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005) International LTE model, I've found out these two things:

1. Previously, after I root my phone and keep my stock recovery, my device status show "Custom" no matter what I do with it.

2. Right now, after I root my phone and flash a custom recovery: CWM, my device status show "Official".

Can anyone help me to understand why this would happen? Thanks!!!

Are you using a custom root rom? Most have it normalized or you can use xposed to make it official too.

That doesn`t matter as the KNOX warranty void is tripped anyway, unless you rooted with Root de la Vega while you had a JB rom. You can also use Triangle Away to reset the staus.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Hey! I'm actually using stock rom. Problem is that, previously, I've already rooted but without flashing the custom recovery, it appears that my device status is custom and I couldn't change it using any Xposed modules. But, this time, because I have a CWM recovery in my phone, and the Xposed modules work. My question is, is it because of the custom recovery, so, the device status now shows official?

No, Xposed works on any rooted phone whether having custom recovery or not....
