Default [Q] remove custom from device status

I have a uk s5 900f bought second hand and the device status shows custom ......I have returned it to stock using this G900FXXU1ANCE_G900FOXA1ANCE_G900FXXU1ANCE_HOME.tar following the guide here http://true-android.blogspot.co.uk/2...42-kitkat.html

all went well reset and wiped phone booted normally and custom rom/recovery are gone and phone set it self up as giffgaff after checking the right box upon restart

the only problem I have is that the device status shows as rooted and I cant use banking apps nor can I get ota updates ....any permanent way round this please

thanks in advance

I read once that if you flash the stock rom and it's showing custom, flash it again and it'll work
