Question [Q] Booting into recover issue

Today when I installed the Clockwork Recovery after rooting with TowelRoot I am getting a message saying "System software is not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone. Please turn off your phone and go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store for help." Where do I go from here? Thanks so much for reading.

You soft bricked your device because the bootloader is locked. The only recovery you can run is Safestrap. Please research the forums before you turn your device into a paperweight.

Just go to download mode. And press volume down instead of up. Your phone will boot to rom
