So last night I just rooted my Note using towelroot, and decided I didn't want it since it had an issue with updating SU Binarys and that b.s. so I ended up installing Root Checker, Ginger Unroot (which I paid $0.99 for) and Busy box Installer.....well before I decided against thay I didn't want to keep root and was trying to fix the SU, I instlled.the.lastest busy box on to my phone, then turned around and removed busy box from my phone again with the same app.....well after I used Ginger Unroot, I finally check my phone with.Root Checker and it.said in of course did not have any kind of root whatsoever. So I was all happy until u rebooted my phone about 3 or 4 tines and realized the "Custom" under the open padlock icon never disappeared. Meaning I still got modded files on my phone ???? So now I'm really rely irritated that this Icon will not go away on boot up and that somewhere I still got modded files on my phone! I even used 2 or 3 different root checkers and they all say my phone ain't rooted! So can someone please help me out here and see what I'm doing wrong?

I think that everything associated with towelroot is removed by factory reset
