[Q] Galaxy S3 appears to be rooted even though it's not?
I have a problem with my GS3. It's brand new, and I've never rooted or flashed a custom rom or anything.
The status of my device switches from normal to modified frequently (Whenever it says Modified a reboot changes it back to normal, I can't define when it changes to modified). If I go into Odin Mode, the following is what I see:
PRODUCT NAME: GT-19300
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
If I reboot and go back into Odin Mode, System Status changes to Official.
I installed a few root apps to check if I could use them. None of them give me root access.
The root checker apps tell me I don't have proper root access. However...
BusyBox Installer tells me 'your device is rooted', but I can't install it.
Root Browser gives me full access to everything.
Is my device rooted?
I've wondered whether the phone I was given was secondhand and that the previous owner maybe rooted it and sent it back or something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
