[Q][S4][VZW] How do you get rid of the Samsung custom unlock splach at boot up?
Instead of reading Samsung Galaxy S4 on the initial splash screen on bootup, my phone now says Samsung the picture of an open unlocked padlock and the word custom. Searches suggest that triangle away may fix this problem.
1. If I can use triangle away on my phone to remove this message and return to the normal bootup splash screen
Rooted Samsung GS4 for Verizon, VZW updates disabled with Titanium Backup, MDK
No custom ROM
I did not use goomanager until after I noticed this
The problem was noticed sometime after I enabled the WiFi toggle (and hotspot and air gesture) which is my guess to what caused it
Other than that I have been installing various apps that require root between noticing it and now (could these have caused it?)
I installed TWRP just last night per droidmodderx's youtube guide and made a backup but I have not flashed any ROM and don't really plan on it at this point.
So is my ROM stock Samsung even though I enabled the toggles? The guides for Triangle Away for the GS4 all say I need an "unlocked bootloader" but it is my understanding that at this point in time, that does not exist, there is just the loki workaround.
Thank you for any help or suggestions you can give me. I would like to make a TWRP backup as close to stock rooted system as I can (maybe its too late) so I can use ROM Toolbox to start making modifications to my phone, but I don't really want to install a custom ROM right now. So I think I should try to get rid of this "custom unlock" splash screen before I go forward.
