Secondly, I have rooted a phone in the past (my S2) so I understand the process and what can happen if not done correctly. My apologies if I have submitted a question that had already been asked. I'm on my phone now and not using a forum app. I have attempted multiple times to search but my browser keeps refreshing sending me in circles. I am new to the S4 and just wanted to know if rooting the phone causes the phone to display the yellow triangle on boot up. Perhaps I should wait until morning when I can view the forum on a computer. Thank you.
The phone app does suck. Rooting your phone, if the correct method for your firmware version is used, should not display a yellow triangle on boot. However, it might display "custom" with a padlock symbol. There is just entirely way too much information about this to post here, but if you want to search for "sysscope" when you get to your PC or do a visual search for threads that ask about "custom" or "official" in the thread title, you should find a lot of information about it. Mostly, check the General and Q & A sections for this information. There is also a lot of information about it in the thread I linked you to.
I know it was a single post I linked you to because it explains the correct way to go about finding information. As the post suggests, you need to learn as much about what you are doing as possible before you do anything to your phone. It does not matter what your previous experience was because this is a different phone and asking the question you asked shows that you need to learn more about it. The correct way to learn this information is by following what I said in the post I linked to you. This information should not be obtained from asking questions...it should be obtained by reading the available information that has already been posted in the forum(s). Good luck.

Make sure you read and understand the "PINNED" threads in the "General" and "Q & A" sections of the AT&T S4 forum BEFORE you ask for help. Use the forum's "search" function to find posts with additional information. You should not expect others to help you if you haven't tried to help yourself first. Also, read, understand, and follow the "XDA" rules.
