Yesterday I took the phone into BestBuy to have them flash it with MF3 to try and get rid of the custom status and boot screen. They looked at me like I was speaking Chinese when I asked them to do this in the phone dept. Even the geek squad had no idea what I was talking about. They said they had no way to reflash the phone. All they could do was restore the phone within the settings...UHG!! So no luck there on going back to official status. I found instructions here in the forum that work like a charm for going back to official status and getting rid of the custom boot screen. I used theses steps. All thanks go to Senior Member - ou812bkewl
1. Re-root again using the same method you did before for MF3, then:
--a) Reboot, update SuperSU app and it's binary
--b) Reboot again, verify device status is back to"Official"
--c) Reboot again, verifying that, this time, the boot screen is back to normal again
2. Download a file manager app in the Play Store called "Total Commander" and enable "Root functions everywhere" in its settings.
3. Navigate to a folder called "/system/xbin"
4. Delete ONLY files in that folder with the word "busybox" within its filename or symlink path. You should end up with three files left. I did. Two of them are SuperSU related. DO NOT DELETE ANY OF THEM!
5.Open SuperSU and, in its settings, select the "Full un-root" option. Once SuperSU closes, reboot.
When you reboot, wait a full minute and check on device status. It should still say "Official" and you will be fully un-rooted.
So im completly unrooted and official...Im off to the AT&T store shortly to try and exchange this thing...wish me luck!
