Question Custom Unlock Icon on Boot, what does it mean?

I have what I think is an unusual booting splash screen. It is the first thing to show up after turning on.

I also booted in to the Odin menu just to see the status and took a picture of that.

I just got my phone today and have done nothing other than install normal applications, I haven't tried to root or flash anything.

I watched a video of some other verizon SGS3 owner turning on their device and that unlocked lock icon and custom do not appear.

Anyone know what this means?

What I believe is normal boot up image (5:13)

You will probably get a better response if you post this in Q&A. I don't know the answer to your question though. I am curious what they answer is.

DONATE TO ME
it comes up once you've flashed something using odin
if you'll notice on the third image, next to "SYSTEM STATUS:" it says "Custom" this means something other than something official has been flashed to it

i'd really like to know how you did this

Assuming you bought yours brand new from the store, I'd go back. But first I'd try removing the microsd card and booting up. Then try the SIM card, then boot up again. If its still the same, something is up with your device. It keeps booting up into download mode. :S

I don't think he was saying it boots into DL mode on its own, just that he went into DL mode to confirm he's not running anything custom, which it appears he is not.

Strange that it would show the custom boot image when you're running the official ROM. I don't know that that's a bad thing, or that it's worth returning the phone. Might be worth calling Verizon and talking to them about it. At the least you then have a record that your phone was doing that from the beginning, so if you have to return it later on after installing custom ROMs, you can say it was always like that

We need a dump. It might help with Root.
