Default [Q] how to lock bootloader

I have a ATT galaxy s4 and I was wondering how I could lock my bootloader, it keeps saying custom when I turn it on and I want that gone.

That doesn't mean your bootloader is unlocked. This can happen when you root too.

Are you sure you know what you are talking about?

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.

Just like Whizzpopper said, if you are rooted that will cause the Custom screen to show when you boot. You have to unroot. I know Rom Toolbox has a feature that would allow you to change that screen to a custom picture/animation, but not sure if it is compatible with the S4.

Try Triangle Away to get rid of the custom screen and rest the flash counter.
