Hi guys.

So I am very new to the Verizon Galaxy S3, and I didn't see this question anywhere that I looked in this section so forgive me anyways if it has been posted before.

After flashing the cm10 nightly from 2012-10-05 (October 5) I got the unauthorized software notice and I can't get it to go away.

Does anybody know how to reset it?

Help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

You will have to Odin back to stock and start over. That message means you did not unlock your bootloader.

I did unlock my bootloader. But now that I can't tether it might be a while to download the 1.2GB file. Thanks man!

If you used ez unlock, there is a chance u had the version that wasnt unlocking properly. That message def comes from flashing custom kernel and a secure aboot in my experience. I think the version everyone said for sure works was 1.2.

I had to use 1.1 cause 1.2 wouldn't open on my phone. :/

Yep, the dreaded triangle. I had use EZ Unlock v1.4 and it screwed me. Use v1.2 or v1.0 I had to Odin back to stock and start from there. All is running well now.

This was how I got it back to stock (rooted). I had to use that special tip in the grey box to work for mine.

I remember when I had this happen to me. I was a total noob at flashing when I got my S3. Tried to install some rom with custom kernel and kept getting this at reboot. Didn't know anything about unlocking bootloader

A month later and I'm a pro... Well maybe not a pro, but no more triangle of death!

At the time, though, I nearly **** my pants lol.

That happened to me, I thought sh#%, I gotta go to Verizon and act stupid. I Messed with it for a few minutes and figured it out. Then odined it back. You learn fast thanks to the geniuses in these forums.

Sorry for posting on an old thread but I though a link to Ez Unlocker V1.2 would be nice for anyone else having this problem. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=31819403

Had this happen to me last weekend. I thought my boot loader was unlocked but it turned out the superuser app I flashed (which I thought was an updated one) didn't have the thing to unlock the boot loader. Basically I just rooted and assumed I had it unlocked... Then flashed MOAR and after aroma froze 5 times and finally got the whole way through i met mr triangle. Haha
