After rooting ATT GS4 today, when I reboot the device, there is no longer a samsung Galaxy S4 on the first boot screen.
There is a unlock picture and a word "custom" under that. Anyone knows how can I get the original pic back to the first boot screen.
By the way, if there will be any rom having chinese display language for ATT i337?
Thanks!!

This issue has already been widely discussed in the existing root threads for the i337 root method. As of yet, there is no way to restore the boot screen to original, or install custom ROMS, or reset (if any exist) flash counters, or install custom recoveries. Give it some time and I'm sure all will be taken care of. It's always a good practice to read through 100% of the posts in threads before doing anything to your phone. Just some advice.

In order to remove this icon you have to do a factory reset but before you that you will need to delete busybox from system bin /bin/

Use root explorer, delete busybox
Back up all data on the internal memory.
Turn off the device.
Press and hold the following three buttons at the same time:

Volume Up key
Home key
Power key.

When the phone vibrates, release the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key.
When the Android System Recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.
Press the Volume down key to highlight 'wipe data / factory reset.'
Press Power button to select.
Press the Volume down key to highlight 'delete all user data.'
Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
When the master reset is complete, 'Reboot system now' is highlighted.
Press the Power key to turn the restart the device.

Then the icon will be gone

Yes it does. I just did it because I may be swapping my phone tomorrow. Download menu shows status as official too. I deleted the SU binary from xbin as well just to be sure.

I'm rooted. I don't get a different boot up sequence.
Perhaps it's because I installed SuperSU and deleted Superuser.

You also updated binaries first right after you installed supersu? Then you deleted supersu?

Because I followed that and it worked.

The only thing I'm getting upon boot up is this:

# Install Superuser
The su binary is out of date
