hi,
i have an att s4 that randomly switched my boot image to an unlocked padlock with the word custom under it. once that happened, it stopped being able to reboot.
the phone now has to be completely ereased (internal memory) and wipe system, cache, dalvik cache and date then install the rom plus gapps to turn on.
i did nothing to th phone other than switch roms once and i belive i went from cm 10.2 to a slimbean to test it out or something. now it will not restart and i am running omni 4.4.1 because thats the last thing i found on my sd.

hep!!!!!

Sounds like you did a full data wipe instead of a factory reset when changing ROMs... That is always a no no. I am not sure how to fix it short of using Odin to go completely back to stock and starting over.

Already tried that and the phone won't let it book the first time. It says that system is. It supported by Att or something. A yellow triangle thing comes up.

You have to read the OP of triangle away. That is part of the process on the S4.

Don't worry about unlocked bootloader.
