Galaxy S5 says "custom" after flashing official ROM?
I have flashed an official Samsung ROM from SamMobile on my Galaxy S5 using Odin, and everything has been working fine for several months (and still is). However, I just discovered that it says "Current Binary: Custom" and "System status: Custom" when I enter Odin Mode. Sources I have found online says that it should say "Official" after flashing a ROM from SamMobile... what could be the problem?
That explains why you are seeing what you are seeing. Your phone has been rooted at least twice, (see Knox counter), and probably CF-Auto-Root kernel was used and installed SuperSU. Then you did not use SuperSU's unroot feature and still have a custom binary on your phone. You could re-root and then use the unroot feature prior to reflashing the stock Samsung firmware again. This, of course, will never, ever, reset the blown Knox fuse, security flag.
