Default S4-Samsung official

Good day

After rooting my s4(international version), it still reflects the following upon booting into recovery
Phone Binary: Samsung Official
Phone Status: Samsung Official

Is this normal, I mean - should'nt it reflect custom after being rooted?

Autoroot method used.

Depending on the method that you used to root your phone, i.e. CF-Root or some custom ROMs, your hidden flash counter is not triggered and your binary and status will remain unchanged and your Recovery is still the stock Recovery. To flash a Custom Recovery, see the PhilZ CWM Recovery - Dummies Guide
