    I bought a phone that was unlocked and rooted. I want to know if there was a way to know if it has a custom ROM. I want to factory reset. :/

    It would be ok if you factory reset it no matter if it is custom or not. The only way to truly know if it is custom or not is to flash the last official image or wait until another OTA update and if it doesn't update then it is custom.

    Having a quick glance at that picture, you are either running an AOSP ROM or it's a GPE device?

    Edit: It's says its a GPE kernel so you have a GPE version. If it was a custom ROM it usually says the ROM name and version in the build number. In this case it's the official number for 4.4. Looks like you are on a stock GPE ROM.

    System could be tampered with tho so ota updates might fail, honestly no way to be sure until an ota, but yes that is the gpe stock rom
