    Pretty much exactly as the title says.

    About 4 or 5 days ago my phone randomly rebooted itself and i noticed that it showed the unlocked padlock icon and custom, then it boots into the yellow arrow usually stating that unauthorized system software was found on my phone. There is also a message at the top left saying either Security Fail: Kernel or Security Fail: Recovery (when i try to boot into recovery mode, obviously.) This has been happening constantly for the last 5 days. Verizon won't help me because it boots into custom so they think i rooted my phone, which i have not done.

    More info:

    I have factory reset my phone twice already, to no avail.
    I have tried to delete the cash from recovery mode (when it works)
    I have NOT rooted my phone, ever, nor has it ever been rooted.
    My phone is in the default runtime and i have not touched any developer options.

    TLDR: Phone reboots randomly, its in custom mode for no obvious reason, unauthorized software found doesn't boot every time.

    Update: I have tried flashing the ROM via ODIN and it is still in Custom mode

    If you go into "Settings", "About device", I think it should tell you there which operating system is installed, or which operating system it thinks is installed. Phil

    My phone is currently running KitKat if that is what you are asking.
