    I've been doing some research and I just want to make sure that I have a correct understanding of this issue. I rooted my Note 2 using the ExynosAbuse.apk. I didn't unlock the bootloader, because all I wanted to do was remove bloatware, and tether. Under settings>about phone>status. My phone shows: device status modified.

    When I went into download mode to check the information there, it showed:

    Custom Binary Download: No
    Current Binary: Samsung Official
    System Status: Custom

    I don't have a custom recovery either (i don't even think I can having not unlocked the bootloader).

    So is my understanding correct that:

    1. triangle away would not solve my modified status issue because evrything is stock and;

    2. that if I need to return the phone unrooting using exynosabuse.apk and doing a factory restore would be sufficient?

    Thanks guys!
