    Default Your device has been modified. Software updates are not available.

    I'm getting this error when trying to update my system on my Samsung Galaxy Grand GT-I9082.

    My current version is 4.1.2 and I want to update to 4.2.2, but I keep getting that error. I tried wiping the cache, but this did not solve my issue.

    My device has never been rooted. I bought my phone new and packaged and I did not root it. The status says that it's custom and I can't figure out how to solve this. I've read around that removing the SD card and updating works, but I don't have a SD card in my phone.

    Seeing that I'm a total beginner, I don't know what I'm trying to use to update. I go to the Settings -> About Device -> Software Update -> Update; Then I get the error I mentioned in the title.
    Maybe it's worth mentioning that I did a "Factory Data Reset" once.

    Any help would be appreciated.
