    Did you root and flash a kernel?

    Did you buy the phone brand new from a carrier store or a major retailer? or did you buy it online?
    If it's showing as unlocked it means that someone has or has tried to flash something to the phone

    So it just started happening out of nowhere? That's weird...maybe a friend/family member did it without you being aware

    Sounds like a rooted device. Someone might have done it behind your back? Have you let anyone borrow it recently?

    Check in your apps to see if you have SuperSU. If you do then it has been rooted for sure.

    Even an attempt at rooting would do this, doesn't necessarily need SU installed

    If is a custom ROM doesn't that mean it's been rooted?

    I'm not all up to date on rooting, I've only done it once ever but the concept seems simple enough.

    Yeah, but I don't think he has a custom ROM. It just says the binary is custom, which means the flash counter (Knox) was tripped. This happens if you try to flash anything that isn't official firmware
