    My wife and I both have the Samsung s4 but on hers it says device status custom and on mine it says normal. What does the mean? I can't seem to get hers to show up on the laptop

    As far as I know it means a custom rom is on the device.

    Do you have a superuser app on the device? Some have an unroot option.

    I only want to Unroot because the pc won't recognise the phone but will charge it

    Did you try downloading and reinstalling the drivers from the Samsung website?
