How to exit Factory Mode on S3?
So I have a rooted S3 running on the Omega Rom v46 and one day, I realised that my lockscreen isn't there anymore, like when I press the sleep/off button after my screen turns black, it brings me back to where I left off, without going through the lockscreen. I tried to reboot my phone and realised that the power menu isn't there also, a message pops up telling me that I'm in "Factory Mode" and I have to return to "User Mode" or something like that, but how do I do that? I've read in other forums that I should use Terminal Emulator, but when I type in "rm/efs/FactoryApp/keystr", it tells me that it's not found, my efs folder is missing "FactoryApp", so how do I exit Factory Mode and back into User Mode?

Re: How to exit Factory Mode on S3?
I have the same problem with an S3. Just figured out it was some "factory mode" thing but took me a while. kept freezing up on me. I finally installed twrp via odin and flashed a md4 rom and now it still freezes but only twice 'crashing" factory test then it works fine
but repeats each boot up and same thing. No lock screen and holding power just turns off the phone NO off/reboot menu
and one time I saw a box flash up between factory test crashes and in red letters said something about factory mode (I could not read it fast enough)
factory resetting battery pull etc.. has ZERO impact at all on this. in fact with other roms I can't even use the phone it freezes up about 2-4 seconds after finishing booting to the UI. at least with this md4 rom it "crashes out" the factory test thing that is freezing the phone.
