    I've never rooted or anything and don't know why the software status shows modified. Also noticed that in the system recovery it shows modified in the upper corner. I noticed this after encrypting my phone and wiping my phone. It asked me to decrypt my phone first so I just failed the 10 pin attempts to wipe the phone. I also lost the 2 preloaded videos that show off the awesome screen. Is this normal that it shows modified. I thought I remembered it showing official before. What gives? It is a vzw G3 with the current 4.4.2 software. Should I be worried? It doesn't show "this device has been modified" when checking for updates. I'm freaking out though.

    I consider this a display glitch, probably because of the encryption and factory reset.

    Don't fret, though! Since the update check is OK and you never rooted, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I ended up forcing the vzw lollipop 5.0.1 update. However it still showed modified. I love the new features of lollipop but it was a little laggy and buggy even after a factory reset after update. So I flashed the stock 10b vzw firmware and it shows official. Then I checked for updates and downloaded and installed 12b. Looks like I will wait for vzw to release the lollipop update.
