    Okay so recently I have rooted my phone and a couple days ago I unrooted it using SuperSu. Whenever I turn it on it says custom with the lock icon (I don't care about that) and I used rootchecker and it says no root access. I am just wondering is it fully unrooted to the point where I can update my phone with out bricking it (Apparently they are coming out with an update with Android L in a couple of weeks). I know it's a stupid question but I am pretty skeptical about it and I just want a definite answer since I don't want a bricked phone. Thanks in advance.

    Well, no that can't be said as fully unrooted I would say it would be better if you'd flash stock ROM again over to your device.

    Did you have a custom recovery installed while you were rooted, such as SafeStrap? If you didn't un-install the custom recovery before un-rooting, it will still boot as Custom. You may have to re-root to un-install the Custom recovery then un-rooting again with SuperSU.

    Knox shouldn't be tripped if the phone was rooted with towel root. I've rooted and unrooted my S5 3 times and I still have a 0×0 on the counter.
