{Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III SCH-I535 4.1.2, rooted.}

Hello. So I rooted my phone^ and I updated some software or something and I got this error message: “System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone. Please turn off your phone and go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store for help.” I read online and it says something about a bootloader being unlocked, or something of that nature. I don’t really understand that stuff very well, so I’m not sure what I have to do in order to fix this phone. I don’t want to replace it. Thank you.

    You have to try to unlock the bootloader again using EZ Boot v1.2. More information with a link to the EZ Boot found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=31819403 This is not an uncommon issue since it is Verizon's way of saying "We stopped you from rooting your device. Being it back to us so we can keep you locked." http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1922570 Don't be alarmed and don't take it back to Verizon. Just use the mentioned software to unlock your bootloader and it should fix this error.
