How to remove rekeyed kwikset lock

I have a front single cylinder deadbolt that I would like to remove. I believe it is a Kwikset based on the type of key used to open the lock. There are no screws on the interior of the deadbolt. On the exterior, there are two threaded bolts with the area for what appears to be an allen bolt filled with some type of material. I tried to remove the thumb lever by inserting a paperclip into the small hole in the lever with no avail. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I doubt it is a Kwikset lock but I could be wrong. I think you need to remove the turnbutton either by an allen screw or by depressing the spring retainer. Then unscrew the rose to reveal connecting screws.

A picture will tell a thousand words.
