Also, when i give the lock command it locks the bootloader.

As soon as I reboot the loader, it says LOCK STATE: UNLOCKED again

I was afraid I'd see that. The bootloader didn't lock. That usually means you emmc flash memory is bad. You'll have to rma the device.

Will they RMA a device that is modified?

Hopefully. Google seems to be pretty cool about it. If you have to go through LG they'll probably charge you.

So I guess there is no way to unroot it at this point? I called google and they want me to unroot it to return it.

I don't think there is going to be a way. But I'd try this. Download the bootunlocker script from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=40409356

Also have the twrp recovery image on your PC. Then boot into the bootloader. Try

fastboot boot recovery.img. Where recovery. img is the twrp recovery image. If that works it'll boot into twrp.

If it works adb push the bootunlocker script to your device and install it in twrp

So just an update, they are going to RMA the device. I told them everything I did to it and they are still going to take it back. Let's hope it is that emmc flash memory, it should be covered under the warranty as a hardware defect. Well I'm assuming it is .

Thanks for the help, unfortunately nothing seemed to fix it. Ah well we tried. I will update everyone on the process, so ppl in the future know if Google will honor that warranty.

Cheers
