If anyone could help me on this I would greatly appreciate it!!

I used Chainfire's CF-Auto Root to unlock/root my Nexus5 (no custom recovery) with my linux machine. I would like to go back to stock because I'm taking the phone in to get fixed next week. I've searched guides all over the internet, yet not one has actually worked for me.

I really don't want to have to use a "Toolkit"
If anyone has done this, or knows of something I missed please let me know.

Much appreciated!
Thanks All

Go to "general" and read the return to stock sticky thread

In your superuser app in settings there should be an option for full unroot

First thing you should do is download BootUnlocker and reset the tamper flag. Then flash the factory image and lock the bootloader.

Unroot does not return the device to stock, all it does is revoke root access.
