Hi,
I am not new to rooting and have rooted my nexus 5 twice before using CF Auto root. However I unrooted it with the Wugfresh toolkit so now my bootloader is locked without any sign of tampering or ever having been rooted. I recently rooted my for a third time using towelroot. But i started experiencing some issues and am now unable to unroot it. Pls help me. NOTE: My Bootloader is LOCKED.

Use the setting to unroot in superSU.

Whatever your problem is, it isn't root causing it.

The Bank app still refuses to Install. Also I want to remove all signs of tampering due to warranty issues.

Believe me you're new to rooting if all you've ever used was told kits. If you want to warranty your device unlock the bootloader then flash the factory image. Flash the tamper zip and then re-lock and it'll be like new

You can reset the tamper flag with bootunlocker from the play store. Then just unroot using SuperSU. Towelroot doesn't put any unknown components on there. If it was stock before, it will be stock afterwards.
