Default [Q] Help please with 'unroot'?

Hi all, I'm selling/trading my g2 which I rooted using iwo root so that I could change colours/status bar etc, I've just done a factory reset but when turning back on it popped with team win recovery project jargon like an old computer which doesn't look 'standard' is there a way I can remove this?

Please help a non techy guy!

I'm on a D802 in the uk on kitkat 4.4.2

Best way would be to use the LG flash tool and kdz back to stock. It will wipe/replace all partitions with stock files and your phone will be restored like when you first pulled it out of the box.

Really sorry for being dumb, but how do I do that?

Make sure you download the proper file for your phone (model number/android version). If you don't know what android version you're on, go to settings/about phone and look at android version. Then download proper file.

Ok thank you, my phone is on O2 but I believe it is also unlocked as both a Vodafone and EE sim card work in it, so do I download the:

http://storagecow.eu/Xda/LG 20G2/Stock/UnitedKingdom/UK O2 16GB 20 KitKat D80220D_00.kdz

Or

http://storagecow.eu/Xda/LG G2/Stock/United Kingdom/UK OPEN 16GB KitKat D80220D_00.kdz

It's just I'm afraid of bricking my phone! And I'm not that clued up on this stuff, do I follow the Rom kdz method or the one below that?

That I'm not sure of as I have a different variant. You might want to ask in the d802 Q&A thread. Just post links to both those files and I'm sure someone with the same phone will be able to identify what file to use. Good luck!
