Follow this thread to restore your phone to stock.

This will wipe everything (including internal SD card) and return your phone to the same state as if you were pulling it out of the box for the first time.

Not exactly... After this method the phone status remains "rooted" when booted in download mode. Couple of users reported this problem...
Edit: here's the fix http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=52991286

That tool does not unroot your phone. All it does it trip the root flag so when you boot into download mode it says unrooted. It is meant to be used so that if you take your phone into your carriers store and an associated wants to check if its rooted, it will say its unrooted when the associate puts it in download mode, but it is in fact still rooted. This DOES NOT unroot the phone.

See attached screen shot:

Sure. But after you flash kdz file with flashtool the phone isn't rooted anyway, although in DLM it states "rooted"...
As I undrstand it, somehow after you flash kitkat kdz it misses some files and status "rooted" appears in DLM. Explained here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2703501

Interesting. I never had that happen when I used it. I'll keep an eye on this thread in case something's happens. Thanks for sharing.
