Thumbs up [Q] What to do before give my phone to google?

Hi everyone !
My phone has recently shown a defect on the lower border of the touch screen. It's still less than one year so I will send it to google.

The thing is I have cyanogenmod installed, rooted etc. I am planning the restore the phone as it was brand-new: original rom, kernel...

I Have followed everything on the first comment of this post:http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...image-t2010312

Do you think that will be enough or I have to do something more in order to they won't realise i changed anything ?

Thank you all !

Last time I have sent my N4, I just restore the Stock Rom / Kernel, and lock the bootloader. Didn't have any issue.

Best advice would be to
Boot to recovery and make a full backup
Transfer this and anything else you want to PC
Reformat all in recovery (including SD data)
If you want to go overboard then format all with fastboot like such
fastboot erase system -w
fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase recovery
Then flash latest stock firmware through fastboot (run the flashall.bat)
Then lock bootloader
fastboot oem lock
Reboot , power off, send in for rma

"fastboot oem lock"

Don't need root, just connect the phone to your PC in fastboot mode and fire that command.
