Info 2 Things to do before sending phone to Sony Repair shop

I will be sending in my phone for warranty repair, and wanted to know what all should i do before i send it in. It already has stock software installed by PC companion, and also the kernel which comes with PC companion. Is there anything else i need to take care of before sending it in?
My bootloader is locked, i have rooted the phone before and was using the Black edition rom.

Thanks! already got it out. I was hoping developers can chime in if i need to use an app like triangleaway for samsung to reset count, or something of that sort.

I also see a folder that i am not familiar with, :
Internal storage\0\Download
Internal storage\0\obb
Internal storage\0\0\Download

Is this normal? Let me know if i need to clean /wipe/ reset any other part of my device, that is left even after doing repair using PC companion.

also in service menu, i found Rooting Status: Bootloader unlock allowed: Yes

can someone chime in if this default.

No, no, Sony don't count your flashing activity!


Devices in use:
Xperia ZL eXistenZ Ultra 4.0
Xperia SP eXistenZ Ultra 2.0
Xperia Tablet Z => Stock deodext 4.3 (waiting for eXistenZ)

This is normal and says, that you can unlock your bootloader!


Are there some other data's inside this folder? I think no!
I think there is nothing to do! Just send it to repair!

Just got my phone back from repair without any problems.

I restored TA (so bootloader also got locked), deleted internal SD, unrooted via SuperSU-App and did a repair installation via pc companion.

I think if you've restored your ta, and wiped everything you should be good...
