Default [Q] removing evidence of rooting on Son device

Is removing evidence of rooting on an S-on device possible? I've seen the threads for complete reversal on S-off devices, but not on. So my thinking is that one must be S-off for the reversal to work, but wanted to ask.

Having issues with a section of my screen not being touch sensitive and want to bring it into Sprint with no concerns about then giving me trouble.

Thanks!

Default here's the answer, if anyone else wondered

I had been under the impression that there were special tricks involved in removing the "TAMPERED" label, but I guess that is only needed to hide the label while keeping root. Looks like full reversal is as simple as running the RUU.

If you unlocked the device, it will say "RELOCKED" once you lock it again, not "LOCKED" as it says originally. That's the evidence that it had previously unlocked, not the "TAMPERED" flag.
