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!

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...
