I have to send in the tablet to Asus for repair. Can they detect that I rooted, unlocked the boot loader, and installed a custom ROM if I flash the stock images and relock the boot loader?

No, they can't, as there are no tamper flags on the N7. The only Nexus device that uses tamper flags is the N5, but even those are easily reset.

Great info. Asus claims on the phone they can tell and that warranty will be voided. But many members here claim they've never had any issues with a rejection. Now getting their actual problems resolved is a whole other issue!
