Default [Q] Need help with my rooted, unlocked HTC One (M8). Please help.

Hello. I'm very new here, and I have a problem, and I'm desperate.
I rooted and unlocked my HTC One (M8) on Sunday. The reason? I wanted one stupid boot animation, that's all I wanted. I had no idea what "rooting" it and all that did, all I knew is that I had to do it to get my own animation. Not to say I didn't do my research. I searched lots and lots, reading a lot of articles and everything.
Now, it's rooted and unlocked, using SuperSU and TWRP (I think that's the right info, like I said I'm new to this). I've been trying for two days now to get that stupid animation to work, but to no avail. I've looked at it all.
Now here's my actual problem. Now knowing that I won't get the animation to work (I'm done with trying) I started to panic. I started realizing my warranty is gone, and that I'm dead if anything happens to it. I don't want that. I need it. I need help. It's lame, but I'm scared.
So my question is, is there any way to unroot and lock it? I just want everything back to stock. I want it how I got it. Please help. If there isn't a way, I guess I'll learn from my mistakes. But if there is a way, please help me out. I beg of you. I'd be more than willing to answer questions if you have any pertaining to my problem. Yes, I know I shouldn't have done all this, especially since I have no knowledge of it, but that all doesn't matter now. It's done and I need help. Step by step would be optimal, as, again, I'm new to all of this and don't really understand any of it.
Edit: Not sure if it's vital information, but I used the Sakitech step by step guide on how to root the HTC One (M8). I can't post the link, but it's the first video when you YouTube how to root it.
