Exclamation [Q] Exchanging unlocked (bootloader) GPE device... Anything I need to do?

I'm exchanging my GPE LG G Pad because of some screen light bleeding (I hear this isn't uncommon with LG displays) Thing is, my bootloader is unlocked and my device is rooted...Is there anything I should do before sending it back? If so, I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks XDA!

If it is a warranty replacement from LG, and you have a custom recovery, I would start by flashing the stock recovery.img via fastboot. Then I would unroot it (unroot option in SuperSU app). And finally I would relock the bootloader.

Thanks for the advice. I should be able to flash the stock recovery and unroot it but how would I reload the bootloader?

Terminal command: "fastboot oem lock"

Here (17-recovery.img) > http://downloads.codefi.re/autoprime..._16_partitions

That's from autoprime's thread > http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2564149

Be sure to thank him.

So I ended up just using the flashify app (awesome app btw) to flash the recovery and adb command to lock the bootloader. Afterwards I just unrooted it in SuperSU. All in all, super easy.
