Default need to restore phone to complete stock for warranty

i hardbricked my phone flashing the nd8 modem on my virgin mobile phone. got it jtagged, now have to send into vm for warranty. i need to flash the stock firmware, reset flash counter, and unroot it. my concern is when i flash the firmware with knox on it, will it detect my root and brick my phone, or just unroot it in the flash? im just so hyper paranoid now since i bricked my phone. any info or insight on how or what to do to restore my warranty or about the knox flash would be greatly appreciated, thnx

It'll just unroot. You should be able to just Odin ND8 to it to return to stock, right? I don't know much about JTAG, only that it's for some bricks.
