Default [Q] Return M8 to stock for waranty

Hi,

My phone is rooted, s-off, with TWRP and running ARHD. I have hardware issues with it, and probably would have to return it for waranty (yes, I know it might be a longshot, since the bootloader is unlocked).

I can't seem to find a step by step guide to doing this as right as possible with the International version. I can't find an RUU either, and for some reason my stock nandroid is gone. So I have to get it as stock as possible with these things in mind. I haven't changed the CID. It's HTC__Y13.

What steps do I hva to take, and in what order?

- Remove tampered banner (if present)
- Flash stock unrooted ROM
- Flash stock recovery
- S-on (from s-off), is this need, and if so, how?
- Lock bootloader

All help is much appreciated!

As far as I can see, the things I need to do is, and in this order:

- Remove tampered banner (it's not present since I removed it when "s-off'ing") - (How to here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708565)
- Flash stock rom - (Found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2694994)
- Flash stock recovery - (Found on the link above as well)
- Lock bootloader - (this should tell me how, right? http://www.andromods.com/unroot-lock...er-status.html)
- LEAVE it S-OFF. Changing to S-ON might not be the best idea, it seems. Any ideas on this? - (Read about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2729139)
- Factory reset (just in case)

Oh, and of course, clean all personal stuff, images, etc from the device.

Can anyone confirm this is the way to do it, or any other way it should be done?

I'm using the International HTC One M8.
