If you didn't backup your EFS your best bet is to just warranty the phone with verizon
LG G2 VS980
TWRP
XDABBEB G2

The OP stated they're having difficulty going back to stock. That said, if they can get back to stock, I would take it back to VZW, too.

I've never had to take a phone back (knock on wood) but they'd be able to see that he rooted and what not. So kind of a general question, would it be best to delete some system file so the phone wouldn't boot at all? That way he could say it won't turn on and they (in theory) can't see the root?

OP would need to TOT back and then return it. If he TOTs it will wipe it completely and reset the "Rooted" check in Recovery. OP... with no EFS backup you have a wifi only tablet now. There is no way to save your phone at all. TOT back to stock and take it in for warranty.

The other option is to send it to LG instead of verizon. Another user awhile back wiped his efs without a backup and he couldn't get to stock, so he sent it to LG and they replaced it. It's a better option than Verizon, unless you can get to stock unrooted.

isnt the VS980 supposed to be unlocked for GSM use ?

I am in India at the moment...i have 3 Verizon G2 phones...SIM cards work fine on 2 of them...On the third one...it does not detect the mobile network...sim is detected ,coz it gives no alert...and when i search for networks...the networks are shown...it just doesnt connect to the network...the sim cards work fine in other phones...in the other G2 phones and in a HTC DROID DNA...so its not the sim at fault....

Have tried multiple SIM cards from Vodafone/Loop Mobile/Airtel...none of them work on this particular phone..

When i search for networks...im getting networks...but cant connect to them...most times it shows error while searching for network...

What can be the problem ?

I actually did this about 6 months ago. Called LG and they told me that if they find any indication that I modified the phone in any way, I would be charged $300. So I screwed the phone up so bad that it wouldn't get past a black screen that said "null". Never got charged
