[Q] Removing traces of Root
I have an Xperia Z C6603 which I purchased last month, updated to Android 4.2.2, and which is still under warranty.
I want to root the device so that I can make Nandroid backups among other things. I am going to use DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit and have the necessary files in place ready to use.
After rooting I will have to install CWM Recovery in order to restore any Nandroid backups should I need to. I do not want to install a non-stock ROM at the moment as I'm quite happy with the performance of the stock ROM.
If I need to return the device under warranty I shall need to restore the stock, non-rooted, ROM and I have a stock ROM C6603_10.3.1.A.0.244_Generic UK.ftf to do that if required.
What I don't understand, even after doing lots of searches, is whether restoring the stock ROM will overwrite the CWM Recovery as that would be a bit of a giveaway.
Can anyone explain please?
