Default Back to stock

Hey all just wanted to verify some things and sorting through all the threads is becoming a bear. I cracked my screen the other day and while at work a spark landed directly on the FFC lens. I'm going to be bringing my phone in to best buy for insurance and want to go back to stock.

Currently s-off twrp 2.6.3.0 running beanstalk 4.4.2 1/3/14

My question is the order for returning.

1. Backup SD card to computer
2. Flash stock recovery
3. S-ON
4. run RUU

Thanks for the help!

1. Backup SD Card.
1.5 S-Off
2. Run RUU. The RUU file will replace your custom recovery with stock. I wouldn't worry about S-off or S-on. They don't see that unless they reboot the phone.

I just had to return mine for a replacement, the ruu I ran said to relock the bootloader before running the ruu, witch I did and it ran fine, so I'm not sure if it will run if you don't.

Also I couldn't get fastboot to work on my windows 8.1, I had to use my old vista laptop.

I didn't soff, I read it was risky.

Thanks for the help guys, so you are saying I shouldn't have to worry about s-off? I did it just in case I wanted to flash a Google edition ROM, never got around to it.

So its

1. Backup SD card
2. Lock bootloader
3 run ruu
