Default Returned LG G2 for EFS issue

So I had a bad kernel flash and it wiped my EFS partition and the phone now randomly reboots every minute or less. I had backup imgs of the EFS when I first rooted, but unable to root... Since the phone keeps rebooting before the root process can finish. (I already restored phone back to stock tot) .

So left with no way to restore my EFS backups I called LG and filed for repair and luckily it was still covered so I mailed it out today.

Has anyone ever returned to LG for repair for EFS issues? If so did they return your original phone? Or did you get a refurbished one back? Just wanted to know what to expect...
