Default Unrooting for return

I have Walmart Family Mobile, and I've also got a SGH-M919 that is unable to get a GPS lock. I want to return it and I'm very much wanting to be absolutely certain that it is in a state that will be acceptable to Walmart Family Mobile.

So far, I have:

I have used Odin v3.07 to install TWRP, then did a full backup. Then CF-Auto Root, I then flashed a ROM and reverted to that backup, flashed another ROM, and reverted to that backup again.

Now I know I can use Odin to put back the stock TAR for my device, but I do wonder, will Walmart Family Mobile see what I've done, my warranty then being void?

Do I need to remove TWRP? Is there a thread that will tell me everything I need to do? If not, I need the low down.


I actually need help, thanks.


Pretty please? The unroot/fix soft brick guide doesn't include anything about removal of TWRP or returning a device.

Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you” — when you already have it with you. ~Proverbs 3:28~

You can't "remove" TWRP, you have to restore the stock ROM that TWRP replaced.
