    Right now, when I boot my phone up, it says "This build is for development purposes only blah blah blah"

    I want to return my phone, because the power button is sticky, but my phone is in this developer mode, and it's unlocked and what-not.

    How do I put my phone back to stock so verizon will take it back and not know I unlocked it? I found a method of locking it, but that doesn't solve my "this build is for development" issues, and when I lock it, instead of saying "locked" it says "relocked". I'm assuming verizon won't like it if it says relocked.

    sorry for the late reply,the holiday has been busy!

    is your device s off? if not,then s off is the first step to eliminating the relocked watermark.

    the red text will disappear as soon as you run an ruu that restores the stock recovery,kernel,and rom.

    In a nutshell:
    -change lock status back to locked(theres a thread in the forum here,I can't link atm)
    -run an ruu
    -let phone ota to current
    -turn s on(optional.. I'd personally leave it s off)

    Holler if you have questions :)
