Root Restoring to stock


Android Enthusiast
Quick question ... Looking to restore my LG Tribute as I'm giving it away to friend that needs it. If I flash StockBoot.img, will that unroot the phone? Will install stock recovery and the full odexed ZV5 zip from here. Do I even need to install StockBoot.img if I'm unrooting to begin with?

I'll install the ZV6 update OTA, after I've unrooted it.

Never mind. Figured it out.

Fully wiped, then reloaded a ZV4 nandroid in twrp.

Installed ZV5 zip. Factory reset once inside... turned on WiFi to grab ZV6 OTA.

Installed Flashify to push stock recovery. Used unroot via SuperSU.

Rebooted, and then installed ZV6. Done!

Just testing a bit more before I ship the Tribute to my friend. Got to make sure everything sticks. :)
