    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.

    UPDATE:

    I actually need help, thanks.

    UPDATE:

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

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

    Yes exactly.
    Once you odin back, recovery it gone and returned to stock.
    Make sure you factory reset right after odining.
