Yes. You can flash the stock ROM back and it will remove the bootloader and root.

So I just bought one of these and as soon as I turned it on it burst into flames.

Kick-ass product! Finally something that does exactly what the name says it does. Five stars!

"Permanent root" means it doesn't have to be reapplied every time you boot, not that it can't be removed.

The link I posted is to return your device to completely stock, so it can be RMA'd. I have seen other instructions online to return your device to stock (i.e. No root, no bootloader)
