    I'm not super sure, but somewhere you could download the stock ROM for your G2, and go to your custom recovery, erase all of your data first, then flash the stock ROM.
    If you made a backup before, erase the current data and restore your backup. No computer needed I don't think. Then afterwards, you could delete the custom recovery from the storage on your phone.
    I hope this helps!
    And always check to make sure you don't have root access just in case you mean to unroot also.

    Returning to the actual factory images requires a Windows PC, but AKFL3TCH3R's suggest is very doable... Did you not backup your stock ROM before installing CM?
    Current Personal Phone: Google Nexus 4 on Cricket/Aio (Stock Lollipop with hells-Core Kernel)
    Current Work Phone: LG G2 VS980 on VZW (Snuzzo's Plain-Andy ROM)
    Current Tablet: iPad 4/Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
    Other phones "in the family": HTC One (M7), Moto G GPE, LG G2
    Previous/Retired Android Devices: HTC Aria/Incredible 2/Rezound/DNA, Samsung Stratosphere, SGS2 Skyrocket, Nextbook 8P

    Towelroot is done completely on the phone? What about needing the drives for the computer?

    Because I had a backup before I flashed SuperSU so when I erased the other ROM, I restored my stock ROM and deleted everything I downloaded.

    Not backing up may be the reason you have to use a computer I guess :/ sorry I wasn't able to help you all the way through.

    The only problem I had with that ROM was not being able to find the switch for turning the knock-on feature off. They probably updated it since then. Idk. It's a fun ROM, but I'm afraid of having a rooted device on contract haha.
