This worked for the Yoga 2 10" (using method T3):

I'd expect it would also work for the Pro.

when you "returned to stock"  did you flash the stock firmware or unroot?  if you did unroot, did you use the supersu cleanup option or vroot or something else?   i've rooted my 1380f with the cwm-temp method and am wondering what the best way is to prepare it to get the lollipop update.

just reflash with intel's phone flash tool, and all is getting back to stock. no need to clean or other stuff... just select the flash.xml (not others xml). if you peek inside the file you will see that he is creating and formatting the partitions again so whatever was on your emmc (tablet's equivalent hd) is gone. as long as you didnt mess around with bios reflashing with that xml  will get you back in time to the place you were when you first started your tablet (assuming you are flashing the same rom)

Lenovo implemented Secure Boot (or as we know it better as 'locked bootloader') so as long you didn't mess with bios (and i don't think you did) theres no way anyone could tell that the tablet was rooted sometime. the rooting method used now is "online" after the secure boot has done his job of starting the kernel.

not my case coz i will sodomize my bios to bypass the secboot (i want to install linux and windows, just for fun, and this tablet would be fun for me running linux and a chroot with android, so that I WILL SECURE BOOT android :) ) and anyways i can get back anytime (worst case i have a flash burner)

Yes, the method works on my Lenovo Yoga 2 1050L. I can now use my 64GB external memory for installed games and I can finally used my DS3 controller as a gamepad.
