This guide will teach you some methods on how to unroot your Android device.
unroot Android phone by using SuperSU
By rooting your device, SuperSU will be added to your icons (you may not have SuperSU depending on how you have rooted your device). You can unroot your device simply with the SuperSU app.
- Launch SuperSU
- Tap on the Settings tab
- Scroll down and select Full Unroot and follow the instructions
unroot Android phone by using a file manager
Root access is actually a bunch of files on your device. Get rid of those files and your device will no longer be rooted. To do this, you will need a file manager with root access such as ES File Explorer.
- Access your device’s main drive and look for “system”. Select it, and then tap on “bin”. From there, delete “busybox” and “su”. By the way, these might not be there. If that is the case, move on to the next step.
- Go back to the system folder and select “xbin”. If the files are there, go ahead and delete both “busybox” and “su”.
- Go back to the system folder and select “app”.
- Delete “superuser,apk”.
- Restart the device and it will all be done.
unroot Android phone by installing an OTA update
Software updates tend to break root access. Most users have to root again, but if you don’t want root it’s easy to simply install your next update. the only disadvantage of this method is that you have to wait until an update arrives for your phone and it only works when you use a stock recovery on your phone.
