Rooting your android lets you fully access and change things. It is equivalent to having administrator rights on your computer. Although you can do a lot with a rooted android device, there are some downsides too. You cannot receive official software updates, some apps are forbidden to run on a rooted device and if you do not know what you are doing, you may brick your device. Here’s how to unroot Android.
How to unroot Android: Using SuperSU
SuperSU is a must have app for any rooted device. Most of the time it is automatically installed when you root your device. Additionally, you can also use this app to remove root access. Open the app and you will see various tabs. Slide right till you reach the Settings tab. There you will find the Full unroot option. Tap on it and you will be prompted to unroot your device. The app will close if you chose to continue. After a while your device will restart and you will no longer have root access. Make sure you delete the app after its done.
How to unroot Android: Using Universal unroot app
This app does exactly what its name suggests. It is a paid app but if SuperSU was unsuccessful to remove root access, this app will succeed. This app is pretty straight forward. Open the app and you will see a button with UNROOT written on it. However, some manufacturers like Samsung and LG make it hard for this kind of app to work; so I suggest you do some research and find a specific method to unroot your device.
How to unroot Android: Flashing stock firmware
The foolproof method to completely unroot your device is to flash stock firmware. Each device has specific method for flashing firmware, so Google it first. Also, make sure you have the right firmware. Flashing a wrong firmware will brick your device. Search your device on XDA forums to find the method for flashing.
