It’s no longer news that rooting most android phones are very easy. There are even loads of one-click apps which aid in making most android phones very easy to root. Also, it’s no longer news that unrooting an android phone is also easy but how many have really seen this in action?
Personally, I haven’t had a chance to unroot an android phone (Maybe because I don’t see the need to) but I just had to do a quick experiment in regards to getting this done and I am happy to make known to you that unrooting an android phone is very much easy and here on this post, I will be showing you how to.
There are many reasons why you may want to unroot your android phone. I am sure you should know by now that rooting your android phone voids your warranty and your phone company’s free customer care service may not really help you if they realize that you rooted the phone or you explained to them that you root your phone.
Besides, some apps do not tend to work with rooted android phones. An example of such an app is the entrust OTP APP. However, amongst all, there are more positive reasons why you may want to root your phone than un-rooting it.
Unrooting Any Android Phone Using SuperUser
First and foremost, take a look at the screenshot above. Take note of the time also and as you can see on the screenshot above, it’s stating ROOTED which means the device is already rooted.
Steps To Unroot Android Using SuperUser App
==> Make sure you have the SuperUser app installed. I would recommend downloading it from the Google play store. If you do not have it on your android phone, you can download it from HERE.
==> Launch the SuperUser app, tap on the Options button, and Tap on Settings.
==> Under settings, tap on Un-root and you should get a prompt to download SuperCleaner. Choose to download the app and wait till the download is complete and then choose to install.
==> Navigate back to the SuperUser app and navigate to the un-root option under settings from the SuperUser app. The SuperCleaner app should be launched and you should automatically be taken to the more tools page.
==> Tap on the Un-root tool and choose to grant. You should get a notification stating Superuser app will be cleaned and your phone will be un-root. If you still want to unroot, tap on Un-root and you should get a notification stating un-root is successful.
==> Reboot (Restart) your android device and you can use the root checker app in verifying if the unroot process was successful.
Another simple method to un-rooting an android device is by simply re-installing its stock ROM but then, that could be time-consuming if you do not have the stock file already installed on your computer.
Besides, going through having to flash in the stock rom will clear all the files on the phone. You should only seek this option as an advanced option.
Do note, most of the time, this step will only work if you used the same app in rooting the phone in the first place. In a case whereby you rooted your android phone using Kingroot, here is the tutorial you should follow.
