Luckily, you can quickly revoke root access on your Google Nexus 6P with a few simple steps. Yes, this is possible with the right tools and the operation takes no more than a few minutes.

Before starting the actual unroot procedure, there are a few things that you must be careful about. First of all, prepare your computer for the operation, so temporarily turn off the security tools and make sure that the Google Nexus 6P USB drivers are already installed.
