How to Easily Unroot your Android Device
Rooting is fun and yet, it is not what you are always looking for. For example, if you want to take your phone back to service, don’t you think that it’s better to restore the warranty of your device?
Or maybe you simply miss that pure Android system experience, you have just flashed a custom ROM that disappoints you or you are disturbed by some serious software related issues such as lags, excessive heating, bugs, force close errors, battery drain, screen freeze and more.
Things should not be like this and the beauty of Android is also about changing your mind.
To be more precise, it’s OK to want to unroot your Android device and here I am to help you.
Learn How to Unroot your Android Device with SuperUser app:
I know that you are here looking for a way to unroot your Android smartphone and the same SuperSU app that you have used from the start is the one that can help you this time too.
This will remove root completely from any rooted Android smartphone or tablet, so use the below steps:
- For the procedure to work, you must have SuperUser app installed, so download SuperSU app from Play Store;
- Now, install it on your device;
- If you have SuperSU app already installed, you can skip this step;
- Then, run the SuperSU app;
- Go to Settings;
- Don’t hesitate to scroll down to the “Cleanup” section;
- Now, choose “Full unroot”;
- Read the confirmation prompt and tap “Continue”.
- That’s it! You should reboot your Android phone to save all the changes that you’ve made and be sure that it will be completely unrooted;
- However, if you still see SuperSU or Superuser app in your drawer, just uninstall it.

- Hold the Volume Down, Home, and Power buttons to boot it in Download mode;
- Then, connect it to your computer via the original USB cord;

However, in case of having a custom recovery installed, let me be clear about the fact that these procedures have nothing to do with that. They will remove root completely and that’s all!
