Tutorial: How to remove an Android's root



Removing root from an Android is simple if you know how to carry it out. In this tutorial we will show you how to remove root in a few simple steps. Keep in mind each of them so you do not have to regret later.

The mobiles are not exactly cheap and we can not afford to spoil them. So without further delay, let's see what the process consists of.

Remove root on an Android phone or unroot an Android terminal

Most rooted devices must come with SuperSU installed unless it has been rooted using one of the vulnerabilities. In which case the developer could choose to install his custom superuser application.


With SuperSU installed, removing root is very simple. Begin by opening the application.

Navigate to the configuration tab and scroll down on that page.

At the bottom of the page, search for "Full Unroot" and select it.
Let the application do its work and once you confirm success, go ahead and restart your device.

Check if you have removed the root correctly using a root verification application.

How to remove root with Universal unroot app



If your device was rooted using a vulnerability, it is likely that SuperSU is not installed. There are still several applications that can help you remove the root from the device. The best of them is probably the Universal Unroot application. However, there are some negatives too, Samsung devices do not work due to their internal security suite called Knox, LG devices can be shown rooted even after the devices have successfully removed the root, this is due to the inclusion of an eFuse. However, if you do not like to make adjustments around the device, this could be a good purchase at only $ 0.99


Remove root using a file explorer

For this you need a file manager compatible with root, we recommend ES File Explorer for its simplicity. Although this is one of the most complicated ways to remove root from a device, it is more likely to succeed even if the previous two have failed. In addition, it gives you a better understanding of what the root really is and how it works. Speaking correctly, they are just a bunch of files placed in a few system directories that help give you administrator rights, technically removing them will remove the root from the device. In addition, it is due to the placement of these files that OTA updates are hampered.


Just open the file browser and make sure that root permissions are granted. Next, go to the root directory or to the system directory. Find a folder called "system", open it and find the "bin" folder.

This is the folder in which the "busy box" and "Superuser" or superuser folders are located, find them and delete them. There is a small possibility that these folders do not exist for some devices, in that case, go back and look for the folder "xbin" and see if you can find the folders "busy box" and "superuser" and delete them.

Now navigate back to the system and look for an "app" folder and delete the Superuser file. apk Unless an error occurs, the device should be unrooted. Restart the device and check for root using a root verification application.


Remove root using an OTA update

Yes, it was mentioned earlier in the article that root access interferes with OTA updates, however, that's only when the device is updated in a conventional way, you can always choose to manually update the device once you get an OTA package newer than the one currently installed on the device. OTA updates usually interfere and break the root, resulting in a common rootless device.

However, the biggest disadvantage of this method is the fact that you have to wait until the manufacturer releases any updates for your device, this also makes the method unsuitable for many and it is also a success and missing for the rest. Be sure to uninstall the busy box, Superuser and all root-related applications before proceeding with the OTA update for a full unroot. Note that the OTA update may fail in some cases indicating the reason as "modified system, update can not proceed" if this happens, go ahead with the procedure.

Flase ROM by default

This is probably the best and safest way to remove the root of a phone , which can almost always ensure success. The system firmware includes everything that is needed, including the system folder that we modified to obtain root access, so by flashing a stock firmware the device returns to its virgin status without any modification.

If you are having a custom recovery installed, you can directly flash the system firmware using TWRP or CWM, this should completely reverse the device to stock and the device will be uprooted.

However, if you were a Thug and chose not to install a custom recovery, it is a bit more complex and you will have to boot into the bootloader using the adb command.


adb reboot bootloader


And then flash the common firmware using fast boot commands. However, both methods require that you have an unlocked boot loader, which is almost obvious if your device is rooted. This is also the most recommended method since, in most cases, stock firmware replaces custom recovery with stock recovery.

It should be understood that all data will be erased when you use the quick start commands, even if you flash using a custom recovery, it is recommended to perform a factory reset immediately.
