Unroot by using SuperSu:
SuperSu is an amazing tool that not only roots the phone for you, but it also helps you manage a rooted phone. The process of rooting your phone via SuperSu is pretty easy. All you have to do is download the app, then go to Setting and from there you need to look for the “Full Unroot” option. Tap on it and follow the on-screen instructions to root your phone. Simple and effective, right?
Use an App to Unroot your Phone
If you are not a fan of SuperSu, not a problem. You can always try out other rooting apps. These apps are simple and elegant. However, there is a downside to them. They might not work with every Android; therefore you would have to do a thorough search before you actually start to use one. Among the many, we prefer the Universal Unroot app. It is simple and has worked for a number of phones, but recently there are a number of Samsung devices that are no longer compatible with it due to complications with KNOX. It works well with LG phone, but due to eFuse the phone gets back its rooted status in not time. It is a kind of gamble, but there is no harm in trying.
You might think rooting to be a complicated task, but in this case, it is not. All you need is a file manager and getting rid of some rooting phone and you are good to go. We believe ES File Explorer to be an excellent File Manager. Follow the steps below to root your phone via File Manager.

Step 2: Head back to the System folder and this time look for “xbin”, tap on it. Search and delete both “su” and “busybox” files.
Step 3: Now go back to system folder>app and delete the Superuser.apk file.
Step 4: Restart your device and you are good to go.
Using OVER-The-Air Update
The traditional way of updating your phone was OTA update, however, developers these days have come up with other ways. But using them means, you would have to root your phone again, if you don’t want to do that, simply wait a little longer for the OTA update. This will help you retain your rooted status while keeping you up to date.
