How to remove and delete root from Android?

Do you want to resell your Android smartphone? In this case, it is better to remove the root. For many other reasons, you may decide to reset your smartphone or tablet- problems, malware, inability to perform OTA updates.

How to remove and delete root from Android?

For example, if you need to take your phone to a help center, I strongly recommend that you remove the root from the device. There are several methods, this is one of the simplest and safest.

For this tutorial, we will simply use one of the SuperSu application features, which removes root access. The SuperSU application can be uninstalled manually without problems after using it. The procedure is extremely simple. The device used for this article is a Samsung Galaxy S7 but it works on all Android devices, of course.

How to check if your smartphone is already rooted

First of all, check if your phone is actually rooted. You can use an application called Root Checker to do this. Download Root Checker

Why remove root on Android?

Good question! In fact, the root of an Android device is good. In Europe, root does not remove the warranty unless the problem is caused by the procedure itself. However, if you don’t want to negotiate with service centers for 70 years, I suggest you remove the root from your Android device.

How to remove root from an Android device?

Below you have two methods. The first is to delete files, the second goes through the SuperSU application.

Method 1- Remove the root from an Android device by deleting the files

You can try removing the root with your file manager. The process is extremely simple, just follow these steps:

  1. Go to / system / bin then search for the file on and delete it.
  2. Go to / system / xbin and delete the file on.
  3. Then go to / system / app and remove the Superuser.apk file.
  4. Restart your device, the root should have disappeared.

Method 2- Remove the root from an Android device using SuperSU

Normally, all of you have installed the SuperSU application on your mobile as root. The application has a function that removes root access very easily.

1. Start the SuperSU application. If you have uninstalled it for any reason, simply reinstall it from Google Play. Download SuperSU

2. Click on the Settings tab at the top right, then click on Complete root removal. Then confirm with Continue.

3. Once completed, it takes a few minutes for it to perform various automatic procedures. You can then restart your Android.

4. Uninstall the SuperSU application.

Zero problems with your Android?

I found only one major problem with this method. If you have a custom recovery showing “Fix root – (/ system / xbin / su)”, it is possible that the procedure did not work for you- the only way to remove the root is to reinstall an official firmware.
