You can unroot your Android device in many ways. In this post, we will see 2 simple ways to unroot an Android phone.

The first method is using SuperSU app and the second method is unrooting manually.

I recommend you to take a full backup of your data before unroot. Let’s get started.

Tap on “Full unroot” option. Tap continue on the confirmation message.

Reboot your device. After your device booted up, uninstall the SuperSU app from your phone.

Navigate to /system/xbin.

Find the su file and delete it.
