Some people prefer Android tablets because they can root them to get maximum control on the device. Remember, rooting can void the warranty of your device. Moreover, repairs become a hassle. Rooting makes installation of over-the-air (OTA) updates difficult.
Fortunately, you can unroot your android devices with some simple steps. Things may become complicated with the devices of Samsung Galaxy. Make sure to choose the right tools to complete this process.

- Select and delete “su” named files. Long press and hold on a file and choose “Delete” from a pop-up menu. You may not find “su” file in this section based on the process of rooting.
- Now press/system/xbin/.
- Delete the “su” file from this place as well.
- Choose and press/system/app.

Now you have to reboot your device. After this method, your device must be unrooted. Feel free to verify if it is unrooted by running (after downloading) a Root Checker application from your Play Store. If you have a tablet or any other device, save your sensitive information in this device before starting any procedure.
