A person can perform unroot on android device using Supersu. The app interface has the option to perform this action. If the app becomes compatible on the installed system, it can easily work. However if you find any problem in unroot, it has to be done manually.

  • Download and install file manager ES Explorer or a similar one.
  • We have to delete several files from the rooted system. These files are “su” and “daemon_su”. The possible directories in the root are –

/system/bin

/system/xbin

  • We have to go inside directories and delete two files. It is possible because we still have root rights.
