So you’ve rooted your Android device, and enjoying the benefits that comes with it. You know the saying, ‘You can’t eat you cake and have it’, it also applies to rooting Android devices. With an Android device rooted, you can’t get OTA (Over-The-Air) updates. Even if you do, chances are your phone will get bricked once you try to run such update.
This is the case with Infinix Hote Note, where many users have bricked their devices after trying to update with root. To prevent such scenarios it’s best advised to unroot your device before proceeding. Below are easy steps to unroot your Android device:
- Head to Play Store and download SuperSU. (Please ignore this step if you already have it installed).
- Swipe to the ‘Settings’ bar and scroll down to ‘Full unroot’.
- From the next option, select ‘Continue’.
- After this reboot your device, and it’s done.
Removing root privileges basically involves removing SuperUser.apk file and associated su binary files from the root folder of your device.
With your (root enabled) file explorer:
- Navigate to /system/bin/su and delete it.
- Or navigate to /system/xbin/su and delete it.
- Then proceed to /system/app/Superuser.apk
Once you’re done, reboot your device.
