These are the steps to unroot the T-Mobile LG G4 smartphone by flashing a stock ROM using the Flash Tool. Once you have flashed the stock ROM, you will no longer be able to install root-requiring applications from the Google Play Store. Likewise, you will not be able to install root-only apps from additional third-party sources. In theory, the G4 should be exactly how you found it for the first time out of the box. The stock ROM we are flashing here is the same ROM that comes from the official source.
