It often happens that when you load your device with tons of root-requiring apps, it becomes unresponsive and you don’t have any solution but to remove everything and get back to the default system. The question is: how do you do that?
Unrooting is one such thing that flashes back the stock ROM on your device and helps you remove any unwanted apps or tools from your device. Since it gets your device back to stock, you’re no longer rooted.
If you’re wondering how you could unroot your Samsung Galaxy S5 Duos, the guide below should help you:
Files You Need
1. In order for your computer to be able to recognize your device, you should have the Samsung USB Drivers installed on your computer.
2. Download Stock ROM for your Samsung Galaxy S5 Duos to your computer. It’s the actual OS that powers your device.
3. Download Odin tool to your computer. It’s a tool that helps flash various custom files on a Samsung device.
