Maybe you seek OTA updates for your Xiaomi Redmi 1S but can’t get them as your device is rooted? Well, unrooting the said device is as easy as pie. Once unrooted, your device should work as it did when you bought it off the retail store and you should start receiving the official updates on your device.

One thing you should keep in your mind before unrooting is: your device won’t accept root-requiring apps anymore. Who cares for these apps when you’re getting a really major software update for your phone? So here you go:
