From another site, maybe it will help..

Use root explorer and delete superuser.apk from the /system/app folder. Go to the Android market and download and install super user. Use root explorer again and delete su from /system/bin. Go to the market and uninstall super user.

Do a factory reset & you will be back to square one.

Go to the market and uninstall super user. (if it keeps saying uninstalling for 1 min or more restart phone and it should be gone)

Correct me if I'm not wrong, but you need to be rooted in order to use root explorer. Hence your still rooted. I'm not sure about about LG but I have sent rooted phones with custom roms on them to Samsung for warranty service which they have provided with no problems.

Root explorer does require root. The problem I think is that superuser is not able to be uninstalled if it's installed during the root process, as opposed to being installed seperately. I think this is even stated in the market description for superuser.

If I'm understanding it right..it seems like superuser is being deleted while root privileges are still active, then it is being installed "seperately" from the root when downloaded from market. After that, you should be able to delete it, then do the factory reset to erase traces of it.

I've never had to send a phone into LG, so I'm not sure about their policies on rooted phones. If I ever had to take mine in, though, I would more than likely uninstall superuser myself, so there would be no questions.

Hey guys I don't mean to make this go on and on, I will admit to this I am a noob, but I been trying to uninstall the superuser, I have both looked on this forum as well XDA and you both seem to have the same instructions for deleting it. I will be honest, in no way able to purchase the root explorer at this time, but I did download Astro File Manager.

What happen was I followed a video on youtube of someone who reviews all of boostmobiles phones listed here:

How to ROOT Boost Mobile LG Marquee note: since I am cannot post links due to being new user I will just say go to youtube, and in the address bar after dot com. type /watch?v=xOtRkNgRnKg and it should take you there. I promise I am not posting spam.


So when I rooted the phone, I checked it and it was rooted. About a month after that there was an update, and well before I knew it, supposedly if this makes sense to anyone, it was not rooted anymore, but google movie said it was since I could not get it to function right.

I was having issues with my phone and was to through support factory reset twice two different times. well supposedly google movies works, and the checker shows its not rooter, but yet superuser is there still, cannot uninstall the normal way.

Another step I took was to use the Astro File Manager, in which I navigate to documents/system/app folder I begin to look for the superuser.apk In astro I touch and hold then options on left come up to copy, move, rename, delete, and so forth, I choose to delete and then confirm it, problem is it is in process to delete their I get an this message "error deleting files" I go to try and reinstall is maybe thinking that is the issue, still can not get rid of it.

I am wondering what other options are possible at this point. Any advice would be appreciated. Thing is from what LG told me rooted phones are not covered in warranty, with that stated, I wanting to make sure my phone is not rooted for when I send it in, due to the battery over heating time to time.

deleting superuser from root manager did not help me...but instead i tried downloading apps to sd pro...after that try to uninstall superuser by that [NOTE:- DOING THIS WILL NOT DELETE THE ICON FROM THE APP DRAWER...]
then try unrooting your phone...the su icon should have been gone by now (it did in my case)...you can try factory reset just to be sure..


I REALLY HOPE IT HELPS YOU

Sik00, first off thanks for posting this method. I will keep it in mind next time I run into this issue.

In my case, I have a Android Tablet running Jellybean 4.0.4. What happened was that I installed most recent version from the Market available. Lo and behold! I immediately lost root. I know for a fact I had it rooted before. Root Checker confirmed before and after. Later XDA threads and threads here confirmed it.

So I tried different things but finally flashed my ROM image again to get my root back.

My point here is this. Like you said, if you still have root then the method you posted works. But I had installed the SuperUser separately from the market. I couldn't uninstall it. I did not try Root Explorer but tried ES Explorer instead. Since it was not able to get root privileges, I was not able to delete superuser.apk from /app/bin let alone su from /system/bin.

On a separate discussion, people did admit Superuser has a issue with Jellybean. Some suggested, going into Superuser's preferences and clicking auto response approval helps. I tried and didn't work.

Anyway I reflashed and now good. Warning for others. If you have ICS or Jellybean, don't use Superuser unless it came with the image. If possible make a NAND backup before installing Superuser.

This worked perfectly for me and is much simpler than anything else I've seen for ridding a droid of superuser.

Default Galaxy S3 - remove SU (unroot)

Hi all, first time poster and first time messing with android rooting (please be kind!)

I recently purchased a second hand Galaxy S3. The previous user had root access. Stupidly; on getting the phone I went into super user and selected unroot and uninstalled Superuser after performing a factory reset thinking it was just as easy as that to unroot the device. Then I went to update software and got told my device is modified.

I reinstalled super user but then get told the SU bin is not found. I got the SU bin but cant put it in the bin folder as I don't have permission (ES file explorer says its read only folder).

I have 3 options in my head:

1 - Get SU working then remove all root access then update to android 4.2 (currently on 4.1.2)

2 - Switch to a Cyanogenmod or something based on 4.2 (not sure if this is possible with the current level of root access I have/don't have I can boot in recovery mode and it says install from zip but I'm reluctant to do this then get halfway through and not have the permission I need and get stuck with a useless brick).

3 - live with the phone as is (it crashes randomly)

CWM is installed but cannot run as it says SU is not installed.

thanks for any help or understanding you can provide.
