Help with unrooting my phone

    I've been trying to find a way to unroot my phone, but nothing seems too helpful. I downloaded one .zip to my phone, but one of the steps is to go to settings>about phone>system updates, but the "system updates" option isn't even on the list.

    Also, I tried wiping my phone to factory, but that didn't work. I wiped it, got stuck in CWM, used exitrecovery and got back to exactly what my phone looked like before. I just want to unroot the phone.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    k the only way to unroot your device is if you downgrade back to zvb then update your phone back to zvd that's the only way to unroot your phone click on the esteem link its on the bottom and everything you need is in ATR

    Click what Esteem link... Where?

    And I already have ZVB, that's what I was told worked with my Esteem. I don't get it. Plus, I said nothing I've read in ATR seems to be working, so... I was was hoping someone could help me at greater length than just "go look at ATR"

    There's is an unrooter in the guide sticky. Never used it but the thread is stickied for a reason so i assume it works.

    All you have to do is delete a file, from what I've heard. The unrooter does it for you.
