This guide will show you the steps to unroot your Samsung device. For the tech geeks out there, gaining administrative privileges by rooting their device via Magisk has always been their go-to choice. And why shouldn’t it be? After all, it gives you the ability to welcome abode tons of mods and tweaks including the likes of Magisk Modules, Viper4Android, and LSPosed Framework, overclock and underclock the CPU by flashing a custom kernel, and carry out a slew of other tweaks.

Moreover, tech enthusiasts are also aware of the fact of drawbacks accrued while rooting, with the failure of the SafetyNet and Play Integrity Tests being the two most concerning factors. But if we talk about Samsung devices, then these drawbacks are just the tip of the iceberg. There exists a plethora of additional caveats and issues that you might or rather will have to face in this rooted ecosystem.

Apart from the usual ones mentioned above [failing tests], the device also tends to undergo a reset and the Knox counter gets tripped resulting in numerous banking and payment apps not working along the expected lines. But the worst part is that most of the issues will still remain even if you go back to stock and relock the bootloader!

So truth be told, there’s not much to gain even if you unroot your Samsung device, it’s just that the negative effects of root will be slightly minimized in a non-rooted OS as opposed to a rooted one. So with that glimmer of hope, let’s make you aware of the steps to get this job done.

As opposed to other Android devices, simply doing a Complete Uninstall from Magisk wouldn’t get the job done. Likewise, you cannot just flash the stock AP via Odin, instead you’ll have to flash the entire firmware [AP, BL, CP, and CSC] via Odin and only then your device will be permanently unrooted.

Moreover, we will be using CSC instead of Home_CSC because a data wipe is a must. So please take a backup of all the data on your device and then let’s get started. Thedroidwin will not be held responsible if something happens to your data or device after performing the below steps.
