How to unroot Android: Using ES File Explorer

I’m not sure if I’ve spoken about how good ES File Explorer is for a file explorer app, but it’s great. So great, in fact, that you can unroot your phone using it if you know what you’re looking for. Thankfully, with this little guide, you’ll know exactly what to do.

Download and install ES File Explorer from Google Play Store.
Launch ES File Explorer and tap the menu button.
Scroll down to “Tools” and then turn on “Root Explorer”.
Grant it root privileges if prompted.
Back on the main screen, navigate to your device’s root folder – you’ll find this as “/” in explorer.
From root, navigate to “system” | “bin”.
Find the “busybox” and “su” files and delete them. If you can’t find them, move on to step eight.
Navigate back to “/” and open the “app” folder.
Delete superuser.apk.
Restart your Android device
Your device should reboot unrooted.
