How to Unjailbreak an Android Device
While it may give you more control over your device, rooting often voids your device's warranty and makes repairs extremely troublesome. Luckily, you can quickly unroot most devices in just a few simple steps. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy, things are a bit more complicated, but with the right tools, it will still only take you a few minutes.
