1. Install Stock ROM

This is the most conventional and the easiest method to unroot your Galaxy phone. However I am not explaining the steps in detail here because I assume that those who know how to root a phone also knows how to install a stock firmware using Odin without any help.

Only thing you need to remember is that always select the firmware with the same or higher binary. Also you need to select all the buttons on Odin like "BL", "AP", "CP" & "CSC". Skip the button "USERDATA" though.

Do you know that you can unroot your phone by deleting a bunch of files and folders on your phone? Fortunately we can. This is the most easiest method to unroot your Galaxy Smartphone. This method may not work on all roots though.

What you need here is a file manager with root access.

Open the file manager and tap on "System"-> "bin" folders and delete busybox and su. However if busybox and su are not there, go back to "System" folder and goto "xbin" folder and delete the busybox and su folders there. Now again go back to the system folder and delete "superuser.apk" file there. Once all done please restart your Galaxy Smartphone to unroot it.

You just need to open the Magisk Manager app and select "Uninstall Magisk" button in the app and by select "Complete uninstall". Your phone will reboot and the root will be uninstalled.
