    Default Verizon Note 2: Safest way to unroot

    I'm running Android 4.1.1, baseband I605VRALJB. I rooted using Exynos Abuse. What's the easy and safe way to unroot so I can go back to stock?

    Thanks

    If you are using SuperSU, it has an "unroot" option built in.

    So....I just uninstall Exynos Abuse and reset it back to stock? I'm doing this so I can turn this phone back in. I want it to be just like new as far as the operating system.

    I'm rooted using the same OS version (I605VRALJB) with SuperSU. Assuming you have it too, there is a "Full unroot" option in SuperSU. Launch the app from your app drawer, then under "Settings" scroll down; the option is near the bottom. It will delete SuperSU from the system removing root. You could then do a master factory reset to put the system back to a clean default state (doing so will also remove the Exynos Abuse app).

    Yes, I do have SuperSU. Sounds pretty simple. Thanks.

    I too am running Android 4.1.1, baseband I605VRALJB but have Superuser instead of SuperSU. I see an option for "temporary unroot" but not full unroot. What is the easist option for me to unroot and go back to stock?

    You could use a file manager such as ES File Explorer (with its root features enabled to get to the "system" directory) and delete the following files (then reboot phone):
    /system/xbin/su
    /system/app/Superuser.apk
