    First of all I want to be clear that I am not tech savy as they would say and my phone was rooted by a friend. I am sorry if somebody finds this question dumb or something similar but I just don’t understand these things well so If someone can help me and give me a serious answer I will be very thankful.

    My phone was powered off so while trying to turn it on I accidentally went to the download mode for custom os and i got this message in blue backround,

    - Warning a custom OS can cause critical problems in phone and installed applicants

    if you want to download a custom OS press the volume up key

    Otherwise, press the volume down key to cancel.

    So i pressed volume key down to cancel. Does going itno this mode remove root access or not?

    It sounds like you have a Samsung. If that's correct, then yes, going to that mode is part of removing root. Pressing Volume Up on the Warning screen will take you to a screen that says Downloading, and that's the firmware flashing mode. And flashing a full official factory firmware package is how you remove root

    No
    That mode only for flashing stock firmware or custom ones .
    If you want to unroot flash the stock firmware only.

    Correct. But even if you press Volume Up, the un-rooting doesn't happen automatically. That just puts the phone in firmware flashing mode. In order to unroot, you have to actually do the flash - using a computer
