    I have a Samsung GT-N8013 note 10.1 I bought used off eBay. It appears to have been rooted. It has superuser and WTRP on it. I'm completely illiterate when it comes to all this rooted business. I would like to unroot it but I'm totally lost. Honestly if I can get the Wi-Fi to work is leave it alone. I tried uninstalling superuser but it just spins and spins. I have an SD card but I'm lost as to what to put on it.

    Please help! Also keep in mind I know very little about this so please try to be thorough in your response, small steps.
    Thank you in advanced for your help!!

    Removing root is more than uninstalling Superuser. Superuser is just an app that keeps a list of apps you've told it can access root when they ask for it.

    Try [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN, Samsungs are pretty easy to flash. (After Odin finishes it's going to take 10-15 minutes of watching grass grow, so do it when there's a good TV show to watch.)

    However, rooting and TWRP shouldn't affect Wifi - all of my devices have both (as an old hand at Linux [which is the OS on an Android phone] I just can't run without su [which is root], and I find TWRP handy - like for backing up before an update, in case something goes wrong [which happened twice already on my 2 month-old phone]). I suspect that the tablet has a problem, and your best bet, if you can (or contact eBay if you can't) is to return it for a refund.
