    Can someone please post a copy of the file.. Unroot nexus 6. Zip? When I open mine, I get unroot nexus 6. Zip. Cpgz? Mine must be corrupted. With a clean copy of that file, I can unroot my Nexus 6 on my Mac. Thanks for any help. 😁

    To unroot, just go to /system/xbin. look for a file named su and delete it. Then uninstall whichever superuser app you have installed. (I don't know why you'd want to, though. The phone's being rooted doesn't change anything unless you run an app that asks for root [then it runs su first, then the app runs]. If you're running an app that doesn't request root access, it runs the same whether the phone is rooted or not.)

    If you're looking to e able to run apps that won't run on a rooted phone, if you're rooted with Magisk, just hide root from that app. If you're system rooted, the superuser app should be able to hide root. If it actually looks for signs that the phone has been rooted, "unrooting" it won't do, you'll have to flash the factory ROM - https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-5cd75e2a.zip is the file. (If you have a Nexus 6, you should have Google | Factory Images for Nexus and Pixel Devices and Google | Full OTA Images for Nexus and Pixel Devices bookmarked.)

    (If the bootloader is already unlocked, you should also install TWRP [if you haven't already], and make a data backup, then copy the backup and /sdcard to your Mac before you flash the firmware.)

    I unroot my Nexus 6, and do a factory reset every year. It's just my way of clearing out the residual garbage that i believe hides in the phone. Somehow, the file i need got corrupted so i needed another way to unroot completely. I guess that i'll flash the factory rom to bring it back to stock, then do a factory reset to wipe it completely. Thanks for the help.

    Tried it, and it didn't work. I lost root, but i still have the 8.1 rom on my phone, and i can't install a factory image. If i wipe the phone without a factory image, i think that i'll just have a paperweight, instead of a phone. I need some help, big time. Thanks.
