    Am using Samsung galaxy s5

    I had root acess viaa odin..
    now i want to unroot it..
    and i tried via SuperSU.

    root checker says "sorry, this device does
    not have proper root access". So why does my
    device status still say "modified". I did have
    Super SU. I did un root via that app. and
    thought I was unrooted. But somewhere in
    here (forums) stated that if your device
    status says modified that is an indication
    you're rooted. Hence why I assumed I was
    someway still rooted. Apparently though the
    phone is not capable of getting OTA updates
    while the status is modified. That's why I'm
    trying to get that status back to normal.

    I can get updates. I am running 4.4.2 and
    the phone hasn't had an update since I
    rooted about 2 months or so ago.

    Help me pls

    Did you have a custom recovery installed while you were rooted? If so, did you get rid of it before you unrooted?

    You said you rooted via Odin which tells me you have a custom recovery. That's why system is modified.
