    Hey I'm sure this has been asked before but what's the easiest way to undo a root? I want to do my OTA software updates and it does not let me. Or is there another way to update the software? I also have a macbook pro so the comparability is not the same as if I were using a windows computer. Since kies does not allow me to download the firmware on the Mac app.

    Some superuser apps have a temporary unroot to allow this. Be advised: OTA updates can break root.

    I believe a factory reset will do it

    I already tried the factory reset. I think the only way would be to reflash stock firmware through odin.

    Anyone know where I can find the stock firmware and a way to flash it to the phone on a Mac? I miss my PC :/

    Are you just rooted or did you delete bloatware ect? If the later you'll need to Odin flash the factory software tar file to get completely back to stock. You could find it at XDA forum.

    You should try Sammobile. They have almost every single stock firmware of any country and carrier.

    I believe there's an app called OTA Root keeper, but I'm not sure if it works or not. Here's the link https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...otkeeper&hl=en and btw, it doesn't support 4.3 just fyi.

    Good luck
