I'm running Android 4.1.1, baseband I605VRALJB. I rooted using Exynos Abuse. What's the easy and safe way to unroot so I can go back to stock?

Thanks

Re: Safest way to unroot

So....I just uninstall Exynos Abuse and reset it back to stock? I'm doing this so I can turn this phone back in. I want it to be just like new as far as the operating system.

Re: Safest way to unroot

I'm rooted using the same OS version (I605VRALJB) with SuperSU. Assuming you have it too, there is a "Full unroot" option in SuperSU. Launch the app from your app drawer, then under "Settings" scroll down; the option is near the bottom. It will delete SuperSU from the system removing root. You could then do a master factory reset to put the system back to a clean default state (doing so will also remove the Exynos Abuse app). :)

Re: Safest way to unroot

If you are using SuperSU, it has an "unroot" option built in.

I too am running Android 4.1.1, baseband I605VRALJB but have Superuser instead of SuperSU. I see an option for "temporary unroot" but not full unroot. What is the easist option for me to unroot and go back to stock?

You could use a file manager such as ES File Explorer (with its root features enabled to get to the "system" directory) and delete the following files (then reboot phone):
/system/xbin/su
/system/app/Superuser.apk
