How to Unroot Samsung Galaxy Y Quickly? [Tutorial]

The day we posted, how to Root Samsung Galaxy Y, people were even more desperate to know how to unroot the device more than rooting it. They are right at their place, because the strongest reason behind clearing the path of unrooting the device is to claim the warranty of the phone at the service center incase something went wrong with the device.  By the way, if you haven’t purchased this phone yet, you can check out the hands-on review of Samsung Galaxy Y.

Why people fear from rooting? It’s because rooting VOIDS warranty and if in the rooting process you got your phone bricked, you cannot go anywhere. On the request of our beloved readers, I researched about unrooting the device and come up with this article.

If you are the one who want to root Samsung Galaxy Y, you can check out the tutorial here. For unrooting, let continue.

Few of the steps and instructions are common in both rooting and unrooting and those are

  • Don’t loose patience
  • Follow the tutorial very seriously and calmly
  • Do not disconnect your phone
  • Make sure your phone is charged more than 60%

Things needed before starting the un-rooting process

  • Download this file.
  • Copy the file to the root of phone’s internal memory

Steps: How to unroot Samsung Galaxy Y?

Step1: Switch off your phone and restart it with the following key combination

Volume UP + Home Key + Power button

It will bring your phone in the CWR (Clockwork Recovery mode).

Step2: In CWR, touchscreen will not work, you need to work using volume keys, home button and power button.

ClockWork Recovery Mode

So using the power button, move to the “Install zip from SD card” option and click on the home key and then choose the ‘choose zip form sd card’ and select file and click “yes”.

Step3: completing above, it will bring you back to the menu. Click on the “Go Back” and then choose “Reboot System Now”.

Whoa! Your phone is un-rooted! Congrats.

  4. The tutorial worked smoothly for me. You can test it on your phone, Whereas I cannot guarantee whether it will work for you not. According to me, there is no risk involved.

    If unfortunately something goes wrong then you can take your phone for paid service because rooting your phone will void the warranty of the device.

    Thank you for leaving the comment.

  7. i have a problem with my samsung galexy y internal memory which very low so i cant not move some app or game into sd card,,plse tell me what can i do?????/

  8. Hello Sumit,

    Thank you for leaving the comment.

    I understood your problem, The reason behind the problem of apps not getting moved to SD card is few apps are built in such a manner that they can only work if they are in phone memory. There are few apps which are not permitted to be moved to the SD card.

    I hope you got the reason for the problem. If you have any further queries, Do let us know.
