Unrooting the Huawei Ascend is as easy as installing the stock ROM using our guide. Once you have unrooted the device, you will lock up the internal system and be back to having the factory restrictions over your operating systems. That means no more root-only apps from the Google Play Store. Those of you with a warranty will have that warranty working again when you send it away.
The Files You Need
- Download the file you need to unroot your device from this forum page here.
- There are three different files you will find inside the link above. One for Windows; one for Mac; one for Linux operating systems. You must download the correct file for your operating system.
- You must enable USB Debugging Mode on the device. You can do that by heading to the menu > Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging. Alternatively, you might head to the menu > Settings App > Developer Options > USB Debugging Mode.
- We suggest taking a back up of your data on the phone before starting. You do not lose data just by following the guide. The back up is suggested for when you take a factory reset to recover the phone if something goes wrong.
