If you’ve over-done customizations on your Samsung Galaxy Core Max and it doesn’t behave as normal, you might want to flash it back with the stock ROM to get it working again. A stock ROM helps you get your device back to what it was when you first purchased it from the retail store. It doesn’t contain any customizations and is pure version of Android for your device.
So, here’s how you can go about unrooting your Samsung Galaxy Core Max:
Files You Need
1. You must have Samsung USB Drivers installed on your computer. If you haven’t, download and install them first.
2. Download the Stock ROM for your Samsung Galaxy Core Max to your computer. It’s the OS that will run on your phone once flashed.
3. Download Odin to your computer. It’ll help you flash the ROM on your device.
4. You should only try this on a SM-G5108Q device.
Unrooting the Samsung Galaxy Core Max
1. Right-click on both Stock ROM and Odin one by one and select Extract here. It’ll extract the actual usable files from the compressed archives.
2. Double-click on Odin executable to launch it on your computer.
3. When it launches, click on the button that says PDA and it’ll let you select the file to be flashed on your phone. Select the Stock ROM file that you extracted earlier.
4. There are a couple of checkboxes in the tool. Uncheck the Repartition box and checkmark both Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes.
5. Turn off your phone.
6. Turn your phone back on by holding down Volume DOWN+Home+Power buttons together.
7. Hit Volume UP when you’re prompted and you’ll be in download mode.
8. Connect your device to your computer using a USB cable.
9. Click Start in the tool and let it flash the stock ROM on your device.
10. When the ROM is flashed, your phone should automatically reboot.
11. You’re all set.
The stock ROM was successfully installed on your Samsung Galaxy Core Max and you’re now unrooted. The SuperSU app is no longer there in your app drawer which confirms that you are not rooted anymore.
