In case you’re having issues on your Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 LTE after rooting it, you might consider unrooting it. Unrooting will set your device back to the stock firmware that contains no modifications and is pure version of Android.
Here’s how to unroot your device:
Files You Need
1. You need to have the Samsung USB Drivers installed on your computer. These drivers will help your computer to recognize your phone.
2. Download Odin as it will help you flash the stock firmware on your phone.
3. Download the actual Stock Firmware for your SM-G7105 from the Samsung Updates website. It’s the whole software bundle for your phone that contains everything you need to run your phone.

Unrooting the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is how we take it all back to the way it was out of the box, so it is running the stock ROM once again and you are no longer in control of the root user account. That means you no longer get the same benefits that the root user had which was the ability to install and uninstall anything that you wanted. That means apps like Titanium Backup do not work once you are unrooted and neither will any of the other several thousand useful root applications that were available before.
Just like most things in technology, sometimes when we make changes to what the company had arranged for us things can go wrong. If you did root the Android operating system that was running on the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 smartphone and things seem bricked, then flashing the stock ROM and unrooting the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is always the way to go. It’s a good idea because there is no limit as to how many times you can root and then unroot it again so long as you know that there is still a working rooting method available.
Sometimes software updates that roll out for a device in the future come with patches that patch the exploits that were used by the rooting tools that you used the first time. So if you plan on rooting the Android operating system again in the future make sure you know that there is a way you can become the root user before unrooting or else you might be stuck with the stock ROM for ever.
