Some users just over-customize their phones without realizing that it would cause issues and no good on their phones. For example, installing too many root-requiring apps and using them without knowing what actually they do will put your phone in trouble. However, you can flash back the stock ROM on your device and unroot it. This way, all the custmizations that you have made on your phone will be removed and you will get the complete stock experience on your device.
Here’s how you can unroot your Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport:

1. Download Stock ROM for your Galaxy S5 Sport to your computer. Make sure you choose the one that is for your device/region.
2. Download Odin to your computer. It’ll be used to flash the ROM on your device.
3. This should erase the data on your device. So make sure to first take a backup of your files and then do the procedure.
