How To: Unroot the Samsung Galaxy

We apologize for any inconvenience but due to Megaupload going down, we can no longer find the necessary files for this procedure (this procedure is for the original Samsung Galaxy and it is quite old now). If you know where to find these files, please use the contact us form and we’ll be happy to add them.

I. Before You Begin.

1. We are assuming you did our How To Root the Samsung Galaxy procedure.

II. Download the ROM and ODIN Flasher and Flash the ROM

1. Download the ODIN Flasher and Original OPS file. Unzip the file somewhere on your computer.

3. Under Select OPS, Choose the Orion.ops from the ODIN Flasher file we just downloaded.

4. Download the Latest Original ROM here, and do NOT extract it.

    It doesn’t work on my Samsung Galaxy i5700?

    When I get to the part where you have to hold down the power button, down volume key and ok button it says “Battery Disconnected” and vibrates!!!

    Please advise.
