How to Unroot the OnePlus Two (Video)
So I’ve gone over why you would want to root the OnePlus Two but there are some reasons to undo that should you need. From sending it in for warranty, to selling it and wanting to get it all back to stock for the next owner, to just wanting to maybe start over and root the thing again, unrooting the OnePlus Two can be a necessary option.
If you have TWRP recovery on the OnePlus Two from doing my rooting tutorial for it, then it’s actually pretty easy to do, too.
All we need to do is boot into recovery and flash the stock ROM’s zip file and TWRP will take care of the rest. Here’s the step by step.
