If you’re reading this, it means the time has come for you to unroot your Oppo R1L. There could be many reasons why you want to unroot your device. Maybe the root-access didn’t deliver the functionalities that you were looking for, or maybe you’re going to it’s time to sell the device or even send it in for warranty.
Unrooting removes the root-access from your device and puts it back to a stock-like state.
Once you have unrooted your Oppo R1L, you will not be able to access any root-only apps on it nor will you be able to access system files using a system-level file explorer. These will become the things of the past, unless you re-root your device and start tinkering around again.
So without further ado, let’s see how you can unroot your Oppo R1L. Here you go:
Before You Begin
1. You should have rooted your device using the procedure given here. If you didn’t use it to root your device, the following procedure may or may not work for you.
2. This procedure should only work on Windows based PCs as the tool that unroots the device is only available for Windows operating system.
3. This only removes root-access from the device. It doesn’t flash a stock firmware.
