How to unroot Samsung Captivate Glide [Guide]

Samsung-Captivate-Glide [1]If you dabbled in the custom scene and opened up your device internals with root access, you might want to put those same restrictions back in place again. Luckily there are third-party developers out there who make that possible with dedicated tools to get you back on stock Android and where you want to be.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN 

HOW TO UNROOT THE SAMSUNG CAPTIVATE GLIDE

  1. Download the official stock Android firmware build from here [2].
  2. Download the version of Odin you can use here [3].
  3. Extract the Odin folder to the desktop and run the tool.
  4. Boot the smartphone in Download Mode.
  5. Hold the Volume Up + Power at the same time and the phone should boot into the Download Mode.
    Now connect the device to the computer using the USB cable.
  6. Click the PDA button from inside Odin and browse for the stock firmware file.
  7. You will need to unzip and extract the firmware folder to find the executable firmware file inside.
  8. Leave the default settings as they are.
  9. Do not check the re-partition box.
  10. Click the Start button to start the flashing.
  11. Do not touch any buttons until it completes.
  12. You’ll find Odin giving you a pass message and the device will automatically reboot.

Now your phone is free from root access and running the stock version of Android both Google and your manufacturer intended. Furthermore, the warranty on your Captivate is in working order so long as you have some time left.
