Did you root the Samsung Galaxy S5 but now wish you were running the stock ROM with a locked OS instead? All you need to do is follow this how to unroot Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900F guide and you won’t have root access any more on your device. Here’s all you need to know to get that done:
- The following guide is made purely for the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone with the model number SM-G900F. You can turn on your device and head to the Settings > scroll down until you see the About Device menu and look at the model number inside that same About Device menu.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- Download the Samsung USB Drivers for mobile phones from the Samsung website found on our USB drivers page. Alternatively, you can download the third-party Samsung link we have set up if the official website link is down during your visit.
- Make sure you have the Developer Options menu enabled so you can enter that same menu. You can tell if it’s enabled by heading to the Settings and scrolling down until you get to the Developer Options menu. That option is usually down the end of the settings list. If you do not see it there, then it needs unlocking.
- To unlock the Developer Options, head to the Settings > About Device > tap the build number 7 times or until it counts you down with how many turns you must tap until you are a developer. Now you will find it available from the settings menu you came from before entering this space.
- Enter that same Developer Options menu and enable the USB Debugging Mode. Scroll down the Developer Options list until you can see the box you need to check for enabling the USB Debugging.
