How to unroot Nexus 6P using Wug’s toolkit [Guide]

Google Nexus 6P [1]Many people opted to buy the Google Nexus 6P thanks to the large display that towers over the Nexus 5X sister device. There are heaps of rooted apps available for the 6P that can make use of that additional screen real-estate, one of which is the Full!screen app that can help you use the full display just like you wanted. However, rooting your device doesn’t mean you are stuck with the device in that state forever and if you feel more comfortable with the additional security and locked operating system offers, you can elect to unroot the Google Nexus 6P smartphone and use the device again the way Google intended. In other words, it will go back to its original and factory state just like when you first opened it out of the box.
