Important instructions

  1. Step one is the one to tell you that you are required to open the laptop and stop at its desktop; here is where the Root Package needs to be placed. Then extract the content that is inside this archive to the desktop.
  2. You will have to turn USB debugging on; you won’t have a hard time to do this, because the only actions you need to perform are you going to the phone’s Menu, choosing Settings, tapping on Developer options and selecting USB debugging. The latter option should feature a box next to it; check that box.
  3. Step three will need you to hold the phone’s USB cable as you use it to plug the Xperia S to the computer. Double-click on RunMe.bat and choose Unroot.
  4. Step number four will go well only when you have some patience from the moment you opted for that Unroot options. Otherwise the smartphone will not experience the much-needed unrooting procedure.
  5. The last step of this tutorial is the fifth and it tells you that you should reboot the Xperia S after the completion of the earlier process. This is all there is to know about how you can quickly and easily unroot the Sony Xperia S. Check if Superuser is on the phone or not; if not, then everything went like we wanted it to.
