Trading phone in

3 posts in this topic

My phone is rooted. Before I trade it in, can I just do a reset to get it back to stock and un rooted?

With a rooted S5 Knox is tripped and can never be untripped so hopefully that won't be a trade in issue. You can try a factory reset but that may not give you back the stock bootloader/recovery. Give it a try and reboot into recovery mode and see if it's stock or custom. If it's still custom the easiest way would be to download any stock KLTEUSC Firmware (you can find links in other threads of the Team USC forums) and flash it via Odin. Flashing stock firmware replaces custom recoveries with the stock one.
