Odroid U2/U3 - UnRoot

Unread postby tech4lust » Wed Oct 08, 2014 6:22 pm

Hello guys,

help me out please.

I want to unroot my Odroid devices U2 and U3 because I want to use a few video services that use Google's Widevine DRM. I've tried everything:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... root&hl=en

http://www.droidviews.com/how-to-hide-r ... n-android/

It doesn't work. The apps still recognize my root status. Is there an android image that I can use with root so that I can install later GApps and setup my device?

Looking forward to your answer.

Did you try the root keeper?
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... eper&hl=en
It also serves as temporary un-root.

Will try, thx.

I'll get back to you with results, but is it ok to use it with ODROID-U3/U2/X/X2 Android 4.4.4 Alpha 4.3 image? I see that it offers "no 4.3 support" but is only for 4.3 or is it for 4.3 and higher?

Hello again,

nop, it doesn't work. Even though the app tells that my device is not rooted, other apps can recognize the root status. I have a screenshot but don't know how to attach.

Any other ideas?

I have no idea until to know how those apps detect the root status. :(

It is almost impossible to know the detect mechanism without their source code.
We may need to ask them how they do it.. but I think they will not answer.

As far as I know, the Rooting means
1. 'su' binary in "/system/bin/" or "/system/xbin"
2. Superuser.apk in "/system/app/"

Refer below link to know how to remove above files.
http://www.droidviews.com/how-to-unroot ... -manually/

If it doesn't help, try to find "busybox" and remove it.
I think you can find it in "/system/bin" or "/system/xbin" probably.
