How to Unroot Android 2.3.6 on Galaxy W I8150

We have put together a detailed step-by-step instructions guide on how to unroot Galaxy W I8150 on Android 2.3.6 firmware. If you are used to installing official OTA updates through ODIN on Samsung Galaxy devices, then this should not be any different for you.

Please read every line carefully and make sure you read the entire tutorial once before actually performing it on your phone.

Just To Remember:

  • This unrooting method is only for Galaxy W I8150 and I am not sure if it will work on the other variants of the Galaxy W on other carriers.
  • Make a Nandroid backup of your previous phone set up before proceeding – for just in case anything goes wrong.

Complete Step-By-Step Instructions:

Step 1 – Download unroot.zip Unrooting Package for Galaxy W to your PC, if you haven’t already.

Step 2 – Connect and mount your Galaxy W USB memory on your computer using the USB cable.

Step 3 – Now copy/paste the downloaded unroot.zip file to your SD card. Make sure the file is in the SD card root (not in any folder).

Step 4 – Then turn OFF your phone and disconnect from the USB cable.

Step 5 – Now to get in the recovery mode. Switch ON the phone while pressing and holding Volume Up + Home + Power buttons together.

Step 6 – In recovery, using your volume keys scroll down to “apply update from sdcard” and press the Power button to select it.

Step 7 – Press the Power button again and select “choose zip from sdcard”.

Step 8 –Now using your volume keys, navigate to the unroot.zip file that you copied to your SD card and select it using the Power button. Confirm the installation on the next screen and the installation procedure should start now.

Step 9 – After the installation completes, go back and reboot the phone by selecting “reboot system now” from the recovery menu. The phone will boot now.

That’s it! Your Galaxy W is now successfully unrooted on Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread firmware! Check if the Superuser app has been removed from your apps list.

To make sure you have correctly performed the above unroot method and it’s working, verify with Root Checker as given in the link.
