How to UnRoot Android TV Box quickly

To Unroot:

  1. Install “Terminal Emulator” from the Google Play Store.
  2. Make sure your device is rooted.
  3. Run the “Terminal Emulator” and enable root by typing “su” on the command prompt.
  4. mount /system as RW with this command: “mount -o remount,rw /system”.
  5. Go to the app directory: “cd /system/app/”
  6. Move the Superuser directory to the /system directory: “mv Superuser ..”
  7. reboot.

To enable root: Just move Superuser back to /system/app/

This enabled me to run all my apps without root enabled…  (i.e DSTV NOW)

Followup:

I had a couple of questions how to re-root and it could not be easier than going to the Play Store and re-installing Superuser.
