So we have our Samsung Galaxy S22 rooted with Magisk and in this article we will show you how to unroot this device using the PC program called Odin. This process is also going to work with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus and even the standard Galaxy S22 Ultra as well.
Also, remember that in order for things to be reverted back to 100 percent stock firmware, we are going to lose all of our data in the process. So be sure to back up your important information before you begin with this tutorial.
Now, to start off we are going to need to download the firmware for our device. We have already written some tutorials in which we mention how to download these firmware files using programs like frija and Samfirm. We can also use websites like Sam Mobile and Sam FW to get them as well. We just need to make sure that we are downloading the official Samsung firmware files from a trusted source.
We are also going to need to make sure that the firmware that we downloaded matches the region of the firmware that we already have installed on our device. The last thing that we are going to download is the program called Odin and this is what we will use to flash the firmware files over to our smartphone.
Here is the step-by-step guide to unroot our Samsung Galaxy S22 series:
Step 1: Download Odin and Firmware files for your Samsung Galaxy S22 device on your PC.
Step 2: Power off your device completely.
Step 3: Boot your device into what is known as download mode. You can check the link to find out how to boot into download mode if don’t know how to do it.
Step 4: Connect your device to your PC via USB cable.
Step 5: The firmware file that you downloaded is in a Zip format. Extract the firmware file on your PC. Once extracted, you will see five different files and you need to flash four of these files from Odin into your smartphone.
Step 6: Open Odin on your PC and make sure that it is detecting your Samsung Galaxy S22 device.
Step 7: Now, we need to load these files into Odin. So, click on the bl button in Odin and find the file from the firmware files that you extracted that starts with the letters Bl. Similarly, click on the cp button, and then we are going to load the firmware file that begins with the letters CP. Next up, we are going to click the CSC button and we are going to choose the file that begins with CSC. Lastly, we are going to load up the AP file in Odin. It is a large file and it will take some time to load up so be patient.
It is a very large firmware file, this contains the bulk of our firmware so after we load in that AP file it is going to take a little bit before the file is loaded. You are likely to see Odin not responding as your computer unpacks that file and loads it up into Odin. Do not click anything or do not change anything, just wait until Odin catches up and loads that AP file. Just be patient while this massive nine-gigabyte file gets loaded.
Step 8: Once all the firmware files are loaded click on the start button at the bottom to begin the process. Odin will start copying the firmware files to your Samsung Galaxy S22 and then flash or install the files to your Galaxy S22. You can see the progress bar right at the top and if you look at the smartphone toward the bottom of the screen you are likely going to see a progress bar right there as well.
The process will take some time so be patient and do not touch or do anything to your PC or smartphone. Just let Odin do it’s work and flash the stock firmware files to your smartphone. The process is going to be exactly the same for all three devices in the Galaxy S22 series.
Step 9: Once you see a green Pass message on top of Odin, your smartphone will reboot on it’s own. Unplug the USB once your smartphone rebooted and you will go into the Android activation process. The first boot back into Android takes some time as we have essentially done a big factory data reset.
That’s it. This is the step-by-step guide to unroot your Samsung Galaxy S22 series and installing a stock firmware file. All of your device data will be removed/deleted and your device will be back to 100 percent stock and unrooted. Just install all your apps and use the device as normal. You will also be able to receive and install over-the-air updates on your device just like normal.
