Default [Q] Full Factory Reset Method

All,

I have some trouble with s Health that I think is due to root. I would like to clear out the phone and set it up again and tried "Factory data reset" but this did not fix everything and in fact did not seem to remove my root. Is there a more complete factory reset method to return the system to full stock mode?

Thanks,

You're going to need to flash in order to get rid of root. Tutorial comes with the link above.

You dont need to reset the phone. Its been a common problem with alot of people including myself. If you have root it sems that S-health doesnt like the latest update. Go into applications/applications manager/ALL and scroll to HealthService. Select it then clear cache/data and uninstall updates. then go to S-Health and do the same.Reboot and it will be fine and even work still after it updates again.
Also factory resets dont get rid of root. You need to flash you official firmware via Odin to do that mate.
