How do you unroot the GS3 and get back to stock unrooted? I am currently just stock rooted. I'm just done with flashing and don't want to worry about something happening to my phone while I'm rooted, and am sick of it not being able to take the VZW update on a daily basis. I understand there is an unroot in the superuser app, is it as simple as clicking that and it will unroot by itself? Is there more I need to do? Thanks for your help!

Many ways to unroot, you could use SuperSU and select remove root, then uninstall the app then reboot or use universal unroot app from play store.

Thank you. Once you perform either or these methods, can you still root again in the future if you decide to?

I unrooted through SuperSU. Went to install the VZW update and it went into Teamwin Recovery. When it was trying to update the software and running all the checks, etc. I saw "checking for MD5 file...no MD5 file found." What is this and is this what is causing me to not be able to take the update? Am I supposed to still have Teamwin Recovery? How do I get rid of it? Root Checker said I'm unrooted now.

Where do I go from here? Thanks again!

Then you're unrooted and up to date, but you'll erase all of your data. So backup all the pictures and music you want to keep.
