Why do you want to unroot? What do you want to ultimately achieve. Removing root to use a banking app is one thing. Returning to stock to receive ota updates is another.

Please give as much detail and reasoning as possible

Go to settings in the superuser app and at the bottom it says "full unroot". And then factory reset is in order to make the phone go back to default with no apps on it.

Some apps such as tivo or watch ABC or FOX or HBO will not work. Amazon prime movies also.
unless their are a way to bypass this trick?

In which case as mentioned by the others, you can unroot via superuser apps.

Although there are tricks/apps to hide root from these apps too. Have a look around the android apps forum on xda

Amazon restricts streaming to the Kindle device. HBO Go works fine on my phone.

You could try this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...otadfree&hl=en

If you have xposed on your phone there is also this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2574647
