Default unroot without loosing anything on my phone

I want to be able to unroot but not have to reinstall all apps (with no data) and the phone settings returning to default I want to be able to just unroot without erase anything how can this be possible?

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

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

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

This is also the google search that you can look around in
