2-Open The App And Allow SU permissions
3-Backup The Root
4-Once Backup is Completed Unroot The Device

"SuperSU"

Once installed you can remove the superuser.apk since that app takes the place of it.

It allows you to temporarily unroot your device very quickly and very easily.

There is a free version on the play store and has more features that the superuser app.

Ok I finally figured out where it is stored. So I temp unrooted my phone made purchase and then selected download for offline viewing. So in the directory there is a file

application_4jSa8szMNjs.wvm

so i brought my root back to get into that directory then where i was stumped i figured it would be wmv mp4 3gp or whatever with drm protection but no its wvm I have never heard of wvm. so anyways I moved the wvm file to a different directly. Temporarily unrooted my phone . Then went into the google play movie app and it said that the download was missing. so i know I have the proper file. Now my question is does anyone here know anything about a .wvm file ?

Make a copy first then change extension and play in media player.
