It did work when I deleted Supeuser data from Settings>App>All.

Thanks for your idea... but that did not work.

Just had a thought. Re-root your phone then try using a root explorer to remove it from /System/apps.

Hi, I know this was posted a long time ago but I was wondering if you could help me. I bought a rooted Sprint evo a while ago and now I can't unroot it. I can't uninsured Superuser and it's not even listed in my downloaded apps. Do you know of anyway that I'd be able unroot?
