Default Is it possible to temporarily unroot?

I want to use certain apps like Sky Go and Barclays Banking but they only work on unrooted devices.

Before on 4.2.2 I could use Voodoo Rootkeeper to hide it, which was great.

However, that is incompatible with 4.3.

I had similar issues on N7100 (Note 2) and the way round a rooted note 2 accessing Barclays (root detector) was installing an older version of Barclays app, in essence the app looks for SuperSU or Superuser app I believe.

How about freezing or uninstalling SuperSU? Would that work?

Would cause issues I think, If the app looks for SuperSU or Superuser then it will still find it. You could always just run clean up and unroot then re-root I guess - But it depends on if you wanna re-root again or if you have 0x0 vs 0x1 etc -

I have 0x1, and I'd be willing to clean up but I guess I need computer to re-root?

Hmm, would be great if it did! However, doesn't mobile odin require root to work?

Actually not 100% sure, never thought about that or used it myself. *goes to check*

EDIT: Yip needs root
