Default [Q] Need to unroot my Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Hi everyone, i have recently bought used Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N-7100. Its currently on 4.1.1 but when i try to update its firmware it gives this error "Your device has been modified. Software Updates are not available" after this error i came to know about rooting/unrooting. I have read few tutorials and watch too but didnt see any positive feedbacks from people who have used them. so please let me know is there any safe procedure of unrooting my phone, it has super user app installed + in device status its says "modified" . I will be really gald if someone could help me as i want to go back to stock software.

Yes, you would need to download a software called Odin. You also need to download a compatible firmware. You stated you have a N-7100. Your firmware should be available here. Simply search for N7100. If you do not see yours listed, please let me know.

If you do find it, put your phone into download mode (hold Vol Down + Home + Power), open up Odin on your computer, then plug your phone to your computer, in Odin, select the "PDA/AP" tab, a window will popup, select the file you downloaded (it will be in a .tar format, if it is in .zip, simply extract it and you will find the .tar file), wait a few seconds while it checks the file. Once it is ready, select start. It will take several minutes to finish and you will be back to 100% stock. You will be able to update your phone without receiving that error. Hope that helps.

EDIT: Here is a video I found that may be useful. It is step by step.

Default unrooting N7100

You don't provide enough information (stock /custom rom, reasons for unroooting,...) for an easy answer imho.
Don't deem me rude ... but to my reckognition it's the best way to start with learning 'how do I make good use of web & forum search mechanisms' - before trying to mess with some complex devices' firmware.
Most probably you'll want to continue reading here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1896696
