Default [Q] removing superuser su without root or USB Function

What is a good way to remove the super user app without root or USB function(hardware issue). I have to send my phone back in a couple days to get a new one and need to get rid of custom lock at the startup. I have the att i337. The only way USB works is in download mode.

You can use triangle away to get rid of the custom status and then use a root Explorer to delete the busybox files after that use SuperSu 's built in uproot to finish up. You might want to delete the busybox before triangle away.

The script files are not installed so I do not have root.

Sorry, misread your post.
You have to have root to remove the custom status.

Is there a way to root without USB ability on device? It will only connect to pc in download mode. All other USB options won't work because of hardware issue. I just need to find a way to root without usb. I do have a sd card and reader.

It's not a hardware issue. If it is connecting through download mode, it is either a driver issue, a port issue on your computer or the software on your phone is borked and you can ODIN it to fix it. This is not a hardware issue on the phone at all.
