I rooted my SM-900T with Kingo and then installed TWRP and CM 11. Everything installed and is working fine. I just want to know that if I decide to unroot that I do it the proper way.

Kingo will unroot my device but what I don't know for sure is the order I am suppose to do things. I assume I am suppose to use Kingo to unroot my phone then install the STOCK ROM? I am just unsure about TWRP, will that go away when I unroot or do I have to remove that?

If someone can let me know the correct order to do it I would be appreciative.

Thanks

Once you unroot and install the stock Rom you will no longer have the custom recovery TWRP.

Once I unroot with Kingo how will I install the Stock Rom without custom recovery, just use the stock recovery?

Ok so if I just put my phone into download mode and use Odin to flash the Stock Unrooted ROM via PDA it will revert the phone back to "Stock", unrooted and back to normal.

Just to make sure, it does not matter that I used Kingo to root though right? As long as I do what I mentioned above the phone will revert back?

Thanks!

Easy way: if you have kies installed on your laptop.... Just do a restore. Will put everything back to stock but your Knox will stay tripped unfortunately.
