Default [Q] How do I remove CWM and unroot my phone?

I installed the following CWM:
forums.techdiscussion.in/showthread.php/1382-How-to-install-ClockWorkMod-Recovery-in-Samsung-Galaxy-Y-S5360-Easiest-Method

and rooted it. Is there anyway I can do both these tasks? I've not installed Cyanogenmod or anything like that

you dont remove cwm

cwm is a recovery and there are two types

1 - tempory cwm - this is a zip file you flash in stock recovery to get to cwm recovery - You need to flash this zip every time you enter stock recovery in order to get to cwm

2 - perminant cwm - you replace your stock kernel with a custom kernel that replaces stock recovery with cwm recovery - therefore you no longer have stock recovery as it has been perminantly replaced by cwm



in order to go back to stock recovery you need to flash a kernel that has stock recovery instead of cwm recovery build in



with the root there are unroot zips - just do a search



to kill two birds with one stone you could just flash stock rom via odin - this will wipe everything from the phone and put it back to day you first switched it on - therefore it will have stock kernel which has stock recovery and it wont be rooted

I've been through that video, I've been through the steps but at the end it says failed. Any solutions?
