I am currently running 4.06.651.4 with baseband 1.00.20.0315 and Hboot 1.44.

as I undertand, the only way to remove root on Kitkat is to flash a RUU which unfortunately also comes with the updated Hboot 1.56

I do not want to update my Hboot to 1.56.


is there anyway I can unroot the phone?

If you're S-OFF you should be able to run an older RUU

Technically if you want to remove root, you can just delete the su and busybox binaries from the /system partition.
