I have been searching everywhere and tried loads but i cant seem to get rid of the supersu app.

I unlocked the phone via HTCDev, installed TWRP and made a system backup. After this i have been using a custom rom and kernel and now i want to sell the phone and go back to 100% stock.

I have gone into TWRP and restored my backup assuming this would be stock. I then noticed i still had SuperSU installer on the phone. So i rooted he phone again and slected complete unroot in the app and then did a factory reset. Unfortunately supersu keeps coming back.....,

I hope someone can help me get rid of this app for good so it doesnt appear again when doing a factory reset

The problem is it kept coming back after I reset the phone.

I did however solve the issue bin flashing unsuperuser from recovery which I found in this thread

You could've just removed SuperSU using the file manager in TWRP. Just make sure you mount the system folder in TWRP first.

Why not RUU your phone back to stock if it's available.
