Default [Q] Please help me remove SuperSu from stock

Hi

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

Thanks

Frank

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.
