I am trying to unroot my AT&T Galaxy S4 back to stock so I can apply the OTA updates. Currently I am rooted and running MF3 and cannot apply any of the OTA updates, fails at 25%

So if I want to unroot do I Odin the MF3 tar files or would it be better to Odin back to the MDL version? Then I should be able to apply the updates?

Why don't you just Odin the nb1 tar files and forget the ota?

I thought about doing that but was not sure if it was possible since since I was rooted. Was afraid of bricking the phone. So if I Odin NB1, how do I unroot the phone? Do I need to do anything before flashing that tar file?

Just flash in Odin. It'll put the new firmware on and remove root. You don't have to unroot first
