Default unroot airwatch

Hello, I am tempted to do this so I can remove some bloat, however, I need air watch installed which detects root, check in is once every 14 days for compliance. Worst case, can restore to stock?
However, I would just like to be able to uninstall stuff and then unroot and reinstall air watch. Is unrooting possible?
Do I need to install Safestrap if I have no intention to load custom roms?
Our company is BYOD, however Airwatch is required to allow remote wipe/enforce long passwords/activesync parameters. Only requirement for BYOD is non rooted or jailbroken phones.

Someone with experience might be able to answer this question. I don't intend to flash any custom ROMs. The only reason that I would install Safestrap is because that is the only way that I know of making a Nandroid for a locked bootloader. My Apps and Data are about 7 GB, so it would be pointless for me to use one of the virtual slots of 6GB maximum. I intend to use my Stock ROM slot, i.e. boot up into my stock ROM. My question is this: If I don't create any virtual slots with Safestrap and boot into my stock ROM as I would normally do, would my new internal storage space be greatly diminished in size? I like having a lot of storage for future expansion possibilities. If so, maybe a nandroid would not be feasible for me.

Default After installing ROM into second slut it will not boot.

I followed this procedure and rooted my SM-N900V with CN4, installed busybox, installed SafeStrap, Installed SS Recovery, re-booted into recovery, created a slut, installed the Hyperdrive ROM onto the created slut and rebooted the system. The problem is the reboot goes into a black screen and never comes out. Has anyone been able to fix this issue?
Also at firest I installed the SS ver 3.75. in that version the system size is stuck at 2612 and cannot be changed. In version 3.72 the system size can be changed but the result is the same (Black screen after installing ROM)

Thank you
Sam

Hope I'm interpreting your question correctly, but no, if you don't create any slots your memory is not affected solely because you installed SS.

Think this thread might help... If you're on the OTA NC4, then you'll need to follow the directions for "retail". Instead of the stock ROM mentioned, you'll be using Hyperdrive ROM.
