Default rooted C6802 phone - can't install sony updated software

hi this is newbie question but when I try updating rooted C6802 on .290 phone using the sony software updater on my PC it says "my phone contains modified software." How do i unroot or my phone or change something else (build.prop) so I can move to the latest firmware.

You can't via pcc or sus, you need to use flashtool to flash roms or recovery to install updates and keep root.
