I have a galaxy s4 att model. My phone was rooted a while back. I thought root was taken off but when I updated to kitkat the boot screen with the custom message showed up again and when trying to open an app like isis a message comes up saying that my phone is rooted and it can't work. I noticed supersu says disabled and I can't Uninstall it. I want to completely remove root but I don't wanna lose any data. How do I do this? I have a galaxy s4 on att running kitkat. Any help would be appreciated.

To answer your question anyway, install supersu from market run it, press menu go to settings and clean up & unroot.

Or you could keep root, and install an app that hides root for specific apps. I think it is called root cloak or something.
