If you are using Jump, I wouldn't bother to unroot.

Just do a factory reset, and be done with it.

I just traded in my Wife's S4 that was rooted for an s5 on the jump program, and they don't check that type of thing.

Using a root capable file manager you can delete
the superuser.apk in the /system/app folder.

After doing that you will no longer have root.

Good luck!

I'm not using jump I'm just trading my device in for a Gs5.so I should be fine with just doing a factory reset.

No because once you unroot you will no longer be able to write to that folder.

T-Mobile checks for water damage with those stickers under the battery cover. They make sure the phone powers up and that the screen is not cracked and the touch screen works. That is ALL T-Mobile cares about and will check when trading in a phone.

When i came over from VZW and they paid my ETF for doing so they took my Bionic in trade (I kept my S4 to sell) it was somehow currupt and i told them hold on, i have a custom ROM installed let me restore the backup. They took the Bionic with CM 10.1 installed. They only need it to boot up with screen not cracked and working. She told me that's all they are instructed to check and nothing else matters.

What was funny she asked me about rooting and custom ROMs and the next week i went over to her place and set up her note 3 with a custom ROM. Last time i ran into her she told me she's a flashoholic now.
