    hi there everyone. Will anyone tell me is the restoring the factory data settings will unroot phone itself.it's because I just rooted my phone using the app they called framaroot. After overclocking, I've observed several app crashes so I unrooted it. To be sure I restored it to its factory settings.

    My question is restoring the phone to its factory settings helpful to recover the performance it lost after rooting. Does resetting it unroot itself? Thanks

    Re-flashing the current firmware with odin will remove root permanently,
    but hard reset may or may not remove root. it depends on the type of root

    doing a factory reset usually doesn't remove the root because that only affects the user data, does it?

    Well, I would say yes to some extent but I would say still there are chances that the device is sill rooted I would say better option would be carrying out with flashing the stock firmware again over to the device.

    So guys, what ways can you suggest to unroot it completely? Is there an app for it?

    There are not many apps for un-rooting. un-rooting depends on type of rooting process .
    You need to flash the stock firmware again.

    Nope like @mobilecrackers said there isn't a lot of apps that can unroot your device even if there are some apps I seriously doubt about their working ! I would say better to move forward with flashing the sock ROM over to your device rather than waiting for other issues to show up ! :)
