Why Unroot a Rooted Android Device?
If you use MTK Android phones like infinix, Tecno, Innjoo and other related phones, it is best to leave them unrooted unless you have a very good reason to do it. Don’t just root them for some lame reasons or just because you read a tutorial that said you should.

How To Unroot Android Phone Using Kingroot App
NOTE: In most cases, unrooting an Android device with Kingroot App works if the phone or tablet was rooted with Kingroot App. There have been exceptions but that is usually the case.
Download the latest version of Kingroot app (version 4.5.0107 beta3) and open it. Tap on Settings (the gear icon) at the top right section of the screen.
On the settings page, tap on Root Authorization setting > Remove Root Permission > Continue.
A prompt screen with the message, “Remove root permission: Remove root authorization completely and return to unroot status, proceed?” Tap “OK” to proceed.
Give Kingroot app to do its job, after which you get ‘Root has been removed’ message. If you leave the app open, it will automatically close by itself.
Finally, reboot your Android phone or tablet. Using an application called “Root Checker Basic” verify root permission. If your unrooting was successful, you would get a notification with the message ‘Sorry! Root access is not properly installed on this device‘. You will also see your phone name and Android version.
