Android SDK and OEM USB Driver

The Android SDK provides you the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android. It is necessary to install "Documentation for Android SDK" and "Google USB Driver" within the Android SDK to root your Droid.

If you are developing on Windows and would like to connect an Android-powered device to test your applications, then you need to install the appropriate original equipment manufacturer (OEM) USB driver.

How to Unroot Android Phone?
Install ES File Explorer to Unroot

This is a universal guide on how to remove the SU binaries and Superuser.apk file using ES File Explorer in root mode.  This will unroot and remove root completely off your Android smartphone or tablet. Should work on 99% of Android devices on market right now. 

What it won't do is remove ClockworkMod recovery if you installed it. You will have to do that separately after unrooting.  But if you are on stock rooted ROM with no recoveries installed, this method will unroot your phone. You can do a factory reset after unrooting if you want to return your phone for warranty. 

Files you need to remove: 
/system/bin/su
/system/xbin/su
/system/app/Superuser.apk
.
