My shiny new phone comes with a bunch of bloatware. Rooting the phone and removing that way is one option. But, a few apps dislike rooted phones. There is another way using the Android Debug Bridge (ADB). Bonus, I already had that installed and working on my laptop.
Some of the bloaty apps:
- Xiaomi Cloud
- Mi Music
- Mi Video
- Mi Services & feedback
And some other apps I wish to send to the void:
- Youtube Music
I can make a list of all apps installed on the phone and review to see what else to get rid off:
There are 90+ packages from xiaomi/miui on my phone - some are needed, but a few can go. As well as some google apps. Some examples below.
ADB then reports either success or failure for each app. Bye-bye bloat!
