Hey everyone! New phone, new debloat / bloatware removal list!

Please see my original post from the Galaxy S8 to see the XDA article on how to do this.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...hread-t3669009

Also, here's my post from the Galaxy S10 / S10+ Plus, just for comparison:

https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...tware-t3912073

Just debloat what you don't need. Of course, this is NOT a complete list. Some have reported that Bixby is completely safe to remove, as well as, Pay but I'll leave that up to the community to discuss.

I've removed Bixby and my phone hasn't explode (yet!).

Code:
How to Re-Install an Uninstalled App
************************************
Open a command prompt or terminal window, and enter the following command (don't need to be in ADB Shell): 
adb shell cmd package install-existing <name of package>

RUN IN COMMAND PROMPT WINDOW
***************************
adb devices
adb shell

You can run multiple command lines by copy / pasting multiple lines, you don't have to remove one package at a time:

I was removing apps through adb as well when I had my Mate 20 X but it's easier to just use App Freezer from the play store to feeeze/unfreeze apps on the fly. Then if you want you can share your xml file with others.

Removed SoundAlive then realised that also got rid of Dolby Atmos, now Advanced Sound Settings doesn't do anything.
Does anyone know the actual package name (seeing as App inspector now shows only installed apps) so that I can resurrect the app?
Thanks in advance.

I heard that app freezer can mess up your phone so it can't do backups?

Nope, Backup still working as intended, just checked. To be clear, I am using ADB command line in Terminal , not any specific apps. Read that firmware updates are also unaffected.

I could not find official adb for macOS. I did find an old thread (2017) which has adb for macOS for download.


Quick question: Is there an official adb installer for macOS or do I have to fire up my windows machine?


---------- Post added at 07:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:30 PM ----------

I actually got adb on my MacOS by installing "android-platform-tools".


Code:
brew cask install android-platform-tools

I'm loving Bixby Routines, as it actually has nothing to do with Bixby and does a really awesome function. I was telling someone about that yesterday as a reason they should swap from iOS (they're debating on it already).

Does removing any of the Bixby stuff change / mess with Routines? I'm thinking they just called it this, and it has nothing to do with actual Bixby. The AI stuff for battery, performance and these Routines are why I changed over to a Samsung (not from Apple) and I love them.

In response to whoever mentioned removing Samsung Pay. SP is accepted in more places than Google Pay and has increased security. They generate a one time Card Number for any transactions, masking your existing.
