Hi guys,

does anyone have a list or script for adb uninstall ready? Someone linked it for S10+ back in the day and it was very nice. Maybe some of you already have a list compiled?

Appreciated.

Regards

Be careful not to uninstall the stock launcher, my navigation bar stopped working. Had to reinstall the launcher.

Please post your findings of what worked / didn't work, as the provided list is for the S10 obviously.

it worked for me. Some packages weren't originally installed so didn't need to remove.

I am wondering if anyone has the package name to remove the MacAfee bloat.

Thanks

Are you verizon? If so, I believe it's the digital secure app.

Can i ask what's the point of this? I was reading about the process and it states that the apps aren't fully uninstalled, they're basically hidden from "user 0", so why not just the hide app function? Or am I missing something here? Are they not running in the background for user 0? Is this more like a hibernate feature?

I was pleasantly surprised when I tried removing apps the traditional way, a decent amount of the bloatware is removable. Most of what I wanted gone is gone, just a few extra apps now.

menu space and disk space saving is negligible real benefit is less CPU load / battery as they're not even running in background
its a great way to do it because you can restore via factory reset, no lasting damage possible (except for removing stock launcher without another installed ROFL even then I'm guessing you can use stock recovery to wipe)

I have been working on this. I have barfed up my phone a couple times now removing apps that should not be removed. I think I finally have a solid list that others can use. I'm just cleaning it up so it makes sense.
