Hey, I tried a few of these and they worked, I think its just disabling them but either way I dont have to see their faces, I mostly did the updates OTA, Maps and good reads so I cant speak for the others. Thanks for the tip.

Many will come back over time as disabling system apps using this method is not durable. Rinse and repeat as needed.

This ^. I'm pretty sure Amazon will re-enable apps via OTA updates, unless you disable them via some script or via exploit which will be found in around 2 weeks

Why would they come back? I also disabled Amazon Appstore and OTA updater.

Because they want you to use their services and Google banned them for using their services, at least that's what I know so we have to use their super idiotic services

I understand that but I have literally blocked them from everything. Amazon has no control over my tablet anymore. I won't do any OTA updates.

Well, if you disabled OTA via some script them ok, but if you didn't they will install automatically even if you don't press install button, I assume you disabled it via script

Hmm.. That's interesting. I didn't use any script. But how are they going to install when all related packages are disabled?

I guess we'll see

I believe they hid something on root level, so I don't think using only adb is going to solve any problem, I would suggest waiting 2 weeks to 1 month and unlock tablet

If you nutered (renamed) DeviceSoftwareOTA.apk then most apps disabled via "pm disable-user ..." will remain in that state. Otherwise, they are easily reenabled via other processes or OTA activity. Disabling the previously mentioned app (none of the others really matter) and/or the Amazon app store via 'pm disable-user ...' is not durable as has been demonstrated on numerous occasions. FireOS will periodically re-enable apps/services it deems essential.

Caveat: I do not currently own a 2019 HD 10 (one is on the way) so it's possible behavior may be different on the FIreOS variant loaded on this devices. That said, FireOS has been behaving this way since early v3.x builds released in 2012. I see no reason why Amazon would reverse positions now as Fire devices are intended to be captive portals into the Amazon ecosystem, not general purpose Android gizmos.

Not entirely accurate. While Amazon does want you to use their app store as it serves as a source of revenue to subsidize the low cost of hardware (not to mention the rest of the Amazon ecosystem) they do not explicitly block the installation of Google Play Service/Store. Google did not 'ban' Amazon devices. While FireOS is a heavily skinned Android variant it does not meet the criteria to have Google Play Service pre-installed given the presence of a competitive app store. All of the major players operate this way. It would be nice to see Amazon offer Fire devices in two flavors (one with a generic Android build including the Play Store at a higher price point) but there is no economic incentive to do so. If you want that buy an Onn or Samsung device.
