HELLO EVERYONE!!! THIS GUIDE IS AVAILABLE ALL OVER XDA BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD POST IT HERE.

Basically, If you are like me, you like a nice clean debloated stock ROM, but I was too late to the party, and missed the date for bootloader unlocking (and root!)
But....all is not lost, we cannot use Titanium Backup Etc to freeze or remove system apps, because we have no root access.....

But there is a way to remove system apps without root, the commands given later will remove whatever program you want gone.
This procedure is at your own risk, make backups, it should work on most androids (Tested on Honor 10, Honor 9 Lite, Xperia XA1 and a Moto G6 Play) - Please dont moan at me if your phone explodes, makes weird noises, or kills you during the night - All the commands below will get rid of a LOT of stuff! Mine and 10 others who used this have suffered no problems at all.

What you Need :

1 x Honor 10
1 x USB Lead
ADB and Drivers installed properly on your PC
(Easiest thing to do is download and install Minimal ADB and FASTBOOT : https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=2317790 )

**Before you start, the apps option in your phone setting allows you to uninstall many programs, so uninstall away, some items just say 'disable' or nothing at all - these are the programs we are interested in **


follow the instructions on that thread how to install program properly.

Now on your phone, Enable USB Debugging (search XDA how to do this if you dont know)
open the command window (also known as CMD)
type in ADB DEVICES - if all your drivers etc all installed properly, then the message should read XXXXXXXXX (where the XXXXXXXXXXXs is your phone ID, and it will say device, if it says unauthorized, you may see a pop up on your phone screen, click allow, and run ADB devices, it should no longer say unauthorized

if you have nothing there, please install all drivers for your phone, search the forums on how to install drivers

now, type in ADB SHELL


my phone now says : HWCOL:/ $ and now allows me to enter the items that i need to debloat, you can get a list of app names by typing the command pm list packages

this will now list packages on your phone i.e

package:com.huawei.hifolder and the rest of your installed stuff

now you can enter these commands one by one, or CUT the commands and PASTE in your CMD window, after every command, it will say 'Success' but occasionally you will get error 'Failure [not installed for 0]' - this is because the app is not installed on your phone, dont worry about this.....

These commands will delete several Huawei items (some you might need, but in the interest of debloating, im including it), it will also debloat the extra included system apps (theres some facebook bloat, some other little programs, and a lot of google bloat - this will debloat a lot of it, and keep your phone lean and clean!)

Again, before doing this, read up about the programs installed on your phone, you may want a system app kept.....just choose which command you dont want to do.....) SO LETS GET TO IT

Are all of those commands confirmed?
My phone is rooted and i tried to uninstall some system apps using TB.
Some apps could be removed but for some i got "apk not found".
I wasn't able to uninstall that translator app, so i would like to know if pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.microsoft.translator is working.

When there's a EMUI update, do you have to root it all over again?
