Hi guys, most of the Realme users aren't a fan of the color OS since its heavy, looks immature, and filled with bloatware. However there is a way to remove all the bloatware in Color OS. NO ROOT IS REQUIRED AND ITS NOOB FRIENDLY.
NOTE: DO NOT REMOVE ANY IMPORTANT SYSTEM APP, I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING UNEXPECTED HAPPENS WITH YOUR DEVICE ;_;
Requirements:
1. A PC/laptop with drivers and minimal ADB installed.
2. Realme XT, and a type-C USB cable to connect the device to the computer/laptop.
3. Package viewer app that can be installed from Playstore. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.pkg&hl=en_US
Procedure:
Firstly, go to settings, click on 'About Phone' and continuously tap the Version until it says that 'now your'e a developer'. Then go to additional settings, developer options, enable it and turn on the "USB DEBUGGING" option under developer options.
1. Now connect your phone to PC/laptop using the data cable, and choose transfer files option from the popup on your phone.
2. Now migrate to the folder where minimal ADB is installed, and hold shift key and right click on mouse button, and click on 'Open Powershell window here'.
3. Now type 'adb devices' on the powershell window, and allow access from from device. A serial code must be shown on your screen.
4. Now type 'adb shell' and press enter. Now a new line should come starting with "RMX1921:/ $" , means we are good to go.
5. Now you have to enter commands to remove apps. The command is 'pm uninstall -k --user 0 package name' then press enter. In the place of package name, you have to type the name of the package which needs to be installed. Now open the package viewer app and look for the package name of the app which needs to be removed. You can remove the built-in bowser, calculator, compass, app market, music, roaming, video, weather, etc.
For example, if you need to remove browser, the command which you have to type is, 'pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.nearme.browser' then press enter. You'll see a message saying success. Bullseye! Happy bloatware removing!!
If you have any doubts, feel free to comment. I'll be happy to help you.
Thank you. Cheers.

There won't be any issues, coz the system update won't cause any changes to the apps.

You can remove the apps which are provided by realme, like their browser, app market, compass, roaming, weather etc. Don't remove any system apps. (Google related and framework related apps).

This is a really good info. Thanks a ton for this procedure of bloatware removal. I was really searching for root to remove these bloatwares. But without root this is awesome.

Tell me one thing, by same procedure can we install any app as system app?

For installing an app as a system app, you need root access.

Can you please elaborate on this further?

These are the apps I'm planning to get rid of, but due to the lack of adequate information I'm reluctant to actually uninstall them, anticipating whether the action may cause system wide instability.
  1. Clone Phone
  2. Game Center (however, I could NOT find any package name for this one on App Inspaector)
  3. File Manager (I want to replace it with Solid Explorer Pro)
  4. Messages (I want to make Microsoft SMS Organiser as one and only messaging app; hence, this one is important)
  5. Photos (want to replace it by Google Photos)
I tried deleting all of them once - which resulted me unable to select ringtone/notification/alarmtone of my choice - forcing me to factory reset the phone.

Yes, I know I can assign default apps through the app manager setting - but what is the point of keeping two messaging apps (or for that matter, two gallery apps)?

I need to have these information about the cross-dependencies of these apps with the system wide instability issues. Thanks in advance.
