hello everyone
i m very new to android. i m very keen on simplifiying something and very paranoid, so i have made a huge debloating on my xiaomi redmi 4x. i have uninstalled 90+ system apps including google accounts, play services, miui accounts, bluetooth etc. etc.
i use my device for only this apps: nova launcher, phone, sms, whatsapp, messenger lite, yandex maps, camera, recorder (including phone call) and web browsing (with firefox).

here is the thing, i cant stop myself going on debloating =) and wonder whether i can uninstall these apps or not, i have twrp 3.0 and a full back up incase anything happens. is it possible to break the device upto a point that can not be returnable via twrp by uninstalling any system app, or brick the device? thanks a lot..

android system webview
intent filter verification service
miui sdk
package installer
yellow pages
configupdater (i have nova launcher)
com.miui.home.launcher.assistant (nova again)
com.miui.translation.kingsoft (i use device in english)
com.qualcomm.fastdormancy (HDSP+ is nothing to me)
com.qualcomm.qcrilmsgtunnel (i wonder this app most)
com.qualcomm.qti,telephony.vodafonepack (i use vodafone but what is this ?
com.qualcomm.uimremoteclient (no miui remote, ir)
DMRegService (this one annoys me = )
fused location (i uninstalled this on my lg and yandex maps still running)
hybridplatform (no second or clone apps etc)
mmsservice (i dont use mms)
MQSAS (this consumes battery i guess)
org.codeaurora.btmultisim (i dont use two sim card)
performance -- com.miui.daemon
updater (i dont need updates)
upnp service
wt_secret_code_manager (didnt like the name)
xiamoi service framework
xiaomi sim activate service

When i uninstalled updater, the device asks for a name and password in the lock screen, what is that ??

if you would be so kind to answer at least one question, i would be gratefull

thanks a lot agaiin..

Anyone know what package gets rid of the functionality of recents and developer options? Tried uninstalling the most common bloat common bloat such as xiaomi apps and Google play services and a few from what OP posted.

If you want to remove play service and still be able to use the phone i suggest looking into microG otherwise you would start getting alot of FC
