The update from MIUI 11.0.9 to 11.0.10 has changed some pre-installed apps. I have uninstalled more apps now including their unnecessary settings.

Please pay attention: This time I have not uninstalled com.miui.gallery, as somebody warned me that it leads to a bootloop. But I havent experienced it in 11.0.9. In this version 11.0.10 I am more cautious and I let the gallery app untouched. Nevermind, I dont neet the MI Gallery, because I prefer the open source Simple Mobile Tools from Fdroid or PlayStore: www.simplemobiletools.com I recommend the open source Lawnchair2 from PlayStore as alternative launcher. There you can hide MI Gallery app.

My device has no root, no custom ROM, just the original MIUI global. The Xiaomi App-Updater works. So I suppose OTA to MIUI12 will work too!

The debloating leaves you with a very clean phone at least you have only a handful apps installed on your MIUI homescreen. A good start!

My "old" list for MIUI 11.0.9. is here.

I also recommend: Xiaomi ADB/Fastboot Tools by Szaki, a simple tool for managing Xiaomi devices on desktop using ADB and Fastboot. There you find many of the debloated apps, that I have noted in my debloating list, although my list digs deeper in some areas.

If you are interest in the meaning of an app, simply search for it in a search engine of your choice e.g. startpage, duckduckgo, qwant etc.

Thanks for this. I am planning to buy Indian version (RN9promax). It'd be great if you can give a brief description of what features each uninstalled/disabled app removes from phone. Most are self explanatory but some need a bit explaining. Thanks.

Hi there gerega,

Care to answer a few queries:

1. Things to be taken care of before preforming these, IF any?
2. Apps disabled why, uninstalling creates issues?
3. What improvements noticed, besides bloat gone away?
4. In simple words which apps were removed and where did you later install them from......Play store, F Driod etc?
5. is a reboot required after uninstalling and disabling, each time?
6. Pros over unlocking bootloader, TWRP, Root and a MIUI 11/12 stable ROM?

Thanks again.
Regards!!

Please look for yourself. Simply copy the app file name in a search engine and then you get the answers. Took me a long time to find and I havent copied the info separately.

Of course!

1. Nothing, you must know how to setup adb of course or run a jar-file, if you use the solution by Szaki.
2. Apps disabled, because I dont know, if I might probably need them anytime later.
3. Nothing more positive that I am aware of. Of course I hope that there is less personal data sent to Xiaomi.
4. The apps I remove completely (uninstall), are the ones I dont need them at all. So there is no need to reinstall anything for me. PLaystore, apkmirror should be fine though.
5. It is okay to reboot at the whole end.
6. No pros I think, but my aunt needs a new phone and I need a working phone that I wont be able to administrate, so it needs to be running stable.

WARNING:
i found a minor issue with my debloat list. The Mi Gallery stops working. Seems as if a dependent app is missing. Will check it tomorrow.

Thanks for taking out the time to reply.

A few more questions from an old man!

1. Do the Android/Google apps and MIUI services/apps be installed in 1 go, or one could uninstall them in a staggered way...the reason for asking is to see the stability and not for errors to appear. Than one would not know which was/ is the culprit?

2. How do you figure out like in case of Mi Galler that's stop working to see for the dependent app missing?

3. I have a SD card installed, and am signed into Xiaomi Cloud ......do I need to take care of anything?

4. Are google apps and ad apps like FB, Linkedin etc linked to Xiaomi sending data?

5. Are the uninstalled apps a clean uninstall or leave remnants behind?

6. Since you are so smart, why don't you create a deblaoted MIUI ROM, I would gladly purchase/donate? Never used a Xiaomi before, am used to Oneplus.

7. How long does it take to debloat from your list.......can it be done using Team Viewer?

8. I dont play games on the phone, just for normal calls, texting, browsing and social network apps like Whatsapp, FB, Messanger, Instagram, Linkedin, Snapchat, Twitter, Skype, VLC, Chrooma KB, Accu batt Pro, CPUZ Pro, Greenify Donation and Whicons, use Brave browser, and google apps installed are Chrome, Photos, Drive, Maps. I use Nova Prime or Lawnchair as recommended by you, no weather but Yr.no, none compass, screen recorder, etc provided by stock Xiaomi.

9. RAM usage never exceeds more 3.8 of 6 gigs. Internal storage free is approx 101 GB of 128.

10. Want a clean, stable trouble free ROM, as Lineage OS for Oneplus.

Thanks again.
Best regards!

1. Windows unable to install drivers for RN9Pro......any links?
2. Szaki tools downloaded, but won't detect the phone or get connected, realized Brave has no Java installed....is that correct?

Thanks again.

Your questions:

1. in one go! Just copy paste. If it gives you an error, read it. Most common errors: the package is not installed etc. Nothing to worry about!

2. A bit of logic thinking and then trial & error. I have found the package that caused the error and have just removed it from the debloating list! (com.xiaomi.micloud.sdk must not be removed from the device!)

3. Depends on what you want.

4. Of course. Since Snowden leaks we know that everything that can be will be collected and sent home. I want to minimize and I am very privacy orientated.

5. Please read the manpage of pm. The -k option keeps all config files. I dont need them so I deleted those files too.

6. No interest in it.

7. Once you got adb working: about 2 minutes, just copy & paste Once you start debloating you will literally see it on the "desktop" how the files disappear.

8. You need to figure out, what you dont want to uninstall and delete those lines before executing them.

9. Okay

10. So you might maybe give LineageOS a try. You wont get it any cleaner than that.

2. If you are on Windows, you need to install Java:

Thanks again for replying.

1. Since I use google apps, won't it be good to uninstall only MIUI and advertising apps?

2. OR would be better in your expert opinion to uninstall all including google apps and than reinstall ones required to get a clean phone?

3. Java gets installed in Chrome but doesn't work, despite uninstalling Ad blocker...strange.....would try it with IE.

4. Can I omit Google lens?

Shall keep you updated.
Best regards!
