    Would love some help ... I am rooted, with Magisk and Elemental kernel. I would like to return to stock, in order to exchange my 3a for the 3a XL. Problem is, I do not have access to a computer for adb commands. Is there a way to return to stock without a computer? Thanks.

    The Google search bar cannot be removed from the stock launcher. As was said previously, use a different launcher such as Nova or Apex, and it is easily removed by holding and dragging upward.
