This project has been discontinued due to Ubuntu Touch maturing and no longer needing to be debloated. Thank you to everyone who supported this.

OLD THINGS THAT PROBABLY WON'T WORK ON THE NEWER BUILDS:


Auto-Debloater (Obsolete, do NOT use on newer builds)

Features
  • Remove mock contacts & avatars (you must follow up with a series of ADB commands to completely remove all contacts due to a python script that updates contacts that to my knowledge cannot be run via recovery).
  • Remove mock messages and call logs.
  • Remove mock media.
  • Remove most mock apps.
  • Little to no mock Unity lenses.

Part 1

Flash this via recovery.

Part 2

Due to a python script in Ubuntu Touch that updates the contacts, you must run these commands in ADB in order to completely remove all mock contact data. If you are asked for a password, it is "phablet".

Code:
adb devices
adb root
adb shell
ubuntu_chroot shell
su - phablet
manage-address-books.py delete
Official Ubuntu Touch Status
  • 13.04 "Raring Ringtail" & 13.10 "Saucy Salamander"
  • Preview and Beta
  • Mobile data works with some tweaks

Latest Preview Jenkins Changelog

On May 16th, alpha apps such as terminal and file manager will be released, so I'm not trying to remove any dependencies they may need.


How to Flash & Debloat
  1. Reboot into recovery.
  2. Make NANDROID backup.
  3. Wipe System, Data, Cache, & Dalvik Cache.
  4. Flash current for your device (whether it be official or not).
  5. Flash latest Root FS (raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip).
  6. Pull battery/turn off phone.
  7. Boot into recovery.
  8. Flash latest auto-debloat script.
  9. Follow up in ADB as directed to finish removing all mock contact data.
  10. Reboot system.
  11. Enjoy.


Downloads

Official Daily Builds

Download "raring-preinstalled-armel+YOURDEVICE.zip", "raring-preinstalled-armel+YOURDEVICE.zip.md5sum", "raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip", & "raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip.md5sum" from here:

Pre-Debloated Root FS (April, 23, 2013)

You can use this in place of the stock Root FS (raring-preinstalled-phablet-armfh.zip). These won't be uploaded often, only when there are big changes merged.

You can update it via ADB with the following commands (if you are asked for a password, it's "phablet"):

Code:
sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
