OK looks good. So are all the 'yesses' in the 'safe to remove' column your own personal customization or did they come default from wherever you downloaded this file from?
the first work sheet is the general guideline on what is safe to remove without breaking the system / making the phone unbootable. the second work sheet lists the ones I went with. some of the items that are generally safe to remove might contain functionality that u would like to use. thats why its always good to go through the list and decide, whether or not you need the associated function.

if you've never used adb before, best to read up a bit on this topic, its a bit to get into but no black magic :)

here are two starting points for good adb tools ive used before:

So I'll be doing this soon. But I noticed that you uninstalled phone service, email and huawei backup.

Will this affect phone calls or contacts in any way regarding uninstalling phone?

I use an email client called bluemail. Will my emails be affected if I uninstall email?

Will huawei backup be affected if huawei backup is uninstalled?


Apart from that I came across this:

Is it better to download and install the adb packages from this link or the other links you posted previously?

phone service refers to HiCare, so its about Huawei service center, not the actual phone service. will not impact any phone functionality. since the 20x is out of warranty, no need for it.

email is just the stock android email app. if u use a different app like gmail or bluemail client (under its own app) then no need for the stock app. will not affect general email functionality.

huawei backup depends on you, if you use it. i myself do mostly manual backups i.e. via TItaniumBackup or autosync via Google Account, so no need for Huawei Backup.

as for the link u posted, its the exact same thread i linked to previously haha :)

So i installed a small adb package like 2mb big. But i right click on adb.exe and ran as admin. But the command prompt appears for a split sec then disappears. My pc recognizes my phone. Usb debugging is enabled also.

Should i install sdk tools which is 90mb big? On the link you posted it says i don't have to. That all i need is the 2mb adb and fastboot. How do i fix this?

u need to access adb.exe via cmd / command prompt. open cmd with admin priviliges, navigate to the adb folder and then use the adb command in combination with the options u want to execute it with.

Ok so I got it working finally! thank you for that. Just wanted to know what you think about some packages before I uninstall.

I have tmobile. Do you think its wise to uninstall 'com.android.partnerbrowsercustomizations.tmobile'?

I cant find a description for 'com.huawei.hiviewtunnel'. Whats it for?

Will removing 'com.google.android.apps.work.oobconfig' cause issues with google or gmail in any way?

Will removing Huawei Launcher cause issues even if I have nova installed as my launcher?

I dont use themes but I see you dont have it uninstalled on your list. Should I uninstall it?

hm lets see...

- partnerbrowsercustomizations should be alright, sounds to me like some ad / vendor related stuff
- com.huawei.hiviewtunnel is related to showing additional info on an image after snapping. havent seen any bad impact after disabling it.
- com.google.android.apps.work.oobconfig not sure, might be related to work profiles in android. havent seen any reports that it has a negative impact after disabling
- as for the Huawei Launcher, my suggestion: DO NOT remove or disable it in any way. firstly, huawei integrates its launcher very very tightly with the system, so even if u do manage to remove or disable it (highly unlikely already), it might break something in the system. even when u use a third party launcher i recommend keeping the default launcher as a backup, just in case.
- Themes is up to you. if you dont use it, u can just uninstall it, no harm. tried it before and all is well.

and dude, should be pretty obvious but: after asking and receiving answers for like 20 different questions, it wouldnt hurt to drop a like or two. just saying ;)

Yeah youre right! And i appreciate your feedback. I dont mean to flood you with bunch of questions. I know you have a life too. is it ok to ask a few questions every 1 or 2 days? btw i dropped you a like!!

Could you tell me what these are for and if theyre safe to remove?
> App Prioritizer
> Intent Filter Verification Service
> Initial Google Configurator
> First run Google Backup Confirmation

Will removing 'Stock Contacts' be safe? What is it exactly? Will it remove all my contacts?

Happy to help.

- Hibernator: Let me get back to you on that, its quite a long list haha. I basically included all apps that dont pop up regularly when using specific system functions. So basically just hibernate once after boot and done.
edit: attached zip with screenshots of all the hibernated system apps.

- App access options: By that I mean in the system settings under "Apps", check all permissions for all apps and set only the ones u really need and use. Also check App Auto-Launch options as well as Battery Optimization of Apps (can find all of those via the search function). It's a bit tedious to set everything up, but u only need to do it once at the start and afterwards just every time u install and set up a new app.

- 4G to 3G: Settings / Mobile Network / Mobile Data / Preferred network mode / Set "3G/2G auto"

- disable unnecessary apps via adb: that depends on your preferences and usage cases. but as a rough guideline, i followed this thread here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/guide-spreadsheet-remove-system-apps-through-adb.3870727/

    Anyone noticed a decline from 10 to 11.
    I cannot speak for the mate 20 x but I was a p30 pro user before and it had a huge impact on my battery, also speaks volumes as its all over the xda forum emui 11 battery drain on 11.0.0.140

    They have just got an update to. 147

    Reason I ask is since having the phone the battery is 91 percent on accubattery and all I've known is emui 11, I'm only getting sot or 6/7 hours on WiFi, no gaming
    Just YouTube, chrome, fb and reddit
    Did you buy this phone used? It's possible that your phone is used/refurbished without you knowing it!

    Many 3rd party resellers have actually been guilty of selling phones of such they repackage as brand new at the expense of the consumer unfortunately. This happened to a friend of mine who bought a "brand new, never opened" (note the quotes) mate 20x from ebay. He was quick to notice that it was anything but brand new. This could probably be you in your case.

    But there are very good battery cases that work very well in extending battery life of the 20x. I happen to own one which in addition to the native battery of the 20x, extends battery to 6 - 10 days on medium handling between charges. This is the one I have, check it out if you like it:

    Just to follow upon what you said, i got some questions for you;


    - So I downloaded hibernator. Which system apps did you hibernate?

    - You said to block apps from using access options that are not necessary. What do you mean by access options?

    - How do i switch from 4g to 3g?

    - What unnecessary apps did you disable through adb?
