Improving on what I (and some others) found was the v2.5 script not working. I made some changes and now it works fine for me and others.

You might need the other original files here (adb.exe + the .dll files), but those old .bat files from the .zip won't work. Use the one below.

I do not have permission to link files here on XDA and I do not want to rely on a file host that people will complain about, so just copy-paste the below code into a new .bat file.

Bash:
@echo OFF
set s=---------------------------------------------------------------------------
set m1= [v2.6.5] Script made By luontokoodaus, RaimondoMartire and Pervokur

To enable an app again. Simply replace the first "0" in the line with a "1" and run that line on its own.

Please do not argue about politics or other off-topic nonsense in this thread.
Post if you need help and I will see what I can do.

Thanks.

__________________________________

EDIT 1: Restored the V-Play store (Vivo store).
EDIT 2: Restored default SMS app (you can't get SMSes without it).
EDIT 3: Restored the Network Monitor app so taskbar network speed widget works again.
EDIT 4: Removed duplicate lines.
EDIT 5: Reverted edit 1 because the app store is highly annoying, mostly in Chinese and spams notifications constantly. It also does not need to be installed to get system app updates.
EDIT 6: Added some sneaky thing I saw running: cn.com.omronhealthcare.omronplus.vivo

Good idea starting a new thread.
As I just received my phone, I am going to debloat tonight.
Is any functionality broken with this script or it is considered a "light" debloat? I'd rather leave the phone as it is and live with the occasional Chinese language than having any issues.

And to be clear, do I just copy/paste into notepad and save as .bat - then replace it with the old .bat file in the download link above?

You can delete the adb shell service call package 131 s16 com.android.mms i32 0 i32 0 for not delete the sms app

Good stuff.
Though I'd keep V-Appstore (com.bbk.appstore) simply because I had problems after removing it. Like the package installer being broken making it impossible to install third party apps. I have no idea why uninstalling the Vivo Appstore breaks the package installer, all I know is that the issue was gone after I restored the Appstore.


Btw @luontokoodaus if you want to upload your script to xda, just compress it in .zip and then you should be able to upload it.

"After removing, also search settings for "Default App" and then change all those normal apps eg. for Phone, Messages, Gallery etc. to something else. Otherwise some things won't work or open.

You need to look for the setting in the phone to allow the default launcher to be changed also and then change the Middle bottom navigation button to stop opening the default launcher again.

I'll make a new thread about all this here, let's all continue there. As always YMMV."


Sorry, I don't quite understand this part, would you mind elaborating?

When you have removed these apps with the script. You need to search the phone's settings for "Default App" and then change all of the ones it had set before. Otherwise things won't open now that those apps are gone. You need to replace eg. the SMS app you removed with the script, with a new one of your choosing in your phone's settings which you downloaded. Not sure how I can make it any clearer than that.

Yes that's exactly what I said. You could just run the .bat yourself without anything if you have adb installed. The old files just come with some .dll library files and a copy of adb.exe for Windows users if you don't have it installed already. Absolutely no functionality is broken from what I can find. This just removes apps that you likely cannot use (are not available outside China) and cannot read (in Chinese) anyway.

Yeah maybe it is good to have that app if it updates system apps as well, like some of those which need to be kept. I just removed everything with Chinese text. I removed that App store line from the script, so it won't remove it now.

it remove also the vivo store , the SMS app vivo , but work perfect

The SMS app was tagged as spyware by some other users. I also think it is safer to just remove it and use another app. It does ask you for permission to basically record all of your data when you open it (if I remember correctly). I just got an open source SMS app to replace it with.

Hello OP, thank you for creating such a useful script. If I have already installed all the apps I need to use and the phone is working normally, do you recommend I run the script at this stage and clear all the bloatware on the phone? Or, I should just factory reset it, clear the bloatware then reinstall the apps I use? Thanks.

If you want to factory reset it, it's usually always the safest option if you really don't mind the hassle. Otherwise, this script ONLY removes apps which are on the list and were on the device when you got it. So any apps you already got rid of are just skipped. It will pick up any in this list which you didn't/couldn't remove yourself the normal way.

So I cannot really recommend what you should do. It is up to you.

Thank you very much, I have successfully debloat without factory reset and so far everything works fine except for the com.android.mms. I have restored this and my SMS is working normally.

Thank you very much, I have successfully debloat without factory reset and so far everything works fine except for the com.android.mms. I have restored this and my SMS is working normally.

I came here just to post this. I realised today that I was not getting any SMSes for eg. confirmation codes. I had to restore this app and then came back to remove it from the script, but it seems you beat me to it. It seems that without this app, it is impossible to get SMS messages.

I tried another app "Simple SMS" which is free and open source, but it would give me the error "Could not save to telephony database" whenever I tried to send something. Another app I tried simply said "Cannot send SMS". Messages sent to any of my 2 SIM cards in my phone would also not be received. As soon as I enabled this: com.android.mms app again I got blasted with a bunch of late SMS messages.

I tried changing the app then to "Simple SMS" (after restoring the com.android.mms the phone ships with) and as soon as I got an SMS I got a notification "We have changed the default SMS app back for your security". So for some reason Vivo is stupidly set to change the app back. No idea why because I gave the FOSS app full permissions and said in the phone device settings to choose the default SMS app as Simple SMS.

If someone finds a way to fix this please let me know because I don't want to use the default Vivo SMS app. Seems it really wants to connect to the internet and share all my contacts to its servers etc.

All clear now - thank you so much for the help. Got it debloated yesterday and haven't noticed anything weird.
The only thing that worries me is that it won't let me add my mastercard to google wallet (via Starling Bank). Tells me to contact the bank somehow.
And Nova keeps going back to stock launcher

Hello,
I applied this script, but now I don't have anymore any default keyboard app it seems. And can't search on google Play to install one as at each call of Keyboard it seems killing the app I was in... What can I do? Should I do a reverse? How? What else should I install first before launching the script? Launcher too?
Ok, solved. I found which one to reactivate. That would be good to have a description of each one. Then if well understood, it's not removing them, just activating or deactivating in the OS. Thanks

    In other news. I returned my Vivo X90PP due to this issue: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...pp-phones-bought-from-tradingshenzen.4574915/

    As such, I won't be updating the Debloat script any longer. It does its job at removing almost all of the bloatware/Chinese apps/etc. and without risking any damage to the user's phone. Because I'll be getting a new phone (global Xiaomi 13 Ultra), I likely won't be posting in at least this subforum any longer either. Except to give final update on how the return and refund process went with Trading Shenzen.

    Big thanks to those who were supportive and helpful in improving the scripts and guides I made. It's a shame that this place suffers from a handful of people though who have nothing better to do than derail threads. mislead people, argue and cause drama. Big thanks to the mods though for all the hard work they do at cleaning up.

    If the mods deem it necessary and appropriate. Please feel free to lock this thread and let people start another one.

    To enable an app again. Simply replace the first "0" in the line with a "1" and run that line on its own.

    Please do not argue about politics or other off-topic nonsense in this thread.
    Post if you need help and I will see what I can do.

    Thanks.

    EDIT 1: Restored the V-Play store (Vivo store).
    EDIT 2: Restored default SMS app (you can't get SMSes without it).
    EDIT 3: Restored the Network Monitor app so taskbar network speed widget works again.
    EDIT 4: Removed duplicate lines.
    EDIT 5: Reverted edit 1 because the app store is highly annoying, mostly in Chinese and spams notifications constantly. It also does not need to be installed to get system app updates.
    EDIT 6: Added some sneaky thing I saw running: cn.com.omronhealthcare.omronplus.vivo

    In other news. I returned my Vivo X90PP due to this issue: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...pp-phones-bought-from-tradingshenzen.4574915/

    As such, I won't be updating the Debloat script any longer. It does its job at removing almost all of the bloatware/Chinese apps/etc. and without risking any damage to the user's phone. Because I'll be getting a new phone (global Xiaomi 13 Ultra), I likely won't be posting in at least this subforum any longer either. Except to give final update on how the return and refund process went with Trading Shenzen.

    Big thanks to those who were supportive and helpful in improving the scripts and guides I made. It's a shame that this place suffers from a handful of people though who have nothing better to do than derail threads. mislead people, argue and cause drama. Big thanks to the mods though for all the hard work they do at cleaning up.

    If the mods deem it necessary and appropriate. Please feel free to lock this thread and let people start another one.

    hello, yes, thanks, I saw.

    how come now there is no more need to disable com.vivo.pem ?
    There are several ways to fix issues on Android. Doesn't matter what problem it is, there are multiple solutions. Some people are too stubborn to accept this. They're talking about things they don't know, blaming people if they don't agree with them and spreading wrong information.
    Just try different things and keep whats working for you. You are definitely not the only one here who reported this tutorial doesn't work.

    Telling you to take another browser for example shows the cluelessness. But nice to see you fixed it yourself.

    "After removing, also search settings for "Default App" and then change all those normal apps eg. for Phone, Messages, Gallery etc. to something else. Otherwise some things won't work or open.

    You need to look for the setting in the phone to allow the default launcher to be changed also and then change the Middle bottom navigation button to stop opening the default launcher again.

    I'll make a new thread about all this here, let's all continue there. As always YMMV."


    Sorry, I don't quite understand this part, would you mind elaborating?

    When you have removed these apps with the script. You need to search the phone's settings for "Default App" and then change all of the ones it had set before. Otherwise things won't open now that those apps are gone. You need to replace eg. the SMS app you removed with the script, with a new one of your choosing in your phone's settings which you downloaded. Not sure how I can make it any clearer than that.
    Good idea starting a new thread.
    As I just received my phone, I am going to debloat tonight.
    Is any functionality broken with this script or it is considered a "light" debloat? I'd rather leave the phone as it is and live with the occasional Chinese language than having any issues.

    And to be clear, do I just copy/paste into notepad and save as .bat - then replace it with the old .bat file in the download link above?
    Yes that's exactly what I said. You could just run the .bat yourself without anything if you have adb installed. The old files just come with some .dll library files and a copy of adb.exe for Windows users if you don't have it installed already. Absolutely no functionality is broken from what I can find. This just removes apps that you likely cannot use (are not available outside China) and cannot read (in Chinese) anyway.

    Good stuff.
    Though I'd keep V-Appstore (com.bbk.appstore) simply because I had problems after removing it. Like the package installer being broken making it impossible to install third party apps. I have no idea why uninstalling the Vivo Appstore breaks the package installer, all I know is that the issue was gone after I restored the Appstore.


    Btw @luontokoodaus if you want to upload your script to xda, just compress it in .zip and then you should be able to upload it.
    Yeah maybe it is good to have that app if it updates system apps as well, like some of those which need to be kept. I just removed everything with Chinese text. I removed that App store line from the script, so it won't remove it now.

    it remove also the vivo store , the SMS app vivo , but work perfect
    You can delete the adb shell service call package 131 s16 com.android.mms i32 0 i32 0 for not delete the sms app
    The SMS app was tagged as spyware by some other users. I also think it is safer to just remove it and use another app. It does ask you for permission to basically record all of your data when you open it (if I remember correctly). I just got an open source SMS app to replace it with.
