New owner to a X60 Pro+, did a massive debloat/uninstall/cleanup to get this phone just how I wanted it, and almost went insane during the process. Long time android user, and tweaker, so this process should have been simple, but I never get that lucky.

Long story short, if I disable Power guardian (com.vivo.pem) via ADB, upon a reboot, I can't connect to anything Google related. Play store shows the can't connect satellite screen, any settings in most google apps say can't connect right now (Home / Search / Assistant / ETC. I couldn't quite find a De-Bloat guide anywhere, just a few suggestions posted here, in conjunction with apk export to see the names that lined up with the questionable apps.

Google play store, services, and related apks are all on the newest via apk mirror. This is 100% re-creatable. And after using the phone for a day, and not getting a considerable number of notifications, despite changing the background power settings and notification settings, I would like to disable this app. Phone is on the most recent updates, made a vivo account as well to keep gesture navigation with nova launcher. Logging out doesn't change behavior either.

Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed, can provide a list of disabled apps if anyone wants further specifics.

Maybe a similar problem?

My Chinese device is up to date and vivo.pem is disabled
