As a thank you to everyone who kept posting articles about debloating MIUI, I want to share a list of safe to remove apps for Poco X3 NFC [MIUI Global 12.0.8 Stable]. Note that I use Mi Home and Aqara apps, so I had to keep some of the Xiaomi stuff. Also I will not go into detail about what these apps do, because there are tons of articles for that already.

List of Xiaomi apps that I have disabled via adb (no root required):

Also tested on Redmi Note 9 Pro (MIUI Global 12.0.2 Stable). I use Nova launcher, so additionally disabled Xiaomi launcher (com.miui.home).

Has anyone tried removing Poco Launcher, and seen if that will help Gestures work with Nova Launcher on Android 11? My only desire to remove it is to get Gestures working on Android 11 using Nova, like it did before.

There must be something which it uses to determine what the system launcher is (not default launcher).

Guys, I've a newbie question...

It happened to me also some months ago with MIUI EEA A11 12.0.8.0 and a couple of days ago with MIUI EEA 12.5.2.0 too.

Previously I was using the 12.5.2.0 installed at the end of August '21. Normally I convert the ROM to RW ( Read & Write ) by TWRP scripts in order to be able to manually change some things... :sneaky:

After changing to RW the ROM, normally I uninstall some unuseful system apps, like Google Duo, Google Play Films, Google Podcasts, Google Photo, etc.

I've noticed that after a clean install of 12.5.2.0 over the same version, the uninstalled apps of the previous rom continue to be uninstalled on the new clean installed situation. It's normal this behaviour?

Usually for a clean install, I proceed to:

* wipe Cache / Dalvik / Data
* flash the ROM
* format Data
* prevent TWRP replacing
* convert ROM to RW

without wiping System partition. I suppose this is the reason... But I would like to ask your opinion if it's possible. (y)
