These are quick instructions on how to disable some of the Redmi NOTE 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro Bloatware. Root is NOT NEEDED and a UNLOCKED bootloader is NOT NEEDED to accomplish this. If there are anymore packages that are safe to disable that need to be added to the list just post a reply on this thread and i will add it to the list
Please keep this strictly REDMI NOTE 7 and REDMI NOTE 7 Pro orientated only.

1) install fastboot and adb on your PC
fastboot download: (https://www.xda-developers.com/google-releases-separate-adb-and-fastboot-binary-downloads/)
fastboot/adb installation/usage instructios: https://www.xda-developers.com/install-adb-windows-macos-linux/

2) once you have adb running and working with your device run the following commands to remove the desired packages.

Code:
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.tachyon # Google Duo
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.music # Google Music
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.videos # Play Movies
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.browser # Mi Browser
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.bugreport # Mi Feedback

Hi, Thanks for the easy instruction. How is the device working after reinstalling all the mentioned apps?
Stable? better performance? better battery? any error or problem? please let us know the difference?


Never mind, I used Saki_EU's Xiaomi ADB/Fastboot Tools and uninstalled many apps already. No problem, more free RAM now!

seems like you dont have your phone device correctly setup. make sure u have BOTH usb debugging enabled AND your computer authenticated to allow your PC to make USB debugging tasks....you can find it on your phone from developer options. youtube or google how to run and install adb

remove bloatware

Thanks for the guide it came pretty handy when i needed it, for the fellow members that want to follow the easiest path there is a Java-writen tool for xiaomi devices.
Xiaomi ADB/Fastboot Tools by Saki_EU there is a guide in xda forums for download link & tutorial.

Hi, followed the instructions.
Phone immediately got stuck in boot loop to redmi recovery 3.0 screen. Rebooting repeats process.
There is a "Connect with MiAssistant option", but this application does not recognize the phone. In the forum for the app some people say that the english version will not connect with newer versions of android (as in the redmi note 7)

So I kind of just lost my phone now, rather than improved it.. Not sure what to do now, I did not want to get into unlocking the bootloader and flashing roms as I'm not comfortable with that and really don't trust it to actually work.

Any advice would appreciated, thanks.

i doubt it was any of those packages that have you stuck in a boot loop as they are non system apk's. however if you want to restore your phone back to OEM, just grab the OFFICIAL MI TOOLS from XIAOMI and flash the latest firmware. https://xiaomifirmware.com/roms/miui-roms-for-xiaomi-redmi-note-7-lavender/

Each time I run your command, adb says “adb error device null not found”. BTW, I had flashed TWRP and vbmeta image via adb/fastboot without any problem.

    Is there any way to remove the four features at the top of your recent apps shade? Cleaner, security scan, deep clean, manage apps.

    You can go into Settings, Home screen and recents then untick show suggestions

    i dont know if someone already ask this,



    removing the bloatware with this process- will it void the warranty?
    I don't think it will, because you're not tinkering with the bootloader. You are just uninstalling some apps
