This de-bloating guide will help you start using EMUI 11 as clean as possible.
Please list packages in the comments section that you know is a bloatware and I didn't include in the spreadsheet.
This guide assumes that you're using Windows 10 as your PC OS.


BLOATWARE SPREADSHEET

To bring back software that you accidentally removed:
adb shell cmd package install-existing (com.package.name)

How-to for newbies


WARNING! Before following, make sure you have enabled the developer mode in your phone and enabled USB debugging.
(Go to Settings>About phone> click on Build number 7 times > go back > go to System & updates > Developer options > enable USB debugging)

1) Download Android SDK Platform tools. LINK

2) Create a new folder directly in C:\ drive and name it adb

3) Copy everything inside SDK Platform tools zip into C:\adb

4) Press WindowsKey+R, type cmd and press enter.

5) In cmd, type cd C:\adb and press enter.

Now you can copy and paste commands from the spreadsheet!

if you disable or delete HwImsService then you can not make volta calls
if you see "call not sent" that is the problem
if you did not wanna enable HwImsService then turn off volta and that it

Indeed, battery has drastically improved

Thanks for replying.

Which debloating list did you follow?
The Minimal Debloat or the "Somewhat Recommended" one?

Last question: did you notice any problem in any phone's functionality after you've removed that bloatware?

I've never tried to debloat a Huawei Phones, honestly I do not see too much uninstallable bloatware inside my Phone (P40 Pro European) but if I have noticed some battery improvement I probably will try.
Thanks for your help

Personally, I applied all of them. I did not lose any functionality that I use. It's better if you read the description before removing a program. But after all, you can bring them back if you encounter any problems.
Thanks for your guide bro, I've successfully debloated my phone with your spreadsheet.
Just another question, if I update my phone or I do a factory data reset may I experience some troubles?
Do you know if everything comes to stock when I do a factory data reset? (just in case I need to give my phone to someone or sell it)

Anyway, if you find some other service that can help our phone to perform better or save battery life please update this thread.
(There is another guide similar to this but without a spreadsheet would be nice to merge togheter your guide with that one).

Thanks again :)

When you factory reset all your apps will come back. And if you just followed this guide you will not have any update problems. I recently updated mine. I know that guide and my spreadsheet includes I guess all the programs that are included there +more

I have implemented most of the list and it seems that everything is kept in EMUI 12. I will see how it works and I will comment if I had any problems. Thank you so much!!

After a few days testing the phone after doing a minimum (green) + recommended (yellow) debloat. I had problems with several things:
  1. The weather widget was not working, nor could it be reinstalled (I fixed it from the App Gallery by changing the region to China).
  2. The Audio Accessory Manager application was not updated. (Same solution as above).
  3. The clock was not responding.
  4. I couldn't access the Apps settings, it froze. Fixed after reinstalling various Huawei services. I do not know to specify which were the causes.

In short, I do not recommend debloating except in the following cases:
  1. If you know exactly what you're removing.
  2. If you are going to use your mobile without a single function of Huawei applications.
  3. If you do not have other Huawei devices that require compatibility.

If you do not know for sure what each line of code are going to remove, but you still want to take a risk, I recommend that you start with a much smaller list. I give some examples, but some are missing.
  1. Browser (You can use Firefox or Chrome)
  2. Music app (Spotify or Youtube Music)
  3. Video app (VLC)
  4. Petal Search
  5. Meettime
  6. Assistant Today
  7. Ai Lens
  8. SIM Toolkit
  9. Mirror App
  10. Health app
  11. Email app
  12. Wallper app
  13. SwiftKey
  14. I have my doubts with the applications that begin with Hi... (Hitouch, Hifolder)
