Sharing what I have disabled or un-installed without issues so far:
Package com.mi.globalbrowser new state: disabled-user
Package com.miui.analytics new state: disabled-user
Package com.miui.backup new state: disabled-user
Package com.miui.cleanmaster new state: disabled-user

Package com.miui.msa.global new state: disabled-user
Package com.miui.notes new state: disabled-user
Package com.miui.player new state: disabled-user
Package com.miui.yellowpage new state: disabled-user
uninstall -k --user 0 com.facebook.services
uninstall -k --user 0 com.facebook.system
uninstall -k --user 0 com.facebook.appmanager
Package com.google.android.apps.googleassistant new state: disabled-user
Package com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox new state: disabled-user
Package com.android.hotwordenrollment.okgoogle new state: disabled-user
uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.subscriptions.red
Package com.miui.videoplayer new state: disabled-user

Note that I want to get rid of Google app, which improves battery life and privacy. This kills Google Assistant (which I don't use myself) and the Discover screen (which I don't use either).
Other Google products I use (gmail, agenda, phone, messages, map, drive, home) still work without any issues.

Well, to get rid of apps on android that you aren't "supposed to get rid of" (the ones that'll only "disable"), one must root their device with SuperSU or Magisk using TWRP.

If that's a success you'd wanna install Titanium Backup which not only backs up apps but can also delete "un-delete-able" apps.

As far as the Google app that BtB mentions, I don't get how it would improve battery life or even more outlandishly protect your "privacy" since it is Google's main focus to intrude on one's privacy.

On another note, somewhat related, I recently got a Moto G6 which came with tons of Google bloat. I did what I suggested to you to do, and I got rid of it all including the Google app (I do not see Google Assistant, on its own, in the app list on Titanium Backup). And I know this bit likely goes into the unpopular view, but I got rid of Google Photos in favor of a local app (that I can't seem to find the download for).

I don't have any detailed technology proof of what I say, but that's my 3rd phone on which I disable Google app and it yelds 10-20% more available battery after a day of use.
My theory is that this app is constantly updating data (for the discover feed, etc...), listening to you for the hey/ok google hotwords, etc... and disabling that improves battery life.
And as privacy goes, well, I know for sure Google is still slurping a lot of my data, but again, just having assistant off means it's not listening to me all the time :-D

So one suggestion... don't take my word for it, try it and let other know if you have similar results (I'm talking battery life, privacy cannot really be proved anyway).

I have a weird issue with pic/file sharing in Apps, meaning often I can not send (newly created) pics from Edit Apps to Apps like WhatsApp, etc.
It just does not post the image. "The sharing app did grant permission to access this file".
I suspect it is some image cache (new files) issue, since when I save the file after some time it works in some Apps. However I'm not sure if this is introduced by debloating many of the Xiaomi/MIUI apps.
Did someone experience similar issues?

Hello, I was trying to remove some bloatware and found this thread. I believe I'm having the same issue - for example, If I have a video on Telegram and want to share it on Whatsapp, it returns with a message saying "The file format is not supported". I just don't know if it's it happened because I uninstalled something that I shouldn't.

See Thread Poco X3 pro bugs
after turning on MIUI optimization, most of the problems are fixed.
Had to reenable the developer settings again by tapping multiple times on the MIUI version in the About 12.5.1 section.
Then Phone settings > Additional settings > Developer options > Turn on MIUI optimization (was off)
So I enabled that and so far checking it it really seems to solve the issue. Weird that this is causing such file sharing problems.

Hello all,

I have tested my script several times and it works properly. It removes all the Google and Xiaomi stuff except Settings, Camera, Security, Phone and Clock. Playstore was replaced with F-Droid store. Likewise, all the apps I needed were installed from the F-Droid store.

The script was created for the Bash under Linux. For Windows, the file extension can be renamed from .sh to .bat or .cmd.

Here are the links through which I informed myself.

    I now debloated Stock pretty extensively with Xiaomi ADB/Fastboot Tools (Szaki) ~ see what I left in the pic.
    Those pages are useful: selivan (last update 2020-11-23), technastic (MIUI 12 De. 2020), devcondition

    I just hope a good and updated AOSP/LOS based signature spoofing ROM (I like crDroid) will become available before I would like to update the sys.

    Well, to get rid of apps on android that you aren't "supposed to get rid of" (the ones that'll only "disable"), one must root their device with SuperSU or Magisk using TWRP.

    If that's a success you'd wanna install Titanium Backup which not only backs up apps but can also delete "un-delete-able" apps.

    As far as the Google app that BtB mentions, I don't get how it would improve battery life or even more outlandishly protect your "privacy" since it is Google's main focus to intrude on one's privacy.

    On another note, somewhat related, I recently got a Moto G6 which came with tons of Google bloat. I did what I suggested to you to do, and I got rid of it all including the Google app (I do not see Google Assistant, on its own, in the app list on Titanium Backup). And I know this bit likely goes into the unpopular view, but I got rid of Google Photos in favor of a local app (that I can't seem to find the download for).
