Looking for possible ways to remove bloatware on the phone. Leaving the stock rom as I am thinking with the little support out there in these threads that it is buggy at best.

With the phone dropping to $125 on Amazon I was thinking that maybe some support/interest would pick up on a unique device like this one. Especially with the Galaxy Fold becoming a total flop.

Thanks,
Blake

I'm very tempted to pull the trigger, as for that price, seems like an option to buy into the foldable phones (compared to $2000 sasmung and $2600 huawei) and if somehow this gets a port of Android Q which supports foldables, might be quite a nice device despite it's faults.

However, despite being sim unlocked I don't see a way for bootloader unlocking, which would be a pre-requisite for any custom development...

I wonder if someone tried some of the stuff that's available for the Axon 7, as my guess would be that they are probably rather similar on HW level (excluding the second screen and lack of second camera)...

Jemini thank you for the adb shell commands. Is there a way to figure out the names for other programs? I want to get rid of drive mode, play movies and TV, drive, and a couple of others.

Separately I got rid of Google but had to add it back in for Android auto (only use it when traveling) from the play store. I was hoping I would be able to delete it when through since it wasn't a system app now. That does not appear to be the case as it won't let me delete it. Any thoughts on how to fix that or is it just case of I will need to use the shell command every time?

Really appreciate this command list. One of the biggest issues I have is I want to make the display size smaller, this is possibly a DPI issue, the smallest font and display options for me are still too big and I'd like to be able to fit more on screen.

Thanks guys.

This phone deserves Android 10

Preview:
It's a great phone actually strong hinge and that second screen is dope. The only problem I'd have with it Ultimately is the OS verison. Android 7.0 is too far back for me. Sense Android is now embracing the foldable phones they should definitely give this phone a well needed OS update.

Has there been any progress with this? I repurchased this phone and really hope someone has made an attempt or successfully rooted. With updated Android this phone would actually have some potential.
