Step #1: Enable developer mode + USB Debugging

  • go to the OnePlus 7 Pro device ‘Settings’ > scroll down and open the ‘About Phone’ option.
    o to the ‘Build Number’ and tap 7 times on it
    get a message on your screen that you are now a developer - go back to the Settings menu again > scroll down and tap on ‘Developer options’
    tap on ‘USB Debugging’ > turn on the toggle to enable it.

Step #2: Download platform-tools - go to any of the following links and download platform-tools and extract the content

Step #3: Open cmd as Admin - Press START and search for 'cmd', right-click and 'Run As Administrator'

Step #4: Change the cmd patch to where the platform-tools folder - type 'cd patch of platform-tools' and press ENTER

Step #5: Enable adb shell - type 'adb shell'

  • pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.oneplus.gamespace
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.oem.nfc
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.nfc
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.documentsui
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.printspooler
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.oneplus.brickmode

I assume gamespace is game space
WHy would you uninstall the NFC?

What is documentsui?
What is printspooler?
What is brickmode?

And why would we want to uninstall them?

The safest thing is to freeze them with Titanium backup. Yes, i have freezed google music and other google spam apps. Would be happy to freeze all telemetry apps. If Anyone has a list, would appreciate!

How do I get back an app that I uninstalled?

I have uninstalled documentsui, and photos is asking for SDcard permission and crashing because I have uninstalled it. :(

I fixed it. Got the APK from another device, installed it and made it a system app. :) :)

Two question:
1. You're ona OP7T, right?
2. How did you "make it" a system app?

Thanks.

But any way to simply "Freeze" apps via abd? I am on a OP7T

I would not disable Printspooler..disabling it freezes Bluetooth and device connections - menu.

I know it's been a while since you asked #2, but there is a Magisk module that uses a terminal emulator to turn a regular app into a system app App Systemizer

    well it uninstalls the desired apps but removing some can lead to boot loops. i can't say which ones because i keep the bloatware
