I research very thoroughly before i debloat (I google every app) and it's possible for some thirdparty apps to rely on the provided UI from the filemanager, somebody on a forum removed it and ran into the problem of the app crashing, it is obviously an edge case but just making sure...
For ? Do you know it ? If you don't know don't remove it. And if you know it , please write it next to the package, because i want to know what i remove, it's also good for learning
com.qualcomm.embms for example, is one of the FEW packages you can identify by googling. It is for LTE broadcasting, it is related to video streaming, why get rid of it ?
com.qualcomm.location , it must be intertwined with location services, why get rid of it ?
During a heavy debloat testing , removing com.oneplus.backuprestore broke my factory reset function. I had to reset via the bootloader menu.
Did you test your own list? ( I could be wrong on this one because during this test i removed a lot of stuff. )
com.oneplus.collectiondata - it sounds like spyware right but it is listed under systemapps together with phoneservices. Is it used for making the phoneservice work or is it spyware? Can you say for sure? Same goes for com.oneplus.diagnosemanager.Telephonediagnostic.
(I would have removed this one myself, but how would you confirm if it's not breaking something later down the line?)
Some stuff you remove also has no capability of sending telemetry, com.oem.logkit for example is only used by OP devs for bugs, you can remove it of course.
I think in general always say what a package does before recommending to remove it.
When it comes to anything else like com.oneplus.odm (seems proven to be op telemetry) pesky google apps, facebook, and the obvious stuff we're on the same page :good: I hope you don't see this as attack, we have the same goals.
Uim apps are for oneplus to connect remotely to help fix phone same as a pc tech would do when u ring to fix a pc they connect remotely.
Telephonediagnose and collectiondata app is self explanatory
Remotesimlockauth is if u lose your phone its related to find my mobile
Backupdonfirm isnt on my list as i know it relates to ota updates
Qtisystemservices is qualcomm bloat
Majority of the things on my list are data collection remote access and useless things i dont beleive is needed. Ive got this list applied now and eveything and app works fine.
Lte broadcast lol who streams there phone to a tv these days
Location services if you notice i remove every location app except fused location. My location works fine.
I install and remove apps everyday and have had no problems when i remove documentsui none what so every.
Sorry but i would not make a list if i didnt already test the list myself extensively
Everything within the list i have provided is safe to disable.
In the exception of google keyboard install an alternative before disabling google keyboard i siggest simple leyboard by simple mobile tools.
Documentsui is googles way to see see whats on your phone, its an extension to file manger which just shows a different UI.
So no it doesnt affect anything by disabling it. If you use the .cmd file provided you wont have to reset anything.
None of the disabled apps on the debloat list affects any kind of use of the phone
adb shell cmd package install-existing com.google.android.documentsui
Simple Keyboard is better. Functionality seems identical (both are based on AOSP), but Simple Keyboard uses way less RAM.
Bad idea to disable. This package makes your data connection stability way more reliable. It handles seamless handoff between connection types, grating uninterrupted connection even when for example turning off Wi-Fi.
This package is vital for using multiple user profiles on the same device. Not everybody uses that, but it's a bad thing to disable, because it only runs once on boot and not in the background beyond that.
