My device is the Mi 9 Lite, purchased from eBay Germany and I have Global Miui 11.

Going to make this a list of packages which can be removed and/or what they do as much as I can.
If you try any of this keep in mind this is a WIP and I say be cautios. The worst that can happen upon removing EVERY single mi-related package is,
your phone hangs up, you have to boot into recovery and factory reset. Meaning you should back up your data beforehand but that's literally all.
I did that several times in a row but I was able to narrow down apps you don't particularly need unless you use them.

You have to connect via adb shell and I'm not going into that because there is plenty of guides out there.
There was an incredibly useful article on Fossbytes, just look it up.

These packages that can be removed safely, the phone will boot just fine and I notice not a single issue.
Keep in mind that if there's apps that you use you obviously don't wanna mess with those:


pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.browser # the default Browser
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.calendar #Mi Default Calendar
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.soundrecorder #This is the Recorder app.
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.facebook.appmanager # Facebook

pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.facebook.services # Facebook
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.facebook.system # Facebook
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.mi.android.globalFileexplorer # the default Mi Explorer
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.mi.android.globalminusscreen # this is the mi screen to the left e. g. App Vault in settings. Now enabling App Vault does nothing. Bless :good:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.audiomonitor # removed no issues
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.bugreport #I still get report windows when settings crashes.
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.calculator # Mi Calculator

pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.compass #Mi Compass app

pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.glgm #Mi Game Center
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.xmsf #Mi Cloud Framework

The following packages should not be removed or at least they broke something:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.providers.calendar # not safe to remove, messes up the clock and can't use either calendar nor download from playstore anymore
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.finddevice #issue: pop-up bubble "FindDevice has been destroyed" According to Google breaks boot and have to factory reset
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.notification #warning: this will break notification settings and make them inaccessible
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.miwallpaper # Mi Wallpapers. Update: Not neccessarily broken but it removes the default app for Wallpaper selection and makes setting a new wallpaper obnoxiously complicated. First you have to use a different app like Google but then it's not guaranteed that you can change your lock screen wall.


Upon removing one of the following packages my phone stopped booting and I had to factory reset:

pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.securityadd # Security Center
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.securitycenter # Security Center
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.securitycore # Security Center


And here's the packages which are still open for experimentation, the list is very small now and if somebody wants to give it a spin I would very much appreciate it:

pm uninstall -k --user 0 android.autoinstalls.config.Xiaomi.pyxis
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.lbe.security.miui #Auth Manager

pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.freeform: Experimental feature which can be enabled on the developer settings on Android 10, it can be used on the calculator app, uninstalling it didn't cause issues
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.msa.global: Analyzation of user behaviors, uninstalling it didn't cause issues
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.vsimcore: Not sure what this is, uninstalling it didn't cause issues
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.joyose: Not sure what this is, uninstalling it didn't cause issues

Xiaomi Mi CC9 / Mi 9 Lite
Thanks for the original post, I uninstalled like two third of those apps without any issues as well. Adding few own observations:

-- removed in addition to the original post (just different distribution of "extra apps") --
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.netflix.partner.activation # Netflix Partner Activation
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.tachyon # Google Duo
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.huawei.hwvplayer # Huawei(!) Video player
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.instagram.android # Instagram
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.hybrid.accessory # another part of Xiaomi Quick Apps


-- few minor explanations/correction to the original post: --
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.misound #Mi Audio Player --> actually "Headphones and sound effects" app, probably safe to remove anyway but personally I rather kept it
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.player #don't know what this does but I've removed it no issues --> this is the Music Player
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.payment # removed no issues --> part of Mi Credit


-- different opinion - apps which were reported as safe to remove but since I don't have any system backup I rather kept them (reasons below) --
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.gallery # this supposedly limits means how to set wallpaper for lock screen. Can anyone confirm?
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.tencent.soter.soterserver # no matter how I would love to get any Tencent app from my phone this seems somehow relevant to authentication and stuff so I am rather keeping it. https://github.com/Tencent/soter


-- can be added to "open for experimentation", noticed them but did not try to remove them --
pm uninstall -k --user 0 org.codeaurora.gps.gpslogsave # GPSLogSave, don't have any info about this
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.wapi.wapicertmanage # WAPI certificate, don't have any info about this
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.egg # Android Easter Egg, sounds safe to remove if you can miss the fun
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.emergency # Emergency Information
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.htmlviewer # System HTML Viewer, according to other sites should be safe to remove (on other devices) but it is not recommended

Gallery app crashing after debloat (I think I need some help please!)

Hello. I've removed some apps from the safe list only, but I got Gallery app crashing now. Do you guys have some thoughts about how to solve this issue without having to reinstall the entire ROM?

Sorry for asking, but the apps that I uninstall, get automatically installed when an update is applied?

No, nothing to update if uninstalled.

---------- Post added at 08:51 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:46 AM ----------

I froze com.tencent.soter.soterserver, no problem with authentication in Google Play Store. Maybe this is for some China app store, which I don't use anyway.

Redmi K20 Pro
MIUI11 / 11.0.3.0 MIXM

So far removed these without any issues:

App: Analytics
Package: com.miui.analytics

App: Browser
Package: com.android.browser

App: Facebook
Package: com.facebook.appmanager
Package: com.facebook.services
Package: com.facebook.system

App: Games
Package: com.xiaomi.glgm

App: Gmail
Package: com.google.android.gm

App: Google Drive
Package: com.google.android.apps.docs

App: Google Duo
Package: com.google.android.apps.tachyon

App: Google Play Movies
Package: com.google.android.videos

App: MSA
Package: com.miui.msa.global

App: Mi Credit
Package: com.micredit.in
Package: com.xiaomi.payment

App: Mi Pay
Package: com.mipay.wallet.id
Package: com.mipay.wallet.in

App: Mi Recycle
Package: com.xiaomi.mirecycle

App: Music
Package: com.miui.player

App: PartnerBookmarks
Package: com.android.providers.partnerbookmarks

App: Quick Apps
Package: com.miui.hybrid
Package: com.miui.hybrid.accessory

App: Translation Service
Package: com.miui.translation.kingsoft
Package: com.miui.translation.xmcloud
Package: com.miui.translation.youdao
Package: com.miui.translationservice

App: Yellow Pages
Package: com.miui.yellowpage

App: YouTube
Package: com.google.android.youtube --using vanced instead


And disabled this;
App: Services & feedback
Package: com.miui.miservice - was listed in settings so disabled just in case it left a dead link. Looks like the link disappears when it's disabled - but keeping it disabled should I need to send feedback.


Curious as to what com.mi.health is...
com.xiaomi.mi_connect_service, com.xiaomi.miplay_client, com.milink.service and com.xiaomi.joyose are also mysterious.

Force uninstalling GetApps (com.xiaomi.market) on K20 Pro Premium (Chinese) through XiaomiADBFastboot cause system being destroyed, and It can't be disabled as the command fails each time. Any help?

Great guide banes768, thanks!!

>>> pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.finddevice #issue: pop-up bubble "FindDevice has been destroyed" According to Google breaks boot and have to factory reset
I confirm after I uninstalled finddevice, boot was broken. F*CK!

pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.vsimcore: Component for the application from the item "Mi Roaming". Not yet removed by me, but I think it's quite safe to remove
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.joyose: Joyse Analytics and advertising. Uninstalled with no issue.

Never ever even try to uninstall xiaomi.finddevice, it's an app that does many things apparently, under the guise of supposedly being a simple find device app ... grrr, hate this package. It cannot be frozen too, all I can do is use a Tasker task to deactivate it from Device Admin during boot.

I unistanstalled it because I never activated and used it, but after I uninstalled my device didn't boot up. After full reinstalling all, I tryed to activate and use it instead of Google Find Device. Never have it worked. I hate it. Using Google app, and it is working ok.

The following is my list of "experimantal" apps safe to remove:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.analytics
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.msa.global
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.touchassistant
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.joyose
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.mirecycle
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.simactivate.service

    If you try any of this keep in mind this is a WIP and I say be cautios. The worst that can happen upon removing EVERY single mi-related package is,
    your phone hangs up, you have to boot into recovery and factory reset. Meaning you should back up your data beforehand but that's literally all.

    Thanks for the original post, I uninstalled like two third of those apps without any issues as well. Adding few own observations:

    -- removed in addition to the original post (just different distribution of "extra apps") --
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.netflix.partner.activation # Netflix Partner Activation
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.tachyon # Google Duo
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.huawei.hwvplayer # Huawei(!) Video player
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.instagram.android # Instagram
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.hybrid.accessory # another part of Xiaomi Quick Apps


    -- few minor explanations/correction to the original post: --
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.misound #Mi Audio Player --> actually "Headphones and sound effects" app, probably safe to remove anyway but personally I rather kept it
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.player #don't know what this does but I've removed it no issues --> this is the Music Player
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.payment # removed no issues --> part of Mi Credit


    -- different opinion - apps which were reported as safe to remove but since I don't have any system backup I rather kept them (reasons below) --
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.gallery # this supposedly limits means how to set wallpaper for lock screen. Can anyone confirm?
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.tencent.soter.soterserver # no matter how I would love to get any Tencent app from my phone this seems somehow relevant to authentication and stuff so I am rather keeping it. https://github.com/Tencent/soter


    -- can be added to "open for experimentation", noticed them but did not try to remove them --
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 org.codeaurora.gps.gpslogsave # GPSLogSave, don't have any info about this
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.wapi.wapicertmanage # WAPI certificate, don't have any info about this
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.egg # Android Easter Egg, sounds safe to remove if you can miss the fun
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.emergency # Emergency Information
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.htmlviewer # System HTML Viewer, according to other sites should be safe to remove (on other devices) but it is not recommended

    App: YouTube

    And disabled this;
    App: Services & feedback
    Package: com.miui.miservice - was listed in settings so disabled just in case it left a dead link. Looks like the link disappears when it's disabled - but keeping it disabled should I need to send feedback.


    Curious as to what com.mi.health is...
    com.xiaomi.mi_connect_service, com.xiaomi.miplay_client, com.milink.service and com.xiaomi.joyose are also mysterious.
