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?

Reinstall micloud sdk it's a dependency for gallery app and recorder app too
package name: com.xiaomi.micloud.sdk
reinstall using this way

adb shell cmd package install-existing com.xiaomi.micloud.sdk

note: very late reply may help someone

How to reinstall

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.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

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:

Hi,

thank you very much. I accidently softbricked my phone while doing this, repaired it, but I am fed up with reinstalling.

1. What would be the best way to create a backup of this system, to be able to reinstall it?
2. What would be the best way to check if everything is still working? Is there a test tool?
3. Would it be possible to reinstall a system app, if something isn't working from TWRP or Fastboot?
4. Is this still working with MIUI12?

____________ worked fine with MIUI 12 german / european / global version (system restart went smooth ____________
(Mi Quick Apps) pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.hybrid
(Cloud Service) pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.cloudservice
(xiaomi framework) pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.xmsf
(MSA) pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.msa.global
(Analytics) pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.analytics

____________ worked fine with MIUI 12 but there can be problems in using the User Interface
(Themen) pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.thememanager

DO NOT TRY! IF YOU FIND ALTERNATIVE, PLEASE INFORM ME

____________ breaks boot !!! factory reset necessary ____________
Following Apps are trying to connect at least every 30 seconds to the outside, I would like to stop that, but If I uninstall that app, the system will break. Is there a way to deativate the internet access action of a certain app?

____________ adb: doesn't work, Failure (-1000)
(Hintergrundbild Karussel) pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.android.fashiongallery

It seems to be possible to disable those apps with Greenify from accessing the web: https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi...apps-background-network-t4162963#post83504019
but it doesn't seem to work after restart.

Thanks. Deleted everything listed and the system is alive. Also is it possible to correct somehow settings list, for example system apps updater doesnt work anymore, and I see no reason to have it there.

On POCO F3 / MiUI 12.5 if you uninstall com.miui.misound you will no longer be able to access Sound effects menu inside Sound & vibration settings page. It is actually useful page with Dolby settings and equalizer that you would want to have access to.

    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.
