What do you mean not working? What happens? because I tried it now on my A72 and it works.
I should've been more clear, my mistake.

On the latest update, CVDC, the Remote Support option is back. I've re-enabled Tips, then disabled, following the given steps. Remote Support is still there even after completing the ADB commands.

In short, I don't believe adb shell settings put system remote_control 0 is working on the latest update.

Can someone explain what all functions would be disabled by doing these commands? I tried googling it but could only find general stuff.

DISABLE MOTION ENGINES
- adb shell settings put system master_motion 0
- adb shell settings put system motion_engine 0
- adb shell settings put system air_motion_engine 0
- adb shell settings put system air_motion_wake_up 0

It's confirmed, software update services causes the stuttering and frame drops. I removed mine and it's now fixed.
It's a crucial feature of course, we can't just give up on that, so you can either live with the stuttering until next update, or delete the responsible apps and follow the links below to know when to restore them to update (we'll restore them after next update).

The responsible apps are the following:
- com.wssyncmldm
- com.sec.android.soagent

From next update on, presets will have them "deleted". You can always preview the preset before applying, and you can uncheck them before applying the new updated preset if you want to keep them.

#HOW TO CHECK FOR UPDATES
-
CheckFirm App
- Galaxy S21 Subreddit (people post their updates frequently on reddit)
- Samsung Docs (you can edit the link with your model & country csc)
- Sammobile (or search for your phone manually)
- SamFrew (or search for your phone manually)
Good afternoon!

Are these recommendations still relevant for improving system performance and smoothness? And if relevant, then why don't you add these procedures to the main topic?

And which applications\services\services (except game services) have the greatest impact on system performance and smoothness?

For myself, I highlighted the following:

com.samsung.android.game.gos
com.samsung.android.game.gametools
com.sec.android.smartfpsadjuster
com.wssyncmldm
com.sec.android.soagent

Hi, does anyone know the answer to this please?

In this section..

Fix Google Apps Battery drain​

Go to Settings, Apps. Enable "show system apps" then look for each of:
"Google Play Store", "Google Services Framework", "Google Play Services", "Chrome", "WebView" & "Google App".
- Clear data & cache
- Uninstall Updates
- Force Stop
- Reboot, let them update and follow setup.
- Turn Sync Off
- Auto Update Apps: DISABLED

..how does uninstalling and letting those system apps reupdate help with battery drain? Do they reinstall to the same version (if so, then how does it help?), or are you meant to keep them at an earlier version by turning off auto app updates?

Today I had an intensive day and when I say intensive I really mean intensive. So I recorded ALOT and played some games and looked on instagram twitter etc
I couldnt get past 4h sot. Keep in mine that every time the phone heats up it just eats alot of battery and thats like the Main reason for this low sot
If they ve provided a good cooling solution we ve got an impressive battery/performance. But what can I say?samsung really digged their grove this time

    Here's my personal comparison review from switching from S21 exynos to Pixel 6:

    What's better on Pixel 6 (After full optimisation):​

    - Battery.
    - Camera processing and rough situations handling.
    - Clean and smooth software (Been on Android 13 since April).
    - Performance/Heat management.

    What's better on Galaxy S21 (After full optimisation):​

    - Build Hardware & structure.
    - Telephoto lens, i miss that zoom capability.
    - The screen experience in general.
    - The form factor, in hand feel and ergonomics.
    - Software options (i miss some OneUI features).
    - Speakers.
    Still updating ...

    If you want a striped out Samsung you can go nuts and disable every apk in sight but I don't see a good reason to do this for most users.
    Case in point, Finder uses no resources unless used. It's a very useful app when you need it.
    Screenshot_20220721-083150_Package Disabler Pro.jpgScreenshot_20220721-082747_Settings.jpg

    Target the power and resource hogs that serve you no purpose. Dependencies... are there any for the apk you're killing?
    Otherwise you'll at the best you'll spend a lot of time back stepping, at the worst never realize some of the devices capabilities or ease of operation.
    If you have hundreds of disabled apks, you likely killed a lot of useful features.

    Has anyone tried Naptime, specifically (Doze Google Play Services) to optimize battery life?

    I'm on S22, and I seem to have delayed notifications. Wonder if this is obsolete anymore, or are there fixes/workarounds for this.

    Thanks
    As a rule of thumb

    Google Play Services is usually set to "Not Optimized" by default because it provides some core functionality that you may not want to lose when your phone enters 'Doze Mode'. Most notably, FCM, the service many apps use for notifications, is bundled in with Google Play Services.​
    This means that if you use this mod to enable Battery Optimization (and thus, Doze) for Google Play Services, you may not receive prompt notifications from certain apps in certain circumstances. When your phone enters Doze Mode to preserve battery life while the screen is off, apps like Gmail and Social Media 'fluff' apps may take longer than normal to notify you of new messages.​
    N.B.: You are free to choose which apps to bypass doze within the app.

    Google play Services, something I wuv to hate.
    It's always nibbling at the battery.
    Normally I disable it and enable only to get Gmail, use a few parasite apps that need it, or even more rarely to go to Playstore.

    Samsung Text Messages apk works fine with it disabled on my N10+'s but they are on Android 9 and 10. On higher versions may not work but likely will unless you disabled a needed dependency. Don't disable anything that isn't hogging the battery. Junk Digital Wellbeing, Emergency Alerts... just kill em.
    If you need notifications for more than text messages... Houston we have a Google Play Services power drain.
    Pick your poison.

    Hello,

    i think its Off Topic.. but i have called with an Samsung Guy because my batter is draining so much with my S22 Ultra. He have found out that a service called IMS Service draind my battery.. in App Info i have here an value from 12% used since last full recharge, and i think thats why i can see this service kill my battery.. is this service necessary? i don't want to make calls via LTE etc..

    thanks for help :)
    IMS is a general-purpose, open industry standard for voice and multimedia communications over packet-based IP networks. It is a core network technology, that can serve as a low-level foundation for technologies like Voice over IP (VoIP), Push-To-Talk (PTT), Push-To-View, Video Calling, and Video Sharing.

    Arguably, IMS suppose to be a good thing. It is required for SIP over 4G, which is digital voice, or VOLTE. Conventional voice calls are made over 4G but fall back to 3G for the voice component. To create greater bandwidth for digital protocols, with 3G pretty much eliminated for use in cellular telephone, and might be reserved for low-bandwidth, legacy IoT communication in critical applications such as security, medical, seismic, mining, remote control, and emergency alert, including 911, 311, 988 services.

    Sometime this year - if not already, no cellular device lacking IMS will register on any US nationwide carrier network. Some countries are now forcing devices to have IMS.

    N.B.: Even though it's not a Samsung property - I do not recommend removing/disabling this.

    Epic! Please describe all of the ADB commands you followed?
    I did however, follow all the ADB commands that are suggested in OP. I'm running on FHD+, Adaptive Motion Smoothness (via Galaxy Max Hz app), Processing speed set to Optimized. Enabled CPU Responsiveness, enabled performance limit. I know it sounds crazy, but I get the best of both worlds with the performance limit ON and CPU Responsiveness ON, the phone is insanely fast and battery is great. I tried different combinations and this has been my best result in terms of battery life and I'm still at 42%. My benchmarks are still 1200, 3400.

    No power saving. No adaptive power saving. Adaptive battery off. No adaptive brightness. I have a bunch of apps in sleep and deep sleep. Mostly WiFi since I work remotely and some light LTE usage. I turned off 5G. I manually set RAM Plus to 1GB. Dark Mode and my Location are on at all times.

    S22 Ultra US Unlocked Snapdragon 512gb.

    Here are all the commands I used:

    2 - Disable Background Scanning​

    - adb shell settings put global ble_scan_always_enabled 0
    - adb shell settings put system nearby_scanning_enabled 0

    3 - Unlock RAM Plus Configurations​

    - adb shell settings put global ram_expand_size_list 0,1,2,4,6,8,12,16
    Reboot then go to settings and set RAM Plus to 1GB.

    5 - Disable Motion Engines​

    - adb shell settings put system master_motion 0
    - adb shell settings put system motion_engine 0
    - adb shell settings put system air_motion_engine 0
    - adb shell settings put system air_motion_wake_up 0

    7 - Disable User Manual​

    - adb shell settings put global online_manual_url 0

    8 - Extra battery​

    - adb shell settings put global app_standby_enabled 1
    - adb shell settings put system mcf_continuity 0

    IV-B - EXTREME BATTERY OPTIMISATION

    3 - Enable Performance Limit​

    - adb shell settings put global restricted_device_performance 1,1

    IV-P - EXTREME PERFORMANCE OPTIMISATION

    2 - Enable Improved App Responsiveness​

    Changing processing speed in settings disables this
    - adb shell settings put global sem_enhanced_cpu_responsiveness 1
    12
    NO BLOATWARE REMOVED. I reinstalled all the bloatware I previously removed and then updated my phone to One UI 4.1 AVC8. This is with no bloatware removed, so imagine what it'll be when I disable over 100 system apps.

    I did however, follow all the ADB commands that are suggested in OP. I'm running on FHD+, Adaptive Motion Smoothness (via Galaxy Max Hz app), Processing speed set to Optimized. Enabled CPU Responsiveness, enabled performance limit.

    I think the adb commands help more than debloating the phone based on my results.

    I made the switch to Google Pixel 6 today

    Pretty sure @Dj daudi , @Kris_b1104 and the others are plenty capable of answering all th questions. I'll make a modified copy of this thread for Pixel too. Good bye guys, take care of this thread for me.

    Some of those apks on the block list just sit there and do nothing unless needed.
    You need to know what you're blocking and if it really needs/should to blocked.
    Dependencies, dependencies, dependencies, the app names and functions can be deceiving.
    Samsung's have so many features you may never realize what you lost and for little or no gain.

    The Google system and user apps are some of the worst offenders.
    1- I have been uninstalling apps over adb for a long time now, and from a functionality standpoint, they don't interfere with the user experience, but on the contrary, uninstalling them improves the experience.
    2- There are no apps that "just sit there", they all will consume power and resources on the background, only noticeable on the long run.
    3- This is an extensive, maxed out and extreme list of bloatware, you can of course choose to skip some of those apps if you need them, your use case may be different then mine.
