Hi guys I wanna share with you this awesome app developed by wangqi060934 that you can find for free on the play store.

LINK: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cn.wq.myandroidtools&hl=it

With this app you can enable or disable any app services, receivers, activities or providers and so having full control on your personal or system apps.

I have been using AOSPA since Chirag built it, but I have never reached the 4.26 hours with my normal daily usage till I disabled those fu***** play service processes and then Android OS percentage has fallen down and no more wakelocks.:highfive: (See the attachments)

I found this app interesting because now I found a way to disable some Google Play Services processes which drain a lot of battery and use a lot of ram. I'll show you how to do this right now.

SERVICE

This is divided between third party & system and contains all services. Near every app name there is a white, blue or red number.
The white shows the total number of services, the blue shows the number of active services and the red shows the number of disabled services.

RECEIVER

This section is divided among Actions, Third Party & System. Also here, near every app name there is a white number that shows the total number of receivers and a red one that shows the number of disabled receivers.

GUIDE TO DISABLE SOME GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES PROCESSES WITHOUT LOOSING ANY FEATURES AND GAINING RAM & PRECIOUS BATTERY GUICE

Open SERVICE section and tap on System;
Find Google Play Services and tap on it;
Disable those services

Code:
AdRequestBrokerService
AnalyticsIntentService
AnalyticsService
FusedLocationService
FusedProviderService
GeocoreService
GeofenceProviderService
GoogleLocationManagerService
NlpLocationReceiverService
SystemUpdateService
WatchdogService
WearableControlService
WearableService

Open RECEIVER section and tap on System;
Find Google Play Services and tap on it;
Disable those receivers:

Code:
AccountChangedReceiver
GServicesChangedReceiver
SystemUpdateService$ActiveReceiver
SystemUpdateService$Receiver

As you can see I have disabled the google analytics, that pratically is useless (but it takes 26 mb of ram) and most localization processes but If you do these steps in the right way, your localization service, gps, will continue to work properly. (see the gps status screenshot attached below)

I hope that this has been useful for all of you , and guys be careful when you disable things! :cowboy:

In Google Play Services - RECEIVER section I have ConnectivityReceiver and PowerConnectedReceiver already disabled, not sure why because it is the first time I tweak Google Play Services.

I think you can verify these entries and eventually add them.

Excellent tool!
Does it activate after boot?
I can see receivers from frozen apps, does this mean they also bloat the system, even frozen?

Testato su s3 e note 3 neo, con grandi risultati.

Tested on s3 and notes 3 neo, with great results.

Well, good to know that:)

Yes, all your changes will be applied after reboot.
Deleting an app is better than frozing, the frozen app itself remains on the device, is just "blocked" but the junk is always on your phone

Works fine on s3

I have noticed that some applications such as Prezzi Benzina require that GoogleLocationManagerService is active so that the geolocation functions properly. Who uses this function should not disable it.

Free other 75 MB of RAM on NeatROM 7.9 ;)

To disable the automatic startup of the app: Reciver-> Third Party -> "App Name" -> remove tick from BootUpReceiver / BootReceiver


Ho notato che alcune applicazioni come Prezzi Benzina richiedono sia attivo il servizio GoogleLocationManagerService affinchè funzioni correttamente la geolocalizzazione perciò chi ha necessità di questa funzionalità non lo disabiliti.

Risparmiati ulteriori 75MB di RAM su NeatROM 7.9 ;)

EDIT: per disabilitare l'avvio automatico di app: Reciver->Third Party->"Nome App"->rimuovere spunta da BootUpReceiver/BootReceiver

Any help to disable any unuseful Play store service would be appreciated.:good::p
InAppBillingService ( it cause lot of wake locks .. you can disable it with out any problem ...and if u want to buy any inapp purchase just enable this for that time only and after purchase over u can disable it )

LicensingSevice ( u can disable this IF you didn't buy anything OFFICIALLY from play store)

these 2 are enough and after that greenify playstore.. it won't cause wakelocks ..enjoy ;)

I've got a problem with my wifes rooted galaxy s4 on Stock...

I installed this app at my own s3mini, disabled the recommended services and made a backup.
Then I brought this backup to my wifes s4, installed MyAndroidTools and restored the settings.
After that I've got security warnings want me to update security policies - I guess it's Knox. I tried to enable the services again, but some wont. Every now and then this security warning is coming up now... I've uninstalled MAT but the warning remains...

Furthermore her WhatsApp shortcut was gone while Whatsapp was still working... I needed to unistall and reinstall WhatsApp to bring back the shortcut...

Does anyone have an idea how to restore the system as it was before- or to bring Knox to silence again?

Factory reset?

But first try to uninstall app, and reboot the phone.

    Tested on Android L (5.0 & 5.0.1)


    After you disabled all you should only have GCM service running as you can see on the screenshot (for a working playstore)

    Sorry for late answer.
    I found the problem.
    It is "Xposed"
    When running LP 5.1.1 without xposed, everything is well(myandroidtools running)
    Installing xposed - myandroidtools broken.
    what a mess.

    @andray750 It seems that I found the real cause - the APK is protected by some very weird Chinese protection software. I made a consistent change to ART for Xposed, but as they seem to rely on certain internals, it broke the app. If you (or anyone else who is using the app on 5.1 / arm) has the time to test a possible fix, please check out the last comments in https://github.com/rovo89/Xposed/issues/102

    I disabled theese services too (without problems for now):
    SERVICE section, System; Google Play Services:

    BrokeredFitnessService
    FitnessSyncAdapterService
    ConfigFetchService
    SyncService


    and Reciver -> System -> Google play services:

    FitnessInitReceiver
    WaerableSyncServiceReceiver
