I wanted to try the software, but Fsecure detected the file as a virus. Maybe some potential dangerous libraries used in the package?

Checked the file on virustotal: Almost all scanners (including Fsecure) report it as safe. So I assume it's safe. I tried to re-download the file, Fsecure kept silent this time.

It's the antivirus's job to protect its user. But sometimes they can be too paranoid. No dangerous libraries here - I only used my own code in ADB AppControl. But the adb.exe binary file is included with the program may be a sufficient reason for alarm. Just so you understand, version 1.7.1 has been downloaded by thousands of users and is completely safe. Rest assured, my reputation is important to me ;)
I will try the zipped source too, and otherwise run it from a sandbox.
I'm not sure that it will work from sandbox. The program wait for a usb connection event to connect to device.

I use VMware as a sandbox, I can connect usb devices from the host. It will work, did this many times before. But in this case it seems false alarm (I edited my post) because virustotal was totally fine with the file :) Thanx!

strange, even on 1.7.1 it will not uninstall or disable com.huawei.parentcontrol on my Huawei... would be great if this could be rectified, thanks
 
ADB AppControl ??
Easy management of android applications with a user-friendly interface. Can do almost everything you dreamed about with applications.
A handy and free PC program that will allow you to easily manage applications on your android device using your PC and ADB. You can disable unnecessary pre-installed system applications and bloatware, or install new ones using a modern graphical interface. And even more - with each new update, more and more functions appear in the program! This is exactly tool that you will use for many years - after trying ADB AppControl you will see that working with ADB has never been so easy.

System requirements: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and .NET Framework 4.6 or newer.
Works with any types of Andoird devices (smartphones, tablets, TVs, etc)!
Requires Android 7 or above.
I am working on Android 6 compatibility.

NO ROOT NEEDED!


Links and Manuals:

Quick start: Launch program, enable usb debugging on the your device and connect it by usb cable to PC. Click the Enable Network Debuging button (upper right corner) to connect to the device over the network.

User's Manual

Extended Version

Support the project


Important:

On PCs with Windows 7, if your device can not connect via usb, you need to install adb driver (I recomended to use my brand new Driver Installer)

Support device with android version below 7 may be limited.

To connect to the device by IP
, first connect it via usb to the program and click the Enable Network Debugging button.

When you connect the device for the first time, the program will prompt you to install the ACBridge application.
This is my service application for android to provide data exchange between the device and ADB AppControl on a PC. It must be installed in order to be able to display application icons and their names, instead of their packages names like com.android.app. You can also use the program without ACBridge, but you will lose some of the cool features (no icons and no application names). Now ACBridge comes with the main program, but in the future I plan to add it to the Play Market.

Le programme a une version étendue avec des fonctionnalités intéressantes.
Il a été créé spécialement pour les utilisateurs qui aiment le programme et qui souhaitent plus de fonctionnalités.

Some permissions are failing to be set.. do I need to be root to set them?
For instance, Android Setup let me disable "ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" but not "ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE". The ones that work will turn off but the ones that fail will pop up in an error message.

Hey, some permissions are set in the app manifest by developer and you cannot change them. But you can manage dangerous runtime permissions, like a storage or contacts access, through ADB AppControl. You can't to revoke the ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE permission, use a firewall app instead.

I've wanted to unistall Chrome od my Realme GT 5G because of battery draining and it looks like I did it (the app and the google bar dispappeared) but in my battery status there is still a com.android.chrome app with battery usage around 41%.
What am I doing wrong?

I tried uninstalling Google Fit from my Fossil Gen 6 watch. However, even after it's uninstalled successfully, the app still shows up in the watch's App list. What can I do to remove it completely? I want to downgrade the app to an earlier version but the earliest version that I could uninstall through Play Store is 2.56. I want to uninstall the app and sideload from an old apk.

Hi, in Android system you can't completely uninstall system app without root rights - its installation apk remains. Just uninstall your apps through ADB AppControl and they won't work and run. It's the good and safe way to uninstall apps, because you are always can restore them.

I would love to see a "partition explorer". Is this even possible?
I know, this is "App control", but you seem a wise developer. :)

Hey guys, a little announce of 1.7.2 update here :)
I've fixed a few important bugs and improved the app install menu. You can also see that the name of the saved apk now includes version. I hope to release it in 2021. Please, give me your feedback and bug reports if you have them (maybe I can fix them in time for this update).

    There are scripts to run with the method I described or from another phone or anything that can run adb binaries to access your phone and do similar actions.

    .. but this is easier, this can mass restore apps etc.

    Nothing can replace Titanium Backup, but there is also Swift Backup that does many things with non-routed and more with rooted phones. You should check it out too.

    ADB AppControl 1.7.2 Well, it's time for another year....
    you kept your word. congratulations! wishing you a productive 2022.

    I Just used this last week on my NEW OnePlus 8 . Worked well, was able to get most the bloatware off the phone (not much bloat really). So I did not have to install a ROM. First time I'm actually use any corporate rom software. I did have to reinstall google as I need android auto (AA) to work and AA seems to need some google stuff to work. Very happy, your GUI is 'easy' to grasp, no surprises. The 'save APK' option in case of emergencies takes some of the stress out.

    Hi, everyone!
    I continue to work on update 1.6.3 and has already made some important fixes.
    A new option will also be added - Accurate application sizes. Now ADB AppControl gets applications using adb shell dumpsys diskstats command. It does not always provide actual app sizes and may not work on some devices. Now it will be possible to get current sizes directly via acbridge.

    Dear friends!
    🌎 Today, the 1st year anniversary as ADB AppControl released on XDA.
    For me it became an important day, because it was August 15, 2020 an international release of ADB AppControl occurred, and I remember how excited I was that day. Development began in May 2020 and it was a small project for me and my friends from 4pda forum. But users really liked my program and I must had to share it with the whole world. I want to express gratitude to those who are all this time supported me - with your support we have this powerful and useful tool now.

    Also, thanks to the great XDA forum - you are awesome, guys!


    If you are interested, then under the spoiler you can look at the first versions of ADB AppControl.
    Sorry, that is not English, then I have not yet knew that thousands of people around the world will be used by my program.

    This is the 1.0 version. It doesn't look good, but it really works!

    In the 1.2 I improved the design and fixed some bugs (and added new)
    1_2_3-1.jpg
    1_2_3-2.jpg


    You are lucky, here on the XDA you immediately saw version 1.4 with icons and app names :)

    Now we have the modern looking 1.6.5 version with useful Debloat Wizard and many other great features.
    2021-08-15_164953.jpg


    However, I don't plan on stopping. I will go further and make this tool even better. I have gained a lot of invaluable experience during this year and now I can do much more!

    I also made a Special Edition of ADB AppControl especially to the anniversary.
    This is the common 1.6.5 with a modified "retro" design. Just download the file, unzip and place .exe file in the folder with ADB AppControl 1.6.5. Run it and enjoy!
