You must downloaded adb, and install the adb drivers

1. enable developer options and turn on usb debugging
2. open command prompt > type
Code:
adb devices
if the device is detected by the computer then the name will appear, if it is written unauthorized then press allow on the popup on android screen
3. type
Code:
adb shell
4. type the command
Code:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 $packagename
example, this will uninstall google duo
Code:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.tachyon

some commands that i've run
Code:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.tachyon 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.photos 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.videos 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.music 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.docs 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.vivo.browser 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.bbkmusic 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.vivo.appstore 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.vivo.easyshare 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.iqoo.secure 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.vivo.website 
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.vivo.email

application name from top to bottom:
Code:
google duo
google photos
google play movies
google music
google drive
vivo browser
vivo i music
v app store
easyshare
i manager
vivo.com
vivo email

To find out the packagename of the application you can use Package Names Viewer in your android
This is actually not uninstall the apps but just disable from the system and will not prevent you from getting OTA updates
After factory reset that apps will be enabled again

Can I disable the default keyboard? Or is it going to create problems when entering passwords using secure mode?
For that you dont need to try out "adb " commands.
Just download Gboard from playstore. After that Go into

Settings > Language and Input > "Enable" Gboard.
Choose Input method> Gboard - multilingual Typing
Go to "More" under settings> applications > Default app settings > Input method > Gboard
If you like to use "CTRL" "ALT" "Shift" etc type of keyboard, then you can download "Hackers Keyboard" or any other keyboard of your choosing.

why uninstalling bloatware hasn't boosted my phone's performance?

thought that uninstalling bloat ware might boost my phone's performance so i ended up uninstalling every app that i dont use ( including creepy wisdom engine and touchpal, replaced with gboard) there's even no RAM consumption in the background . but phone still sucks .......:confused:

Thanks, Links for ADB download?

Hi,
Thanks richard yusan for a detailed guide. Am totally new to the Vivo forum. Could you please indicate where to download a good copy of adb drivers for the Vivo from.
Although doing my research I came across this post in another forum https://www.cyanogenmods.org/how-to-install-twrp-and-root-the-vivo-z1-pro/ but didn't want to try it on without knowledge of the systems first.

Additionally, I realised much of the terms used in the Funtouch OS are different, and one wrong choice in the middle of the path somewhere has the potential to leave you stuck (If it doesn't brick the phone).
For example, instead of what the forum lists as
Settings>>System>>About Phone>>Tap on Build Number 7 times. Now you need to go back to Settings>>Advanced Settings>>Developer Options>>enable USB Debugging.

What I could get was the following
Settings>>More Settings>>About Phone>>Tap on Software Version 7 times. Now you need to go back to Settings>>More Settings>>Developer Options>>enable USB Debugging AND ALSO Developer Options

Maybe this is all very intuitive, but like I said, for a Noobie like me, even this is a steep climb in knowledge :eek:
