How to remove the bloatware from your Android mobile without root

When we release a new mobile or tablet we see that in our Android device comes with a variety of pre-installed applications, and when we start to clean up that annoying bloatware to leave only the applications we want we see that some applications do not leave us or disable them.

Luckily you no longer need to be root to uninstall the applications from the system. We can uninstall all the bloatware thanks to the command line tool Android Debug Bridge that Google offers officially to developers. We tell you how.

Uninstalling system applications

Previous step

USB debugging

To be able to uninstall the applications from the system we have to prepare our Android device and our PC by performing the following steps:

  1. Activate USB Debugging.
  2. Install the USB Driver of your mobile.
  3. Download Platform-Tools and unzip your folder on your PC.

Instructions

Depuration

Once activated the USB Debugging, installed the drivers and downloaded the SDK tools, we only need to connect our mobile phone to the computer via USB cable and open a command window.

In the command window we have to enter the Platform-Tools folder and perform the following commands:

  1. adb shell
  2. pm list packages | grep "nombre del OEM/Operador/Aplicación"
  3. pm uninstall -k --user 0 "nombre paquete de la aplicación"

Example:

To uninstall YouTube as a system application, we enter the shell, look for the application named YouTube in the list and then uninstall it by entering the name of the complete package.

  1. adb shell
  2. pm list packages | grep youtube
  3. pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.youtubeow-
ADB
