De-Bloater

De-Bloater is an application using the power of Magisk to de-bloat unwanted applications systemless-ly.

Features

  • Easily remove system apps from “/system”, “/vendor”, and “/product” directories.

Requirement

De-Bloater requires Root Access and a fully functional Magisk environment, including modules, for proper working. As a result, De-Bloater won’t work with other rooting solutions as well as in Magisk core-only mode.

Initial release

How to Use

Open the app, click the remove button on each app you want to remove. The selected apps will be removed systemless-ly after a reboot. To restore an app, either Reset Module (on the top menu) or selectively restore from the second page. Please note that a restart is necessary to get any of the changes in effect.

How it works

The app will systemless-ly replace the selected APKs by making a Magisk module. As a result, you will see a new Module (name: De-bloater).

Troubleshooting

In case, if you accidentally remove some important apps and your phone bootloops, please delete “/data/adb/modules/De-bloater” via recovery.
