Universal Android Debloater v2.9.1

Description and information from the author:

"DISCLAIMER: Use this script at your own risk. I am not responsible for anything that could happen to your phone.

Summary
I try to maintain a universal tool which removes bloatwares on any Android phones by using ADB.
The main goal is to improve battery performance and privacy by removing unnecessary and obscure system apps. This can also contribute to improve security by reducing the attack surface. The script has a menu that lets you choose what debloat list you want to use. I strongly encourage you to take a look at the lists because the default selection may not suit you. All packages are as well documented as possible in order to provide a better understanding of what you can delete or not.
This script should be safe with the default selection. The worse thing which could happen is preventing an essential system process to be loaded during boot causing then an unfortunate bootloop. If you used the non-root solution, after about 5 failed system boots, the phone will automatically reboot in recovery mode and you'll have to perform a FACTORY RESET. So make a backup!
If you have a rooted device you can also physically delete the apks. Ironically this solution is safer because the script saves the apks before their removal. In case of bootloop you just need to run the script from a recovery with ADB support (e.g TWRP) and restore them.
In any case, you can NOT brick your device with this script! That's the main thing, right?

Features


Quick search among all the packages of an android device

Uninstallation of system/user packages (manually or with the debloat lists)

Logging:debloated_packages.txt, remaining_packages.txt, deleted_apks.txt (for root users)

NB : The non-root method is NOT a real uninstallation for system apps (see the FAQ)

How to use it

Read the FAQ!
Do a proper backup of your data! You can never be too careful!
Enable Developer Options on your smartphone.
Turn on USB Debugging from the developper panel.
From the settings, disconnect from any OEM accounts (when you delete OEM account package it could lock you on the lockscreen because the phone can't associate your identity anymore)



LINUX

Install Android platform tools and qpdf on your PC :

Debian Base:
$ sudo apt install android-sdk-platform-tools qpdf
Arch-Linux Base:
$ sudo pacman -S android-tools qpdf
Red Hat Base:
$ sudo yum install android-tools qpdf


MAC OS

Install Homebrew

Install Android platform tools and qpdf


You will also need to upgrade bash because Apple ships a very old bash version (3.2.57) due to licencing issues.
$ brew install android-platform-tools qpdf bash
You have to make the new bash version your default:
$ sudo echo "/usr/local/bin/bash" >> /etc/shells
$ chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash
Check if it works:
$ echo $BASH_VERSION


WINDOWS
Windows can't natively run bash script. Choose a workaround:

Method 1: Live Linux USB
Create a Linux Live USB. Boot your computer on it and follow the instructions of the LINUX section. If you are a new to Linux, this will be a good opportunity to discover this wonderful OS. I recommend Linux Mint: Instructions
Note: Just in case, I recall that you don't need to install Linux on your computer. You can do whatever your want direclty on the Live USB.

Method 2: WSL (W10 only)
This method consists of installing WSL, a compatibility layer for running Linux binary executables natively on Windows 10.
For now, there is no USB support in the WSL. This means you need to install both Windows and Linux platform-tools and force the use of Windows adb server.

Download android platform tools and unzip it somewhere. Add the folder to your PATH.
Install USB drivers of your device
Check your device is detected:

> adb devices

Install WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux) in order to be able to run bash scripts.
Install Android platform tools and qpdf from the Debian/Ubuntu shell

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
$ sudo apt install android-sdk-platform-tools qpdf

Check the version of ADB on Linux & Windows

adb version
You need the same version otherwise it will not work. It's very likely your Ubuntu/Debian ADB version is older than the Windows one.
Download the lastest linux platform tools from Google and replace your adb binaries with the new ones :
$ wget https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-linux.zip
$ unzip platform-tools-latest-linux.zip
$ sudo cp platform-tools/adb /usr/bin/adb
$ sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/adb
$ adb version
Kill the WSL adb server:
$ adb kill-server
And start the ADB server on Windows:
> adb kill-server
> adb start-server
> adb devices
Note: You can access your Windows files under /mnt/c/



Download the lastest release of Android Universal Debloater

Browse through the debloat lists to be sure the default selection suits you.
Run debloat_script.sh from a Unix terminal

$ bash debloat_script.sh
NOTE: Chinese phones users may need to use the AOSP list for removing some stock apps because those chinese manufacturers (especially Xiaomi and Huawei) have been using the name of AOSP packages for their own (modified & closed-source) apps.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will have to run this script whenever your OEM push an update to your phone as some uninstalled system apps could be reinstalled."
