Steps to Remove Bloatware on Xiaomi Phones

The Bloatware on Xiaomi phones can be removed in four ways. The first two methods do not require root permissions, while the third one requires root access. Proceed with any of the methods, as per your choice.

  1. Using ADB Shell Commands
  2. Using Xiaomi ADB & Fastboot Tool
  3. Using Android Applications

1. ADB Shell Commands to Remove Xiaomi Bloatware

  • Allow USB Debugging on your Xiaomi phone
  • Download the latest SDK Platform Tools on your computer
  • Extract the SDK Platform Tools file and then open the extracted folder
  • Open Commands Prompt (cmd) here. In Windows, you can do this by pressing Shift + right-click and then tap on “Open PowerShell Window here”.
  • Now, enter the following command
adb devices
  • Authorize the USB debugging on your phone, if prompted
  • Here, you will see your device
  • Now, execute the following command
adb shell
  • Execute the following command
pm uninstall --user 0 <package name>

[Note: replace <package name> with the name of the package you want to uninstall. We have already given you the list of useless packages, that you can remove here.]

  • You can delete useless packages one by one, using the above command. If you want to install all the services in one go then use the steps given below.
  • Download Xiaomi Bloatware File
     and then extract it using any of the ZIP extractors. You will see a file “MIUI Bloatware File”.
  • Change the file extension from ‘.txt’ to ‘.bat’ and save it.
  • Now, copy the file and paste it where the ADB and Fastboot files are located on your computer and run the batch file.

2. Using Xiaomi ADB & Fastboot Tools

Here’s another way of removing bloatware in Xiaomi phones. This method is comparatively easier than the first one.

  • Turn on USB Debugging on your phone through Developer options
  • Download XiaomiADBFastbootTools.jar file from Github and download the latest version of Java Development Kit (JDK) and install it on your computer
  • Launch the Xiaomi ADB & Fastboot Tools by double tapping on XiaomiADBFastbootTools.jar file
  • Connect your phone to computer using an USB cable
  • On you computer, you will now see a list of Xiaomi bloatware
  • Select the bloatware which you want to remove 
  • Tap on Uninstall button
  • Then, confirm the bloatware removal by tapping on “Yes”
  • After removal, if you face any problem, then open the Xiaomi ADB & Fastboot Tools and then tap on “Reinstaller” button to re-install all the deleted packages.

3. Using Android Application

If you have a rooted Xiaomi phone, the you can easily remove the bloatware through an Android app. Use any of the bloatware removal app listed below

All the three bloatware removal methods works for MIUI 10, MIUI 11, and MIUI 12. Feel free to clear your doubts/query in the comment section below.

  1. Hello, are all these apps safe to remove? I once removed the security app and my phone got in a bootloop, so I want to be sure it is safe to remove the bloatware apps.

        • No, I don’t think so as Gpay needs google services. So that will work. You shouldn’t delete any core Google apps and Core Mi apps like gallery or camera.

  2. You mentioned:
    >Do not install the following services, as it may lead to soft brick.
    > com.miui.securitycenter
    > com.miui.securityadd
    > com.xiaomi.finddevice

    These packages were preinstalled and when I removed them the device broke. The screen froze on MIUI logo after reboot.

  3. hello,
    I have uninstalled everything possible.
    My mobile works fine in general.
    but the only thing, when I activate the system Apps update. These are found, they are downloaded, but finally they are not installed…
    What “com” should I reinstall to normalize it?
    Thank you
    ps: xiaomi Mi 10t lite, miui global stable, sjseuxm, 6/1/22

      • Of course.
        after uninstalling the vast majority of what is indicated here above.
        the phone works well in all its functions, except in the action of updating the system applications that I have left without uninstalling the device.
        I receive the notification of the existence of these updates, but when I try to update they are unable to be installed (neither by Wi-Fi or mobile data, manual or automatic, nor by restarting).
        On the other hand, I can easily update user apps (play, fdroid, etc.)
        I deduce that one of the dozens (adb-shell) of removed command lines is responsible.
        Before I factory reset the device, I wanted to know if you had any idea which specific command could be responsible.
        PS: I am very sorry if I have not expressed myself better, this is not my language, and I have not practiced it for a long time.

  4. Is it safe to uninstall the com.xiaomi.mibrain.speech (XiaoAISpeechEngine), It’s starting to cause some inconvenience to me whenever I accidentally touch my Bluetooth Earphone.

  5. Hello ! At first thanks a lot for this tutorial, it help me well !
    I got an issue, after several tries, by using your .batch file, my phone is always stuck in a Bootloop.
    (I already tried to disable and after remove the most annoying bloatware – in my mind – manually, but I had an issue with my sms sending, they were extremely delayed)
    I never removed any ‘core’ app, I trust your list, maybe it need little update 🙂 ?
    I will continue my investigation …
    Thx and bye !
