Remove system apps

Hi@all,

i have a pixel 4XL, rooted and running LineageOS 17.1 (based on Android 10) I don’t have a Google Account and have only been using F-Droid for a short time.

Is there an app to remove system apps? I found “/system/app mover” but this one is from 2016 and for Android 2.1. I guess that it does not work on a current Android.

 adb shell pm list packages 
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.gms 

Replace com.google.android.gms with the package you want to uninstall.

  • With root, you can use p.e. App Manager. I don’t remember any alternatives currently, /system/app mover should work even if it is outdated.

Since you’re just uninstalling them for the current user, they will come back with a factory reset.
