Howto remove Default apps?



9 Xiaomi devices and 1 Asus device. It was hard to find with DuckDuckGo.
But I’ll stay with /e/

Maybe I’ll try this when installing v0.2


you can download the SU zip for lineageOs(boot into recovery and install) and enable root for aps(in developer option-menu i settings). Then download titanium backup and try to remove system apps.
(searx how to enable developer option if you dont know how)


How can Sailfish be full of google? Its am whole different OS which is meant to not use google?!


While building Sailfish OS I saw a lot of “google” rolling over the terminal, so I aborted the build. Possibly they have the Google search engine default in browser?


The problem with /e/ is pre-installing apps as system apps.You can pre-install them as normal or user apps so that the user can able to remove them.I don’t think it is necessary to make signal,telegram,weather,notes,magic, etc., as system apps.
@pjmbraet here is what i did without root to remove unwanted system apps in /e/ in moto g4 titan.
In a linux terminal
~]$ adb shell
titan_umtsds:/ $ pm list packages
$ pm uninstall -k --user 0 nameofpackage
Here is what i did with other custom roms:
root with magisk
install systemappmover and busybox from F-Droid
move system app to user app
uninstall that app
