We all know that OnePlus’s Oxygen OS is one of the cleanest and the closest to the stock OS we can get on an Android Smartphone. There is very minimal bloatware installed on the OnePlus device, and some find that useful too. But, if you want a cleaner and almost-stock OS, this guide will help you with how to remove bloatware on OnePlus 7 Pro using Tomato Debloater Script.
The add-on apps can be installed again from the Play Store. Hence, it is not such a worry to uninstall them. The debloat script is helpful for removing the invisible apps to reduce RAM usage. This helps the device to perform faster with an excess of RAM. Moreover, the unused bloatware helps you o reduce the background activities and thus, saving battery as well.
This debloat script is from an Xda developer named Tomatot. Moreover, he has developed not one but three debloat scripts for the OnePlus 7 Pro. He divided the debloat scripts into three categories; invisible script, light script, and extreme script. Let us understand each of them one by one;
The invisible script removes those apps that are related to telemetry or those that do not affect the OS in the functioning script. It is like disabling the apps manually that will retain the apps but only will disable them from further RAM or memory usage of the device. As the name suggests, it disables the invisible apps that you never knew existed on your OnePlus 7 Pro.
The light scripts remove apps that have better alternatives available to download. Moreover, the apps removed by this script basically are the useless apps that you won’t even bother to use or you use a better alternative to that app. In this case, it is better to uninstall those useless apps and free some of your RAM and memory.
This script as the name itself, removes almost every third-party apps, including a few Google Apps as well, that is installed on the device. You can install them again from the Play Store. Besides, it gives you the total stock experience you wished to have on your OnePlus device. It also removes some apps like Google Maps, etc which you might use daily. So, if you want a total clean-up OS, then only you should use this script.
