Note: We’ll recommend you to disable the individual bloatware on your Xiaomi device first and then check whether the device is working properly or not. You shouldn’t jump into the uninstallation process straight away. Note down the specific bloatware package name from the list to a notepad before disabling or uninstalling it so that you can re-enable or reinstall it (if required).

DO NOT UNINSTALL: com.miui.securitycenter | com.miui.securityadd | com.xiaomi.finddevice (Don’t uninstall these three apps or services from your Xiaomi device. Otherwise, you may encounter device bricking or bootloop issues.)

How to Debloat Unwanted Apps from MIUI 12, 12.5

You can go with any of three methods to easily uninstall bloatware from your Xiaomi device that you don’t want to keep on the handset anymore or can’t be uninstalled normally. So, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into it.

Note: If your device is rooted, jump into method 3 for an easier and faster process.

1. Via ADB Shell Commands

  • First of all, enable USB Debugging on your Xiaomi phone.
  • Now, make sure to download the latest ADB & fastboot Tools (Platform Tools) on your computer.
  • Then extract the Platform Tools file and open the extracted folder.
  • Next, click on the address bar and type cmd then hit Enter. It’ll open Command Prompt.
  • Make sure to connect your Xiaomi device to the PC using a USB cable.
  • Once the device is connected, run the following command on the command prompt window:
adb devices
  • Make sure to authorize the USB Debugging prompt on your phone (if appears).
  • Now, if your device is properly connected in the adb mode, a device ID will appear on the command prompt. If not, just install the Xiaomi USB Driver on the PC and then try again.
  • Then execute the following command on the command prompt window:
adb shell
  • Now, make sure to execute the following command to uninstall specific bloatware. [Replace the <package name> in the command line with the actual app package name from the list above]
pm uninstall --user 0 <package name>
  • Make sure to uninstall the unnecessary app package one by one.
  • Once done, unplug the USB cable from the device, and restart the phone to apply changes.
  • You’re done.

2. Via Xiaomi ADB Fastboot Tool

  • Enable USB Debugging on your Xiaomi phone.
  • Now, download the XiaomiADBFastbootTools.jar file from Github.
  • Download the latest version of the Java Development Kit (JDK) and install it on your computer.
  • Launch the Xiaomi ADB Fastboot Tools on the computer by double-clicking on the XiaomiADBFastbootTools.jar file.
  • Then make sure to connect your handset to the PC via a USB cable.
  • Once connected, you’ll now see a list of Xiaomi bloatware.
  • Select the particular bloatware that you want to uninstall and click on Uninstall.
  • Make sure to confirm the task by clicking on ‘Yes’.
  • Once the bloatware is uninstalled, make sure to reboot your device.

Note: If in case, you’re facing any problem with the device’s stability or performance after removing bloatware, you can easily go to ‘Reinstaller’ and reinstall the removed bloatware via the Xiaomi ADB Fastboot Tools again. No issues with that.

3. Via Android Apps (Requires Root)

If you have a rooted Xiaomi device then there is no doubt that you’ll find out a couple of reliable rooted apps that can easily uninstall system apps or third-party bloatware from the phone. You can use any of them.
