How to Remove Oppo System Apps without Root

When I checked the list of apps on my all-new Oppo Reno4 Pro, I was shocked to learn that it comes with 315 pre-installed apps out-of-the-box. I wanted to remove default apps like Hot Apps, Game Center, Oppo App Market in particular. If you want to get rid of Oppo system apps too, I’ve created a massive list of Oppo bloatware apps that are safe-to-remove. This tutorial will help you uninstall and disable default apps on Oppo smartphones without root using ADB commands without root.

All smartphones from popular Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi, Vivo, Realme, ZTE, Huawei, Honor, Oppo, etc. come with lots of pre-installed apps known as system apps. While many of the default system apps are essential to the proper functioning of the device, there are still many that are simply useless.

Such garbage apps are called bloatware and can be removed from the device without affecting its performance for a better experience, cleaner app drawer, and saving space, hardware resources, and battery. Moreover, some of the system and pre-installed system apps steal our data and may be a threat to our privacy.

Besides default apps from the OEM side, Oppo smartphones also come with a host of 3rd-party apps. Since most of such apps are installed as system apps, it’s not possible to disable or uninstall them via the app info page. Google Play Store has apps like System App Remover and Bloatware Remover that let you remove bloatware but your device must be rooted to do that. Thankfully, we can easily uninstall system apps on Oppo phones without root using ADB command-line tool.

If you have any of the phones listed below, the Oppo bloatware list will help you find out the safe to remove system apps and disable or uninstall them.

Oppo Bloatware List

In order to create a complete list of Oppo bloatware and system apps, I used 2 smartphones: Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Oppo Reno4 Pro and Oppo F17 Pro that has a Mediatek Helio chipset. I have mention Qualcomm and Mediatek bloat separately below.

In case you own another Android phone from some other manufacturer as well, you must check out the following tutorials to get rid of unwanted system apps.

No matter which Android smartphone or tablet you have, you can always create your own list of all system apps installed on it using the ADB shell commands.

  1. Set up ADB and Fastboot on your Windows PC or Mac computer.
  2. Enable USB debugging on your Android device.
  3. Launch the Command Prompt / Terminal window on your system.
  4. Type adb devices in the command window and hit the enter key. When you get your device ID listed, execute the adb shell command as shown below.
  5. Now, issue the following command and press the Enter key to get the package names of all system apps present in your device.
    pm list packages -s
oppo system apps list adb

Oppo bloatware list

You now have the complete list of Oppo system apps but how do you know which apps are safe to remove and which are not? Uninstalling a wrong app might either break some function or result in a boot loop. And, that’s why our list of app package names for the safe-to-remove bloatware on Oppo phones might come in handy.

Warning: Please note that if you remove default Oppo apps like the Gallery, File Manager, web browser, camera, home launcher, etc., you must install an alternative to those apps beforehand. In case you mistakenly disable or uninstall an essential system app, you can enable to re-install them later.

Uninstall Oppo System Apps using ADB

Now that you have the list of all safe-to-remove Oppo bloatware apps, let’s see how to uninstall them without root using ADB.

Note: If you are not sure about the system apps that are not safe to remove, you should use Universal Android Debloater GUI tool that lets you debloat your Oppo smartphone safely without using ADB commands.

  1. Download and install Android SDK Platform-tools on your PC. In case you got a Mac computer, you can use this tutorial to set up ADB on macOS. If you don’t have a laptop or computer but got another Android phone or tablet, you can use ADB commands on your phone to uninstall the system apps.
  2. In order that ADB can communicate with your Oppo phone, you must enable USB debugging via Developer options. Go to Settings > About phone, select Baseband & kernel and tap the Build number 7 times to unlock Developer options.oppo about phone
  3. Now, go back to the Settings page and select Additional settings > Developer options and turn on USB debugging.usb debugging oppo
  4. Go to the Display settings on your handset and increase the screen timeout to 10 minutes. It’s important because your phone won’t respond to ADB commands if the screen is off.
  5. Open the ‘platform-tools‘ folder and launch a Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell window.
    launch command window

    Type ‘cmd’ to launch the command prompt

    The easiest way to do that is to type “cmd” in the folder and press the Enter key. If you have set up system-wide ADB on your Windows PC, you can execute ADB and Fastboot commands from anywhere.

  6. Connect your phone to the PC using a USB cable and select the file transfer mode on your phone when prompted. To make sure that it has been properly connected, execute the following command.
    adb devices
  7. Keep an eye on your phone’s screen and tap on Allow when it asks you to Allow USB debugging.oppo allow usb debugging
  8. You’ll see your device ID printed under the List of devices attached in the command window.
  9. It means that ADB can recognize the connected phone and is ready to communicate with it. It’s time to envoke the ADB shell using the command given below.
    adb shell
  10. Well, you’re all set to uninstall system apps on your Oppo device. You can use one of the two commands followed by the app package name mentioned below as per your preference.
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (to uninstall app but keep app data)
    pm uninstall --user 0 (to delete app and its data both)
  11. For instance, if you want to remove the Game Center app from your Oppo device, use the above command as shown below.
    pm uninstall --user 0 com.coloros.gamespace

    uninstall system app in color os

    Uninstall default apps in Oppo

As you can see in the screenshot, I removed Oppo system apps like Game Center, HeyTap Cloud, and ORoaming one after another. You’ll get a “Success” message after each successful uninstallation. You can keep uninstalling as many apps as you want.

Restore Uninstalled System Apps

In case you uninstall an Oppo system app by mistake, don’t worry. You can re-install it using the following command.

cmd package install-existing com.oppo.usercenter

App Uninstallation Failed Errors

While uninstalling Oppo apps using the ADB command, you might get the following errors.

  • Failure [not installed for 0]: It means that the app package you are trying to remove is not installed on your phone.
  • Failure [delete_failed_internal_error]: You’ll get this error on your Oppo device if the OEM has disabled the uninstallation of a system app and so you can’t uninstall it.

How to Disable Apps in Oppo

If you don’t want to uninstall default apps on your Oppo phone, you can simply disable them using another ADB command. For instance, if you want to disable the Kid Space app, use the following command.

adb shell 
pm disable-user --user 0 com.coloros.childrenspace

I have written another detailed tutorial that you should check out to learn how you can freeze, disable, and enable Android apps using ADB commands.

  1. Thank you Rakesh for good concise and very informative article, gathering in one place all bloats related to Oppo. This is what I was looking for! Being an Oppo device owner I need to have this accurate list of bloatware as a reference. Thanks again!

  2. This was very informative. I think I’ve done one thing wrong:

    After removing most of the bloatware, but leaving Gmail – I cannot use my account to read emails, even on other clients on my Find X2 Lite.

    Out of this list, is there something I should have perhaps left alone?


    1. I mean they are safe to remove but might cause minor issues on some phone models. It’s better to disable them than uninstalling them completely.

  3. Ok This is great to know. But I have a questions about a challenge I am having. I’m a keen cyclist and want to use my Oppo A52 as a cycling computer but it doesn’t have native Ant+ installed. I downloaded appropriate App from Playstore and it worked for about 12 months but now it doesn’t. I’ve called Oppo support but they can’t help. Is there any way I can I can get Ant+ to work again by making it a native app?

  4. I am finding the android SDK does not discover my Oppo phone.

    I have USB debugging enabled and the correct “Path” set in System/Advanced/Environment Variables.

    I am running the SDK executables at an “Administrator”.

    And yet my Oppo A53 phone is not discovered by the android SDK.

  5. I am finding that my Oppo A53 phone is not recognised by the Android SDK.

    I am running the SDK executables as an Administrator.
    I have USB Debugging enabled.
    I have the correct path set in System/Advanced/Environment Variables

    And yet the Android SDK will not recognise my phone?

  6. Be careful to go through the article cause after deleting some apps in my oppo reno 4 pro I was not able to boot up the screen was flashing (crashes)…..I could not reboot, so I have to use some ADB commands to reboot and hard to reset to get my things working.

  7. Is it safe to remove stock Oppo browser (package name and messages app (package name as I have already set default of chrome and Google messages so I think this should not cause a problem? Could you confirm TY. As these have Android in package name and not coloros I am a little cautious.

  8. Thanks Rakesh this is great!

    If I remove all the oppo and hey tap applications, will this turn my phone (Oppo Find X2 Pro) into a vanilla android just like the Pixel phones? Is there anything else I can remove, like the Oppo launcher and UI and replace it with the stock android one?

    1. Hi Charles, I won’t recommend deleting all Heytap apps blindly as doing so might cause bootloop or some other issues. However, you can delete the safe-to-remove apps and then install the alternatives to the stock apps to get the stock Vanilla feel.

  9. Doesn’t actually remove bloatware apps, just removes them from the screen (hide from screen), this is not much different from the “force quit” method of app management

    1. Due to Android restrictions, system applications cannot be permanently deleted and their apk files will remain on the system. There is no way to remove them without root privileges.

  10. Hlo sir I have oppo f1 plus and I want to remove oppo apps but u didn’t add this version can I remove such apps.

  11. I want to uninstall phone manager in my Oppo device what is the effect after uninstalling phone manager in my Oppo device

  12. Hi Rakesh,

    My Oppo F11 Pro got stuck on the lock screen. The screen would just flicker on and off the lock screen when I restarted after removing the bloatwares. I have know way of typing the screen lock password. What should I do?
