Xiaomi ADB/Fastboot Tools is a Java-based multi-purpose and a must-have utility for the users of Xiaomi and Redmi devices. It runs in the ADB and Fastboot modes. In the ADB mode, it can enable, disable, uninstall, and re-install multiple system apps on MIUI 10, 11, and 12.

As soon as you switch to the Fastboot mode, Xiaomi ADB/Fastboot Tools reveals its true power. It can download and install stock firmware on Xiaomi devices, wipe device data, enable OEM unlocking, and flash factory images. Moreover, it can also reboot your phone into the Fastboot, Recovery, and EDL (emergency download) modes. The only missing thing is the option to reboot Xiaomi devices into the Safe Mode.

Anyway, let’s see how we can safely remove bloatware on Xiaomi devices running MIUI ROM.

  2. Make sure you have the latest version of the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) installed on your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer.
