For this tutorial you will need a Xiaomi mobile phone and a Windows, Mac or Linux computer. The process is very simple and in a few seconds your Xiaomi will be ready to save battery, minimize MIUI issues and free up a good chunk of internal memory.
Sweep away all MIUI trash with Xiaomi ADB / Fastboot Tools
Xiaomi ADB / Fastboot Tools is a tool that you can download from the GitHub of Szaki, the developer who created it. It is a very simple tool that takes advantage of ADB privileges to scan a large part of the services and applications supplied with your Xiaomi from the map. When using the tool, you will find that the bloatware is very high.
The first step we need to do is download Oracle Java for Windows, macOS, or Linux, depending on your operating system. This is an essential step since the tool is developed in Kotlin with the Java virtual machine, so Oracle Java is required when opening the tool .jar file.
Once the Java is downloaded and installed, we download the tool, a .jar executable file that installs in a few clicks. Ready, we just have to open the tool and connect our Xiaomi in debug mode. If you don’t know how, here are the steps.
- Open your Xiaomi settings
- Go to “On the phone”
- Press the “ MIUI version ” 7 times
- Now go to the “ additional settings ”, where will be the developer options
- Enable USB debugging
When you connect the Xiaomi to the PC, it will ask you to give permission to trust the computer, which is necessary for the ADB to work through USB debugging. Once logged in, All applications on your Xiaomi will appear
You can delete apps without fear, as not all selectable apps in the tool are required for the phone to work.
Anything that appears in the tool can be erased with no problem, including Google apps that you can’t use. In the event that we have accidentally deleted something, we have the option of reinstalling it with the tool. We can also disable apps instead of deleting them. The changes take effect immediately, so you don’t need to restart your phone or do anything else.
