If you are Xiaomi user than you must be aware of bloatware weight that the company adds in every Xiaomi phone launches in the market. And that’s all nothing worth to use in your daily life. So, it is annoying to see them every day on the home screen every time when you scroll, right?

What is Bloatware?

Unwanted applications included on your new smartphone by the manufacturer which are supposed to be used by the user to make stuff easy but people hates them. So, they called ‘Bloatware’.

Well, in the case of Xiaomi devices, you might have seen bloatware like Email, FM Radio, Mi Cloud, Feedback app, Mi Payment, Scanner, Compass, Mi Account, Recycle, File Explorer (if you don’t like), etc. The list still goes on.

You cannot uninstall the system default applications from your device without root!? No just kidding, now, you can remove all those bloatware from your smartphone without rooting your device. That means your device will still remain under warranty. It is super simple. You might think there are so many steps to follow. But I tried to make it understandable with more steps. So, let’s dig into the detailed information.

01. Unable Developer Option

To enable developer options, go to Settings -> About phone. Now tap seven times on MIUI Version to enable Developer options. Once you will tap, you will get a message says ‘You are now a developer!’.

02. Turn on USB Debugging

To do so, go to Settings -> Additional Settings -> Developer Options -> Turn on the toggle next to the USB Debugging. 

It will show a small dialogue box might say this option is only for development purposes. But, it’s okay. Tap on ‘Ok’ to proceed further.

03. Turn on Other Following Options

After turning on USB Debugging, you have to enable some other options as well. Turn on the following options except ‘Revoke USB debugging authorizations’;

  • Install via USB
  • USB Debugging [Security Settings]

04. Get onto the PC

Now, you will need to download platform-tools to follow up on the next steps. I have attached the link below.

Download Platform-tools

Once downloaded, extract the ZIP file and paste it in C-drive of your computer in a new folder and name that folder as ‘adb’.

05. Apply Commands

Now, connect your Android device to your computer using a USB cable. Once connected, you have to give some commands as I have written below through command prompt (cmd). You can take help of my screenshot attached below.

cd..
cd..
cd adb
adb devices

Once you will give all of these commands, you should get a dialogue box on your smartphone screen as I have attached in the screenshot below. Simply click on ‘Ok‘.

Now, again give the following command. When you will press enter, on a second you will get your find your device connected. If you get your device connected, then you are good to go for the next step. If you don’t get, maybe you should check into developer options, if there is any setting turned off.
