There is nothing more frustrating than buying a 32GB phone just to realize that only 16GB of your storage on that phone is actually usable. What takes up all that space. The actual operating system normally takes up a few GBs of the overall storage space, but other than that the big storage grabber is all that carrier bloatware that is normally included on your phone. There is a simple and easy way to get rid of these mostly useless apps.
GatesJunior has developed a full debloater tool. To use this you will need a Windows PC, USB debugging enabled on your device, and your device needs to be rooted and running Kit Kat or above.
What does it do?:
• Block / Disable applications on your device
• UnBlock / Enable applications on your device
• Allow UnBlock / Enable all applications at once on your device
• Allows filtering of the displayed packages for quicker decision making
• Allows exporting your blocked / unblocked listing to a file (Right click on Read Device Packages after list is loaded)
• Allows importing your blocked, or someone else's, listing (Right click on Read Device Packages after list is loaded)
