Universal Android Debloater GUI

DISCLAIMER: Use at your own risk. I am not responsible for anything that could happen to your phone.


This software is still in an early stage of development. Check out the issues, and feel free to contribute!


This is a complete rewrite in Rust of the UAD project, which aims to improve privacy and battery performance by removing unnecessary and obscure system apps. This can also contribute to improve security by reducing the attack surface.

Packages are as well documented as possible in order to provide a better understanding of what you can delete or not. The worst issue that could happen is removing an essential system package needed during boot causing then an unfortunate bootloop. After about 5 failed system boots, the phone will automatically reboot in recovery mode, and you'll have to perform a FACTORY RESET. Make a backup first!

In any case, you CANNOT brick your device with this software! That's the main point, right?


  • Uninstall/Disable and Restore/Enable system packages
  • Multi-user support (e.g. apps in work profiles)
  • Export/Import your selection in uad_exported_selection.txt
  • Multi-device support: you can connect multiple phones at the same time
  • All your actions are logged, so you never forget what you've done

NB : System apps cannot truly be uninstalled without root (see the FAQ)

How to use it

  • Read the FAQ!

  • Do a proper backup of your data! You can never be too careful!

  • Enable Developer Options on your smartphone.

  • Turn on USB Debugging from the developer panel.

  • From the settings, disconnect from any OEM accounts (when you delete an OEM account package it could lock you on the lockscreen because the phone can't associate your identity anymore)

  • Install ADB (see the intructions by clicking on your OS below):

    • Install Android platform tools on your PC :

    Debian Base:

    sudo apt install android-sdk-platform-tools

    Arch-Linux Base:

    sudo pacman -S android-tools

    Red Hat Base:

    sudo yum install android-tools

    OpenSUSE Base:

    sudo zypper install android-tools

    MAC OS
    • Install Homebrew

    • Install Android platform tools

      brew install android-platform-tools


  • Download the latest release of UAD GUI for your Operating System here. Take the opengl version only if the default version (with a Vulkan backend) doesn't launch.

  • NOTE: Chinese phones users may need to use the AOSP list for removing some stock apps because those Chinese manufacturers (especially Xiaomi and Huawei) have been using the name of AOSP packages for their own (modified & closed-source) apps.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You will have to run this software whenever your OEM pushes an update to your phone as some uninstalled system apps could be reinstalled.
