Android is an open source operating system that can be optimized at any time. Therefore, you must become an experienced user and know some special operations, such as the process that will be described in this manual: remove viruses from Galaxy-branded devices. Yes, that’s right, now you can easily get rid of bothersome built-in applications and proprietary programs that use a special script. In any case, read this guide if you are interested in doing this operation on Android.
As we all know, all smartphones and tablets with Android have pre-installed several built-in applications, features and programs that can not be deleted, of course, if you have a Nexus phone, then you do not have to deal with these annoying pre-loaded applications. All these applications slow down the operation of the Android device, especially if we talk about middle class phones. Therefore, the best way is to find out how to remove viruses easily and safely (pre-installed applications) to eliminate the amount of RAM and storage, and speed up the operation of our smartphones and tablets.
So, if you have a Galaxy device, including the latest models, like the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, we have something really interesting for you. Blaz1nfor of xda-developers managed to develop a script installed with the help of the user’s recovery, which handles the pre-loaded applications and the integrated tools. With this .zip file, you can easily and safely remove viruses from smartphones or a Galaxy tablet.
The script removes only unnecessary applications to increase the speed of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone / tablet. However, you must first check the list of applications that will be removed (we’ll explain how to do it below) to make sure all your favorite tools remain on the device, also tell you how to change the list of applications to be removed, so study this step by step guide.
If interesting, the script does not delete system processes and applications, so you do not risk damaging the device’s software by removing bloatware from the android operating system. In addition, root access is not required, although a custom recovery image must be installed on your phone or tablet – as already mentioned, the script is a ZIP file that can be installed only in custom recovery, for example, in CWM or TWRP.
In any case, in order to avoid unpleasant situations (for example, you forgot to change the list of bloatware applications that will be deleted) you must make backup copies of all applications running android on your device. In order to do this, you must use the Nandroid custom recovery image . In addition, you can also use the application to backup and restore from the Play Store, cloud storage, a computer or even an SD card.
The best thing about this is that you can use the script to reduce the amount of memory used by the Android device to 400 MB. In addition, it can significantly increase the speed of the Samsung Galaxy device by eliminating viruses and also reduce the loading / restart time by 50%. So, are you ready to increase the speed on your Android device? We know we do, so let’s see what we have to do before installing the .zip file in recovery mode.
As already mentioned, the script will remove pre-installed applications and other Samsung tools. It is important to make sure you are eliminating only those applications that you do not need. To do this, first save the script to the computer. Next, unzip the file into a separate folder (anywhere) and find the update script file. In this file, you can remove recursive commands for applications that will be removed from the Galaxy device.
Therefore, if you want a certain application not to be deleted, just add # to the beginning of the line, as in the following example: the Gmail application will be deleted by default; among the recursive commands for deletion, you will find here the command associated with Gmail:
delete_recursive ("/ system / app / Gmail2");
In order not to delete the Gmail client, change the specified command to:
#delete_recursive ("/ system / app / Gmail2");
Do not forget to save the changes at the end, and before installing the script on the android device.
Excellent; Now you know how to access the list of all applications and bloatware that will be removed by default from the Samsung Galaxy device.You also know how to change this list and how to avoid unpleasant situations by creating a backup. So, basically, you can start the uninstall process – just follow the instructions below.
