I have a Samsung Galaxy on7, running on Android 6.0.1.
It has a lot of pre installed apps that I consider bloatware. I want to remove them completely from the phone.
Recently, I tried removing these apps as per this video:
But soon I found that it does not delete the system files, because that is not possible without root.
I also found that I can root my phone using adb. The procedure (on a different phone, though) is here:
After rooting and installing magisk, I want to delete the system files from adb using the following command (say, to remove google photos):
adb shell rm -f /system/app/Photos/Photos.apk
adb shell rm -f /data/user/0/com.Google.android.apps.photos
Two questions on this:
Is this possible to be done on my device? Any precautions?
Is there any way to backup the system files before deleting it?
