After updating my Samsung phone to Android 12 I wanted to remove the Android 11 easter egg, but since I have Android 12 now I can't do it. Does anyone know how to fix this (apart from factory reset)?
Find out the package name for the easter egg (which will be something like "com.android.egg") using something like this:App Inspector. Then you can proceed to uninstall the app follwing this guide,connecting the phone to a PC through adb(Android Debug bridge) and using the command:
"adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 ".
Though in case of system apps it is pretty much just disabling it: they will be back on a factory reset or you can even choose to reinstall it using the "abd shell cmd package install-existing "** command.
You can use this method to remove any useless system apps which can't be uninstalled from inside the phone's menu.
*install adb from here. **replace <package name> with the appropriate pacakge name.
