My Realme X2 (Android 11) phone, being a little old, when I press the power button, it gets pressed multiple times. I know this is a hardware issue, but I'd still like to get rid of emergency calls.

The disable app option is disabled and removing permissions does nothing.

Is there any way I can do it with ADB? I'm not planning on rooting this one yet.

  • I didn't find a solution, but things got annoying, so I rooted and reverted to Android 10. Victory is mine! :)

I'm looking for a better solution for this myself, for now, the best I could do (on Android 13) was change the number it calls. For me, emergency # is 911, so I changed this to just "0". So even if it triggers accidentally, at least it doesn't call an actual "911" number.

  • You can remap the power button only after rooting or even just delete the emergency SOS app. Apart from these, I don't see a way out.

  • I found an alternative solution using ADB from Reddit. Could you try it and let me know if it works?

For Realme devices, according to multiple Reddit users on r/Realme - Emergency SOS, the Emergency SOS app can be disabled by using ADB without the need for rooting:

adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 com.oppo.sos
adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 com.oplus.sos

(the package name should be either one of them depending on the device model)

  • I'm willing to, but you'll have to bring the instructions down a few steps .. what's adb? where I get that? how to run this command line on phone/app ??

  • @Ditto It is an interface to communicate with your device. Android Debugging Bridge. Watch any video out there, you will get it. BTW Andrew, you wrote pm uninstall instead of pm disable. People have been trying to do what your typo suggests for ages haha

  • @44yu5h I usually hear about pm uninstall instead of pm disable, as also mentioned in How to uninstall a system app using adb uninstall command (NOT remove via rm or any other way)

    Hi, AFAIK the -k flag is only for retaining the data, and the end result is not different than this (my) answer.
