RealMe and Oppo phones are one of the most popular Android phones in the market. But they come with a lot of pre-installed (mostly useless) apps. This bloatware occupies unnecessary space in your phone and can’t be deleted. In this blog, we tell you how you can remove such bloatware from your RealMe phones with a FREE one-click tool. We will also tell you how to reinstall a system app if you accidentally delete it.
So, here’s how to uninstall your system apps without root access.
Step 1: Developer mode
Go to Settings > About phone > Version. Click repeatedly (7-8 times) on “Build number”.
You will get into the Developer mode of your phone. You should see a notification at the bottom mentioning that.
Step 2: Additional settings
Go back to Settings > Additional Settings > Developer options. Have “Developer options” toggle at ON.
Ensure “USB debugging” toggle is set to ON.
Keep “Disable permission monitoring” as ON.
Step 3: Download the tool on PC
Connect your original data cable to the PC. Make sure you use the original data cable that you got with the box.
Go to PC and download the Zip file ColorOS Debloatware tool from this link.
Step 4: Install a tool on PC
Extract the Zip file.
Go to the extracted folder and double-click the .exe file called adb-setup to install the tool.
Type “Y” and press Enter when question prompts come on screen.
This would install the adb-driver on your PC.
Step 5: Phone Debugging
Open the command prompt on your PC. Type “adb devices” and press Enter.
This would bring a pop-up on your RealMe mobile “Allow USB debugging?”.
Check the box to always allow and press Allow.
Step 6: Back to PC
Go back to your PC and close the command prompt. Click on the second file inside the extracted Zip folder – ColorOS debloat.bat.
A command prompt will open. Press Enter. You will see three options as seen below on your PC screen.
Press 1, if you want to remove RealMe UI applications.
Press 2, if you want to remove default Google applications like Gmail, YouTube and others.

Step 7-a: Removing RealMe System apps
Choose option 1 after running the ColorOS debloat.bat file on your PC and press Enter. You will see the list of RealMe UI apps on your screen. Choose the ones you want to uninstall.
For example, say you want to remove the Theme Store app from your RealMe phone.
The option for that in my list is 11. So, I would type 11 and press Enter.
You will now see a prompt to confirm the delete. Type 1 and press Enter.
And voila! The Theme Store app is deleted. You can search for the app on your phone to confirm the delete and you would not see it.
Let’s take another example. Netflix is another default app on my RealMe phone. I check the list and see Netflix on option 8. Next, type 8 and press Enter. Then, type 1 and press Enter to confirm the delete.
And boom! Netflix app is deleted from your phone.
This way you can uninstall your system apps without root access.
Step 7-b: Removing Google apps from your RealMe phone
Now let’s see how to delete Google apps from your phone. Go to PC and the command prompt opened by our .bat file. Press 0 in the command prompt to go back to Main Menu.
Press 2 and Enter. This would show you the list of all Google apps on your phone.
Let’s try to remove Chrome from my phone. As you can see below, Chrome is no. 10 on my list. I type 10 and press Enter. I again press 1 and Enter to confirm the delete.
That’s it. Chrome is deleted!
Step 7-c: Recovering uninstalled apps
To recover an uninstalled app, go back to the Main Menu in our tool. (Press 0 and Enter)
Type 3 and Enter to go to “Backup – uninstalled apps”. You will see the list of apps that you previously uninstalled.
For example, let’s recover the Theme Store app we previously uninstalled. As you can see, Theme Store is no. 11 on my list. So, type 11 and press Enter. Then press 1 and Enter to confirm the choice.
And the Theme Store app is installed back on the phone. This is how you recover any of the deleted bloatware on your phone.
