I’m currently debloating the Fairphone. They did a pretty good job keeping it clean without any ad-apps like Samsung. I just had some provider apps which annoy peope to install more provider apps when inserting their SIM-cards, but that’s not a fault of Fairphone.
There are two apps from fairphone. com.fairphone.myfairphone, which I can bind to the app testing the modules and assisting the user on which module is faulty.
But there’s another I can’t bind to user functions:
What does com.fairphone.activator do exactly?
From the name it suggests being an app to notify Fairphone about a new device active somewhere, so it should be uninstalled with a debloat. But before I really want to make sure that it doesn’t disables any user functions.
It reads Fairphone Activation Logger as an UI name…
So I can only attach that to something like warranty checks or statistics for the Fairphone Company itself.
My current FP5 debloat list:
com.android.egg (Android EasterEgg when tapping the version number in settings)
I got it from my provider like two days before the release date and since then I’ll rather let the TWRP guys take some time to get a stable recovery ready and I’m waiting for comprehensive rooting tutorials to do it.
I’m kinda thinking back to the Nexus 4 times where rooting was just a factory reset and like two command line commands.
