My Oneplus 5T has been randomly freezing for a few months now. I have tried reinstalling it and tried to downgrade it from lineage 17.1 to the stock rom. Nothing helped. I’ve been looking for a new phone for the past few months and have tested several phones. I eventually bought the pixel 4a. This is, in my opinion, the best phone on the market right now. It is easy to unlock, and there are many ROMs available for it.
After I received the phone, I installed GrapheneOS. GrapheneOS is a great rom, it works out of the box without any bugs. But after a few dag of using Graphene, I was getting frustrated because I couldn’t manage to get the GPS working (like any other service, the GPS uses Google services to work and Graphene doesn’t come with any Google services.).
I decided to switch back to stock-android. I really like stock-android but I really hate the Google spyware. So after tweaking all the privacy settings and installing FOSS applications like f-droid, I tried to remove the Google services and applications that I dont use.
I used ADB to uninstall the spyware from the default user profile. This is the command I used:
adb shell pm uninstall -k –user 0 NAME_OF_APPLICATION
Here is a list of applications I managed to uninstall:
bookmark provider com.android.bookmarkprovider Device Personalization Services com.google.android.as Google Partner Setup com.google.android.partnersetup Google Market Feedback Agent com.google.android.feedback Google Carrier App Logging com.google.android.apps.carrier.log Google Connectivity Metrics com.android.connectivity.metrics Partner Bookmarks com.android.providers.partnerbookmarks Google Wearables Companion com.google.android.apps.wearables.maestro.companion Tethering (Un)Entitlement com.google.android.tetheringentitlement Verizon - Specific Stuff com.verizon.mips.services com.customermobile.preload.vzw com.verizon.llkagent com.verizon.obdm_permissions com.android.vzwomatrigger com.customermobile.preload.vzw Chrome com.android.chrome Stock Youtube App com.google.android.youtube First Run Setup Wizard com.google.android.setupwizard Digital Wellbeing (battery drain) com.google.android.apps.wellbeing GMail com.google.android.gm Google Docs com.google.android.apps.docs Youtube Music com.google.android.apps.youtube.music Google Play Movies & TV com.google.android.videos Google Safety App com.google.android.apps.safetyhub Google search App com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox

(With this command you can uninstall the stock Youtube app.)
