Remove LG G4 Bloatware Apps without Root Access

I have already showed you a simple method on how to disable LG G4 preinstalled apps, but you know that it cannot be applied to all of the in built tools and features. If you are determined to disable all the bloatware applications that comes preinstalled with your device, then I have another guide for you that can do that.

Disabling theLG G4 bloatware means that all those applications will no longer be visible in your app drawer and even better, the app drawer will definitely look less cluttered than before. If removed, the bloatware apps won’t eat up any extra RAM or processor power any longer and will stop draining the juice of your battery.

So, if you are also worried about the fact that those apps running in the background affect the battery usage, this guide on how to get rid of LG G4 bloatware apps with the help of the Debloater app is ideal. However, be sure of the fact that this is what you want as long as not all the bloatware apps can lead to resource issues and there are some that you might find as being really useful.

If you are though one hundred percent sure, there are some preparations that you should have in mind: first of all, make sure that you have at least 60% battery charge or the procedure could end abruptly. You must also enable USB-Debugging from Developer Options in the Settings menu of your LG G4. If you cannot find Developer Options, enable it by entering into Settings> About Phone> Build Number and tap it no less than 7 times until you see a small notification that you have enabled it. After that, go back to the Settings menu, now you will find Developer Options, so tap on this option and enable USB Debugging.

Prepare your laptop and make sure you have adb and fastboot installed on your PC, along with the proper USB drivers for your LG G4 Android phone. No root access is required, but this doesn’t have to mean that the operation is risk free. There are chances to brick your LG G4 phone if you do not perform the steps correctly and I cannot be held responsible if this happens. Your warranty might also get void, so use this tutorial on how to restore it.

      you should look over the usb connection from the drop down menu.
      if it’s on mtp it won’t work.
      make sure it’s on ptp and the computer will ask you for a confirmation.
      then it will recognize your phone, took me awhile to figure it out myself
