    Reason to do it : debloat ( less crappy apps) / more free ram / slightly increase of battery life

    WARNING: This removes some functionality that may be useful to some users.
    Do a full backup before starting to remove apps !!!

    My device: Redmi 3s 2/16 Gb with fingerprint reader

    What you need:

    Hmm interesting..... I'm new to Xiaomi so how does this work?
    Do I install Lucky patcher on the phone or PC?
    Do you need to install the modded playstore as well?

    I want to get rid of the videoplayer and galery (among others). Is galery safe to remove?

    (I am on the latest EU ROM)

    1.you have to install Lucky patcher on your phone ( of cours your device hase to be rooted to be able to delete some sytem apps )
    2.you have to be 100% soure what you want to delete ( if you delete something else accidentally then you are screwed ,you have to flash your rom again )
    3.i sougest you not to mess with playstore !
    4.video player MiuiVideo.apk ( replaced with MX player pro )
    gallery MiuiGallery.apk ( replaced with Galery2 from CM 13 rom)
    5.yes they are safe to remove look at the list

    I sougest you to mess with system apps only if you finded ,and using the best rom for your needs !
    This is a short story of how to you need to read more ,and watch more youtube :) !

    Well I deleted 20 apk's, sofar without causing problems.

    It's a little difficult because the 3S's native language isn't english. But when you open the apk in Lucky Patcher, you can see the original english name.
