Get Rid of Bloatware on the Nexus 5 with Ease

It goes without saying that the  is one popular device here on at XDA. And given the specs and price point, there’s little reason to doubt why. It’s got some top notch internals, a good build quality, and it is very welcoming to open-source and community development. What the Nexus 5 isn’t exempt from, however, is the great number of bloatware apps that parasitically come alongside the device. A quick and clean fix to purge your device of these unwanted apps comes in simple script form, and XDA Senior Member MoJo has written one for the popular Nexus 5.

As of right now, the script removes 24 bloatware apps, but MoJo does explain further into the thread just how exactly one can customize the script by adding and removing apps if one chooses to do so. Also, if there’s an app listed in the script that’s not actually installed on your device, the script will just skip the app with no consequences.

Two zip files are provided in the forum post: one is intended to work with the Nexus 5, while the second package should work with any device with a custom recovery. To run the script, just simply flash the zip file through a custom recovery such as CWM or TWRP.

So if you’re sick of the bloatware on your Nexus 5, visit the original thread for more information and download.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
