Gérer les apps système Android

Cette page regroupe les différentes choses que j’ai recherchées et trouvées par rapport à la gestion des apps (paquets) système sur Android en général, et parfois spécifiquement au Samsung Galaxy S8. C’est principalement pour désactiver tout ce qui ne m’intéresse pas dans l’installation du constructeur, sans pour autant arriver jusqu’à avoir un téléphone non-fonctionnel.

Le tout se fait sans root, et sur la ROM officielle. Il faut néanmoins activer les options développeur et le débogage USB.

Lister les paquets systèmes

Voici de quoi lister tout les paquets système, installés ou non :

adb shell pm list packages -s -f -U -u
  • -s: afficher les paquets système (probablement seulement ceux désactivables et non désinstallables)
  • -f: afficher le nom du paquet associé (permet une identification plus facile de ce qu’il peut faire)
  • -U: afficher l’identifiant unique du paquet (UID)
  • -u: afficher les paquets désinstallés (pour l’utilisateur actuel)

Désinstaller un paquet système

La commande suivante désinstalle un paquet système (en l’occurrence Chrome), mais seulement pour l’utilisateur actuel (donc généralement, l’unique utilisateur). Attention, désactiver certains paquets vont rendre le téléphone inutilisable sans une restauration système complète.

adb shell "pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.chrome"
  • -k: demande de conserver les données de l’app ainsi que le cache. La commande de désinstallation ne fonctionne pas sans ça

Résinstaller un paquet système désinstallé

Les paquets système peuvent être désinstallés, mais le fichier d’installation est toujours présent dans le téléphone. Il est donc possible de le réinstaller (Chrome en l’occurrence) ainsi :

adb shell "cmd package install-existing com.android.chrome"

Le Galaxy S8

Il se trouve que j’ai un Galaxy S8, du coup voici quelques manipulations spécifiques que j’ai compilées.

Trouver les apps à désinstaller

Pour trouver quoi désactiver ou non, il faut faire sa liste avec un peu de jugeote. Parfois, certains noms de paquets sont totalement inconnus. Du coup, ce qui peut aider, c’est d’un côté des recherches en ligne, et de l’autre côté de regarder ce que ces applications contiennent et en particulier, les noms des activités. Pour cela, il est possible de le faire avec apps_Packages Info. Le nom du paquet et de l’app sont souvent différents (car l’un est un nom système, l’autre est destiné aux humains (plus ou moins)), du coup une recherche par UID peut aider.

Ma liste de désinstallation

À force de recherche, j’ai fini par documenter beaucoup de paquets en fonction de ce que j’ai trouvé dans les paquets et sur internet. Tout est en ligne dans un gist Github, ainsi qu’en pied de page1) pour backup.

Mise à jour système

Comme je n’ai que peu de confiance en Samsung (tout comme les autres), je désactive les paquets systèmes que je juge louches ou superflus. Et pour savoir si une mise à jour système apporte des modifications sur les paquets préinstallés, je suis donc le procédé suivant :

Avant la mise à jour

# Lister tous les paquets système installés
$ adb shell pm list packages -s -f -U | sort > before_installed.txt
 
# Lister tous les paquets système (même désinstallés)
$ adb shell pm list packages -s -f -U -u | sort > before_all.txt
 
# Quels sont les paquets qui ne sont pas communs aux deux listes
# En pratique, cela liste seulement les paquets désinstallés, même si la
# commande affiche quelle ligne est dans un fichier mais pas dans l'autre
$ comm -3 before_all.txt before_installed.txt > before_uninstalled.txt

Après la mise à jour

# Lister tous les paquets système installés
adb shell pm list packages -s -f -U | sort > after_installed.txt
 
# Lister tous les paquets système (même désinstallés)
adb shell pm list packages -s -f -U -u | sort > after_all.txt
 
# Quels sont les paquets qui ne sont pas communs aux deux listes
comm -3 after_all.txt after_installed.txt > after_uninstalled.txt
 
# Quels sont les nouveaux paquets systèmes installés après la mise à jour
comm -3 before_uninstalled.txt after_uninstalled.txt

Maintenant, j’ai la liste de tout ce qui a changé entre avant et après la mise à jour. Par exemple, j’ai le résultat suivant :

package:/data/app/com.samsung.android.mobileservice-z9zRZ2qzVIySSn7qZqvMyw==/base.apk=com.samsung.android.mobileservice uid:10071

Après vérification dans ma liste de désinstallation, c’est un paquet déjà connu qui a été réactivé, responsable de la gerstion du compte Samsung et de toutes les choses associées à l’Experience Samsung. Cool, ça vire à nouveau.

Réinitialiser la détection de visages

Parfois, la galerie photo s’y perd un peu dans les visages identifiés dans les photos, et une réinitialisation peut largement aider. Pour ce faire, il faut aller vider les données et le cache de deux paquets système : CMHprovider et Galerie.
