Greetings MIUIers,
I hope you all are doing great! Today I am going to share a tutorial regarding how to disable any package installed on your android phone completely without root permissions. This will make sure the app is not running in memory but in any way is not going to clear up space by removing it completely.

Before beginning, I would like to inform you that you can anytime get back the disabled apps by a factory reset and it might not break OTA updates for your device. So now let's begin...

1. Install the USB drivers for your device  (universal USB drivers)
2. Download the ADB binary for your particular OS (Windows, Mac, Linux)
3. Extract the zip file.
4. On your phone, go to Settings and tap on About Phone. Tap on MIUI version 7 times to enable Developer Options.
5. Now enter Developer Options and find USB Debugging. Enable it.

6. Plug your phone into the computer and from the notification panel change from “charge only” mode to “file transfer (MTP)” mode.
7. On your computer, open the folder where you extracted the ADB binary.
8. Open Command Prompt/ Power Shell in your ADB folder. On Windows, this can be done by holding Shift and Right-clicking then selecting the  “Open command prompt here/ Open PowerShell here” option.
9. In the prompt/ shell, enter the following command: adb devices
10. You will see that the system is starting the ADB daemon. If you will see a prompt on your phone asking 'Allow USB debugging' then press OK.

11. Now it  should show you like this when you type adb devices

12. Enter the following command:
adb shell
13. Install an app called App Inspector on your phone. This will let you know the exact package name.

14. Execute this command: “pm uninstall -k --user 0 <name of package>” command (without quotes) to disable a specific system application. For example, I have taken the Wallpaper Carousel app. Press Enter and this will disable that application.

Disclaimer: This is a tried and tested tutorial but I am not going to take responsibility for your bricked devices. Disabling apps can be dangerous unless you know what you are disabling. Of course, by removing any given system application, another system application that may depend on it may also break so be careful what you remove. But if something does go wrong, you can always perform a factory reset to bring things back to the way they were.
