Thank you for the instructions, I managed to follow through your guide step by step. Most of the intented bloatwares in my Fire 8 have appeared “success”. However, when I restart my Fire 8, the annoying apps still remains on the main screen. I tried to uninstall them again on CMD screen, the system responded “failure” as it seems “already uninstalled”!
I don’t know what to do next. Please advise. Thanks
Some of the commands did work, most didn’t. Those that did work, the apps were still there even on reboot. Fire 10HD
This article is garbage. Not only does this not work, you do not even begin to list all of the bloatware on the tablet. There are a whole lot more app installed that should not be on the tablet.
Every line command fails. This is a complete waste of time!
