    I'm in the middle of setting up after wipe, my K1black to a pure android set with all bb apps and functions taken off or disabled, and it's hard than I thought.

    How do I proceed, for one, I cannot Force Stop the BB Launcher, all in all, it all has to go, all BB apps.

    If the apps can't be disabled in settings, then to remove them you'd have to root the phone. I don't have a Blackberry but I haven't seen anything about being able to root them.

    You can switch launchers. Nova comes installed. Then with the apps you have to deactivate first then uninstall make sure you uninstall the blackberry hub + services app and not just the BlackBerry hub.

    I was able to, Force Stop, BB hub + services, I went through Apps and deleted if possible, if not then Force Stop. Except cannot stop dtek. I did download Google Launcher. Don't know if there's a quicker way but so far it seems to be working, Also downloaded Google contacts, and calendar and others to replace bb's.

    Why the hell do you own a BB if you want to remove all the BB-ness?

    It's like the other guy who bought a Pixel and complains why he has to save contacts to Google.

    To OP:

    The only way to remove all the BB stuff is to root and install a custom ROM. Some BB stuff may be irremovable or disable is blocked because they are part of the firmware.

    The best option for you is to sell the thing and buy something else.
