    Has anyone here used this with success? I want to disable as much as possible while keeping the key features of the Note like:

    s pen
    power saving modes
    themes
    etc

    I have searched XDA and I can only find xmls that disable almost everything. I am not looking to make my Note 5 stock but remove the biggest offenders to battery life and performance.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I disabled the carrier crap and Samsung stuff I know I won't use then installed GSam and watched. Killed a few more.
    I feel it is safer this way (for me).

    Yup it works great. You just have to be careful with it and make sure you disable what you want and not everything that is claimed as bloat by the app. Pick and choose a few things then try it and see. That's what I do

    I made the xda XML files. All the features you mentioned work perfectly whichever XML file you use. I tried not to disable any features most people would want. And if there is anything you do want that is disable its pretty straightforward to re-enable again.

    They are at the bottom of the first post. Stick to the basic XML file if you want to play it super safe. I think both are very stable though.

    It was suggested in another thread that I use Package Disabler but correct me if I'm wrong, don't we achieve the exact same results disabling apps in Application Manager?

    Nothing is deleted. Only disabled so won't run. Completely reversible. And yes those can be disabled.

    Thanks for this. I know you are not tech support for this but my Android auto is acting weird and I can't find what to re-enable. Any ideas?

    MTP and Android Auto are enabled but there has to be some other service that is important.

    Thanks

    Hi giftedmd,
    Do you need to leave Package Disabler installed for the apps to remain disabled?
    Thanks

    I would leave it installed so you can re-enable them if you have to, for example to install a new software update when it comes.

    When it first came out, it came with the regular free version and the Pro one, I used the Free version to try it out and disabled some apps that couldn't do it with the Applications Manager, they were disabled, I checked that, then, I decided to uninstall the free version and I simply forgot to re-enable those apps I've disabled with it, as soon as I uninstalled Package Disabler all those apps were enabled and showing on the Applications manager.

    So to answer your question, yes, I think you need to keep it installed for the apps and services to keep being disabled.

    If it is a package then it can be disabled.

    In application manager I have already uninstalled or disabled several apps. Will this conflict with Package Disabler? I'm ready to try PD but just want to make sure everything goes smooth.
    Thanks to all for the help thus far
