Update 10/26/2016: still compatible with all the latest MIUI Roms and Smoke. It should also work in custom roms for the Mi Pad, but use at your own risk.  Make a full backup before you try.  

Hello fellow MIPad owners!
bloat·ware
ˈblōtˌwer/
noun COMPUTING

software whose usefulness is reduced because of the excessive disk space and memory it requires.
"a nasty piece of cross-platform bloatware that's in serious need of a total overhaul"

unwanted software included on a new computer or mobile device by the manufacturer.
"users must initially contend with the usual bevy of bloatware (unnecessary toolbars, games of questionable value


source:google search

The term bloatware is subjected to each individual user's interpretation. Here, I have compiled what I feel is the most common bloatware files in the Android Operating System.  Then I have taken it a few steps farther and removed more un needed files to some of you. You may not agree, so I have divided it up into different zips..Each zip going a little farther.  You can choose your flavor.   Please be advised that these zip files will remove .apk files from your system. So be sure to do a backup, in case you want to revert back.
READ THE LISTS CAREFULLY.  IF YOU'RE UNSURE, ASK ME.

Root is not needed.  Presently, you must have a custom recovery.  I'll have some zips coming later for MI Recovery, but these zips will fail if flashed in Mi Recovery, so be patient.


UPdate: working in MIUI8. I tested zips 5 and 6. No issues or bootlooping.

compatible with cpMIUI

THE BLOATKILL ZIPS WILL BREAK OTA OR IN SOME CASES RESTORE STOCK RECOVERY.  It's advised to download and flash the full ROM in custom recovery, then reRun the bloatkill zip.

Instead of editing zips and providing to every person with there specified zip files you could also make only 1 bloatkill having all the features and use aroma installer so that while flashing zip anyone can select there preferred options. And ya thanks for making these files.

In bloatkill 5 I don't want to remove - paymentservice(if i cant do payments after removing this),picotts,user dictionary provider,vpn dialogs,stock browser,BrowserProxyProvider(if its needed by any browser),google books,google drive,play games(if I can dowload these Google apps from play store I will download them don't make changes to them),miuimusicplayer,music player and music fx,stock file manager,And nvidia files if it affects gaming performance.  Can you provide this zip file

I know its a big list that's why I was thinking of aroma intaller

U do a great work with the different zips.  The system runs much smoother than before and I never see 1200mb free ram with my MiPad.
I am very glad that I can help u with this.

Looking forward to a next great project from u.
