I uninstalled the following apps using TWRP + Supersu. Then using ES File Explorer.

I removed the .odex files of uninstalled apps. Then rebooted to recovery, and just cleaned the /cache partition.

I have personally tested in MI4W & MI Pad 1 (MIUI 7.xx partially)

If you have some other apps in China ROM, please give the list of installed system apps and system priv-apps.


way to delete, if you dont have rooted your phone is,
press vol down + power button for (more or less 10sec)
fastboot mode will appear.
(keep twrp 3.0.-.-. version for your MI device downloaded from twrp site (free).)
Install minimal adb + fastboot in  your pc. put twrp image at same adb location.
now open a command promt  at adb.exe location and give the folowing comand
fastboot boot twrp.img (replace the twrp file name with your actuial one).


the device will be booted in twrp mode (this is only one time once you restart twrp will never come back unless executing the same above commands).


now mount /data & /system.
Enter into /system and subfolders delete whatever you want.


More updates are coming.
** I am not responsible if you do anything wrong with your device.

Replying is cr@p! Here is the hidden content:

Hidden content
Assuming, that you are also not using Mi account, this is the list of apps I have removed (uninstalled) which were in my /system/app folder :-
*Analytics (AnalyticsCore.apk) - can be removed or you can disable the WakeupService.
*ANTHalService - (used for fitness accessories)
*Basic daydreams (BasicDreams.apk)
*BugReport - optional (keep it otherwise, you can't see the summary if any app stops unexpectedly)
*Calculator
*Mi Cloud (CloudService.apk)
*Email
*Black Hole (Galaxy4.apk) - live wallpaper
*Holo Spiral - live wallpaper
*Android Live Wallpaper (LiveWallpapers.apk)
*Magic Smoke - live wallpaper
*Uniplay service (MiLinkService.apk) - maybe required for Wi-Fi display connection
*Noise Field - live wallpaper
*Phase Beam - live wallpaper
*Photo screensavers (PhotoTable.apk)
*PicoTTS - text to speech engine
*Battery Saver (PowerKeeper.apk)
*Security Service Plugin (SecurityAdd.apk)
*SystemAdSolution
*XiaomiAccount (IMPORTANT: This app is required when Android boots for the first time. So if you have removed/disabled this app after you have finished setting up Android for the first time, do not factory reset or erase /data till this app is installed again.)
*Xiaomi Services Framework - DO NOT REMOVE (otherwise Phone app gets stuck in crash-loop)

/system/priv-app removed apps :-
*Cloud Backup (for apps backup to Mi account)
*Find Device - required by Mi account app (same instructions are applicable as for XiaomiAccount app above )
*mipub - purpose is unknown, removed it
*YellowPage - DO NOT REMOVE (otherwise you cannot open contact details in Contacts and Dialer app)

Why the hell to reply to view the content? All it does it spams the thread.
I have some additions :-
My list is based on MIUI V8.0.1.0.KHCMIDG
This is the first Global Stable MIUI 8 update received for Redmi 1S.

Note : I deleted these apps before flashing the ROM directly from the update zip file.
To do that on my phone, I used ZArchiver
http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.zdevs.zarchiver

I used Philz-Touch 6 recovery with Signature Verification disabled to flash this modified zip.

From /data/miui/app
noncustomized
customized
You can delete both the folders (but if you also remove the Google apps in this folder, after factory resetting the phone, Google apps don't work; you need to manually install Config Updater, Google One-Time initializer, Services Framework, Calendar sync and Play Store again)

From /system/priv-app
CleanMaster.apk
Mipub.apk
[WeatherProvider.apk, Weather.apk] (WARNING : MIUI shows weather info in the notification shade; maybe Android UI will stop working if you remove the weather app; not tested yet)

From /system/app
Stk.apk (Sim Toolkit : optional)
BasicDreams.apk (MIUI doesn't daydream)
PicoTts.apk (Optional : You can use Google TTS instead)
PhaseBeam.apk
KSICibaEngine.apk
Calculator.apk (Optional : you can use other calculator instead)
Galaxy4.apk
MiDiscover.apk (purpose unknown)
NoiseField.apk
MagicSmokeWallpapers.apk
PaymentService.apk (MiWallet)
AnalyticsCore.apk
TranslationService.apk
AntHalService.apk (Needed probably for Fitness Accessories)
LiveWallpapers.apk
HoloSpiralWallpaper.apk
LiveWallpapersPicker.apk
SecurityCoreAdd.apk (WARNING : Don't remove this app on those Mi phones which have the Second Space/Dual apps feature shown in the Update info/What's new in Updater app)
Email.apk (Optional : Gmail is better and uses less RAM than this app)
SystemAdSolution.apk
VisualizationWallpapers.apk
PhotoTable.apk

From /system/tts/lang_pico
Delete this folder and all contents if you're gonna use some other TTS engine like Google.

The people who don't have Mi account can remove some more apps apart from these, the list of which, I haven't prepared yet. However, these apps can be removed by all MIUI 8 Global ROM users irrespective of whether they have an Mi account or not.
