So you guys bought an Amazon Fire 7 tablet and it actually came loaded with the Amazon bloat app. Amazon is not just selling you the seven-inch tablet for a mere $50 (8GB), however, also the apps that bloat your device as well. In this article, we are going to talk about How to Remove Amazon Bloatware From Fire 7 Tablet. Let’s begin!

You guys simply cannot just uninstall it directly from the tablet. Not everyone wants each and every built-in app so they should be able to uninstall it as well. All you want is ADB tools on your PC and know how to use them as well.

You guys can either create a batch file on Windows PC or a bash file in Mac or Linux as well. All you guys have to know is that you have to add extra “./” even before the commands in Mac and Linux as well. e.g. Like, if “ADB devices” is for Windows then “./adb devices” is for Mac and Linux as well.

How to Remove Amazon Bloatware From Fire 7 Tablet

Tablets are a really famous reading device. The dedicated eReader concept might not be as popular as we say, owning an iPad actually. However, folks do still buy and read on them too. Well, Amazon’s Fire tablets are still going strong in this niche; they are affordable, they run Android, and also they support Amazon’s ebook format too. There’s little more an avid book reader could want except for maybe just a simple way in order to remove ads and bloatware from the Amazon Fire 7 as well.

Install ADB Tools

In order to remove ads and delete bloatware from the Amazon Fire 7. You guys will have to install ADB tools. As of last year, you can also download the ADB tools without even downloading the whole Android SDK.

You can download ADB and Fastboot tools from Google for Linux, Darwin, and Windows as well. Just extract the contents of the folder to wherever is convenient. You will run commands from inside this folder so do not actually bury it too deep.

Turn On ADB Debugging

You guys have to enable ADB debugging on your Android Fire 7 tablet before you even can execute an ADB command.

You just have to open the Settings app, press the Device section. And on the device screen, just click on the build number or in this case Serial number 7 times. This will basically unlock the developer options just under it. There, you have to turn the “Enable ADB debugging” option on as well.

You guys will also see an option in order to allow USB debugging. Just turn it on.

You need to connect your tablet to your PC. And open up Device Manager and then check under USB devices in order to make sure it is properly detected or not. Then, open the folder that you guys extracted the ADB tools to.

Then hold down Shift, and from the context menu, and choose the ‘Open Command Prompt window here’ option as well. If you guys are on Windows 10, then you might have to add the Open Command Prompt window here option back to File Explorer as well.

A Command Prompt window will now open. Just run the following command in order to make sure your device is running okay.

adb devices

This will actually return a list of all the connected devices. If it doesn’t or if the device appears offline, then you need to check if you get a prompt on your tablet of any sort asking to enable USB debugging.
