Un-/Install System apps without rooting the device Code Answer

Is there a way to push apks to the system/app folder without rooting the device?

I found several ways to do it on rooted devices but I am looking for a way to do it without first rooting the device.

If it makes any difference, I want to do it on a Samsung S4 and use twrp as custom recovery.

PS: First rooting and the unrooting is, unfortunately also not an option.

Answer

You CAN uninstall WITHOUT rooting:

To uninstall an app:

adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 app--package--name--here

Example, uninstalling youtube:

adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.youtube

To list apps by package names:

adb shell pm list packages

To list only system package names:

adb shell pm list packages -s

Here is a list of system apps that you may want to uninstall:

adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.chrome &&
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.htc.sense.browser &&
