Debloating & Optimizing Nox

Debloating Nox

Nox, despite being the most feature-filled Android emulator, has a lot of negativity surrounding it due to their antics when it comes to making income off of their program. It is known for running repeated advertisments in the background, calling home and passing along system information (outside of your Android instance) as well as a vast amount of potentially sensitive data in an encrypted payload back to their multitude of servers. With the following preventitive measures, we can stop a majority of this happening as well as greatly improve the overall performance.

  1. Download and Install a fresh copy of Nox. The latest version is fine (for now). If you already have it installed, that is fine too. No need to reinstall.

  2. Enable Root Mode on Nox by clicking the gear icon and then checking the Root Startup box.

  3. Install a new Launcher from the Play Store. ANYTHING but Nox's default. I suggest Nova Launcher.

  4. Once your launcher of choice is installed, click the Home icon and choose Nova Launcher and to Always Use This Launcher.

  5. Go to your App Drawer and open File Manager and navigate to system -> app. In this folder, find Launcher_X.X.X_*.apk and com.facebook.lite.apk – delete them. If it says they are not found after tapping delete, just tap delete again.

  6. Close Nox and navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and right click the hosts file and open it in Notepad (Run as Administrator if needed) or a plain text editor of your choice (e.g. Notepad++, VS Code, etc.) – once open, append the following list to the bottom of the file:

Once appended, save and close Notepad.

  1. Navigate to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Nox and open Conf.ini in the same editor used for hosts above. Once open, change the following options to the values defined below:
pop_ads_refresh_time=9223372036854775807
service_qq=0
service_qq_link=<a target=\"_blank\" href=\"#\" style=\"display: none;\"></a>
collect_behavior_enable=false
collect_behavior_interveral=9223372036854775807
root=false

Afterwards, save and close the file. Right Click it, go to Properties, and check Read Only so Nox will not revert these changes.

Once this is all done, you are free to re-open Nox and continue playing as usual.

Optimization

Ragnarok Mobile as well as a select few of other games have an in-game 2K resolution mode achievable by the iPad Pro and high-end 4K Android tablets. It can be enabled while using Nox by setting a proper resolution and DPI.

If you have already performed the steps above, you will need close Nox and temporarily uncheck Read Only on your conf.ini. Afterwards, open Nox and click the Cog on the top right and go to Advanced settings.

Performance Settings
These are computer-specific, so go to Start Menu -> Right Click My PC -> Properties and see how many cores your CPU has and how much memory you have.

Cores
Same amount as your processor has (e.g. i7-8700k has 6)

Memory
If your system has 16GB or more of memory, 8096MB is more than sufficient.
If your system has 8GB of memory, 4096MB is sufficient.
If your system has 4GB or less of memory, I'm sorry– but you shouldn't attempt 2K.

Startup settings
Width: 2560
Height: 1440
DPI: 320

Miscellaneous
Graphics rendering mode: Speed (DirectX)
Frame settings: 60
Mouse acceleration: Checked (Turn off mouse acceleration in Windows)

Thanks @Log1x for this simple (but well written) tutorial! I have 2 questions:

  • Are there any differences between setting collect_behavior_enable with false instead of a long?
  • Did you try to remove ads in nox loading screen?

  1. Modify config.ini is not enough for creating the new emulator, the new emulator would have default configurations.
  2. When you import your backup of those NOX apps that have been removed, NOX will restore all of them and popup up guide again...

What I do not see on the version I am running (6.2.8.5) is the path for the "ads" folder nor is there a config.ini file in the path noted. There is a conf.ini file but it does not contain most of the values from the post above.

Thanks!

Not sure if you still update this, but after installing Nova launcher and deleting Nox's native launcher, it will reinstall after a day or so. Strangely enough, the folder where the Nox launcher apk is in is marked with a modified date that was weeks ago.

It seems like deleting it is only for show, it never really lets you delete it. Or that it restores from a save of an earlier date. Anything to counter this? Everytime nox launcher is reinstalled, it refuses to let Nova launcher be default.

is there a way to debloat for Mac users?

For Mac users, the configuration file is inside the Nox bundle itself. Control-Click on Nox Player App (the application) and choose Show Package Contents. Then you'll find the configuration file inside Contents/MacOS/conf/. Once you're done editing it, do a Get Info on the file and choose 'Locked'. That'll render it uneditable.

On Mac, your hosts file is at /etc/hosts ('etc' is a hidden folder on the top level of your system drive), but I'd recommend installing a firewall like Hands Off! or Little Snitch and putting the blocked domains into that instead.

Even in Admin Command Prompt, this command gives 'Access is denied.' after pressing Enter (I'm the only user, am the Admin, and right-clicked on Start and clicked 'Command Prompt (Admin)', and am getting this error despite this). What gives?

Edit: It appears to have worked despite the error after taking ownership of the directory (the error still happens, but full control is now blocked for SYSTEM under permissions). I think the access that was being denied was for 'Special permissions', since my system, for whatever reason, allows that only for certain file types (mainly types interpreted as 'executable' by the OS), and not ever for folders.

Nox kept reverting to the nox launcher after every restart. I ended up opening the file manager and searching for "launcher". I deleted all the folders that came up except "com.teslacoilsw.launcher".
Then restarted nox and it started with the nova launcher.
So far this seems to be working, hopefully it doesn't revert in a day or so as pxssy stated.

The result now is when I open nox, it just shows the background wallpaper after loading and then eventually just a black screen. Nothing happens even when I wait.

Been on Rag M EU for just over a week and my Nox client was really really starting to suffer, it felt like I had a stutter every time I auto attacked, to the point where it slowed down how fast I was attacking, maybe it was more of a visual thing, I had to kill stuff with sonic blow on my assassin cause it got so bad. Also felt like the client got progressively worse the longer it was open. Anyway thanks to above it appears to be running great, it's certainly a lot smoother and I enjoy the increased visuals.

Steps taken that vary from OP since it's a few months old:
service_qq is not in that particular config file anymore, I ignored it
added extra domains provided by GodSaveEarth
make sure you do optimization before making the config file read only

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Nox\loading\ads

If you want this to be permanent after you delete the file named ads just make a new blank text document and rename it to ads (be sure to remove the file type so it looks like the older file). After that place it into the folder you deleted the other file from (if it is not already there) and then make it read-only. That should prevent nox from modifying it. if I could somehow find/access the file where they store the default loaders and crap in windows I could rename the apk for nox loader to the same name as the one they use then place it into the folder where they kept the old 1 and make it read-only if needed. For that matter, it may be possible to just make a fake nox loader apk that is blank and put it where the original one was but not 100% sure that would even work.

It's been 7 days since I did the debloat and unfortunately Nox performance has just gotten worse and worse. No matter if DirectX or OpenGL is selected or 1-8 cores used, it seems as soon as I boot Ragnarok I have one CPU that is immediately bottle-necked at 100%, while the remaining assigned CPUs are chilling at 20-30%. Nox works well 'sometimes' but the longer the gaming session the worse it gets, and restarting Nox doesn't always seem to fix it either. I tried all of the popular emus, with similar results. I have since switched to MeMu 3-7-9-0 which came as a reddit recommendation from over year old post, but the performance on it is quite stellar compared to the other emus, solid 60 fps and spread CPU utilization across 4 cores, highest utilization on any core 60-80% which actually gives the core some breathing room. If you do go for MeMu 3-7-9-0 remember to change the type of phone you are emulating from Galaxy S7 to S8 plus for Ragnarok app to be allowed to DL from play store. Also I believe this particular emu is utilizing my GPU more than any other had, (12% utilization on GTX 980 Ti vs 5-8% on all the other emus). My processor is an Intel Core i7-6900K if anyone is wondering.

Your choices are to try modifying the settings above to get it working for you (I got it working just fine for myself). Or, to get an older version of nox (in the older versions you could use lucky patcher to completly disable/remove that crap and make it act like a normal phone). The older version does still work to do that but it can not emulate newer phones and that may be a problem for some of you. It might even be possible to get the files from the newer version to work in the older version to make it so that version can support the newer phones but I doubt it.

Activate Root in Nox and restart
Install an alternative launcher like Nova Launcher
Get a file explorer that supports Root (i took Solid Explorer)
Go to System > app > rename Launcher xxx .apk in apk.bak
Now remove Root Access in Nox and restart

Now the new Launcher should be permanent.
If root access doesn't get removed afterwards Nox launcher will get reselected.

Is there really nothing you can do get rid of this f******* nox launcher?

Activate Root in Nox and restart
Install an alternative launcher like Nova Launcher
Get a file explorer that supports Root (i took Solid Explorer)
Go to System > app > rename Launcher xxx .apk in apk.bak
Now remove Root Access in Nox and restart

Now the new Launcher should be permanent.
If root access doesn't get removed afterwards Nox launcher will get reselected.

That is not true, I have root enabled and have had it like that for more than a month now without having it go back to default nox launcher. But I followed the op, plus every suggestion in the comments, and I deleted the original launcher.apk (not just rename).

You could compare a before and after state of your computer to see what Nox player installed in your computers.
There are softwares for that out there. I used to do it a lifetime ago and I can t remember now with what program.
But I found this one http://www.blueproject.ro/systracer/,

This way it would be easy to trace modifications made by Nox.

For Graphics rendering mode, I suggest to use OpenGL+ to allow apps perform better especially while browsing to prevent stuttering screen glitch happens.

Almost forgot, thanks for the making this post Log1x.

Hopefully last edit. I noticed if you idle / AFK while NOX still runs in background, it'll actually bloat and eats almost all available Disk (possibly mining bitcoins?). This however won't happen while you're using NOX or completely terminate the NOX.

Something that also helps a great deal--

Grab the base.apk from Nova Launcher, and shove it into the same Launcher folder you deleted (preferably) the Nox Launcher from. It helps permanently ensure it doesn't relaunch Nox Later.

This video provides some excellent additional info and is still current.

Tried to do what ArynBlack but somehow Nox defaulted back to the Nox homescreen today. It lasted for 3 weeks though.

If you're on macOS and Nox asks for your admin password, decline.

Possibly another domain to block:

I have also noticed Nox editing the conf.ini file on its own and setting some of the values back.
Apparently making the file read only prevents it for doing so while the values that are in the file are being accepted by the program.
You cannot configure the settings from Nox itself after this is done, so I would recommend unlocking the file and just edit whatever you need from the file itself rather than Nox and relock it.

Same thing with the ads file in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Nox\loading , a blank ads file can be created to replace the one Nox put in and set to read only.

Some games/apps take advantage of 120hz displays as well. For anyone using a high refresh rate monitor, 120fps can be used, but I have noticed that some apps do not enable the feature unless you spoof a 120hz phone like an ASUS ROG II. The following values can be modified in the conf.ini file to do so:

frames=120
vm_brand=asus
vm_manufacturer=asus
vm_model=ASUS_I001D

On the newest version of Nox (currently at 7.0.0.1), I cannot seem to delete the default Nox launcher. Any way to solve this?

I just checked for 7.0.0.1, the process for removing the launcher is still the same, I am using Root Browser Classic by JRummy Apps, delete

/system/app/Launcher/launcher_X.X.X_en_signed.apk

Using a file manager that supports root directory browsing and restart the emulator. Just be sure you already have another launcher installed and set as default before doing this.
