Hey @kprice! Did you use the same worklet through our official worklet catalog? I checked in with our worklets team and that worklet does remove the calculator and camera and all other preinstalled bloatware unless there’s an exception added.  Hope that helps clarify!

I was able to download and fix the tools removed. I just didnt expect it to do what it did. Thanks Sophia
