In quite a few apps you get a 5 second countdown when removing an item from a list, for instance when removing an app from the drawer. Is there any way to disable it?

@mrzapp also note, that you can also just ignore this timer, and continue whatever youre doing. you dont have to wait for it to finish...

Correct but also incorrect. You may continue within the app or continue with another app. But you may not close the app as long as the timer is running else action is aborted.

Or see below answer for patching the timer duration (minimum: 1 s).

Ok. Will do. But it's redundant information.

with the latest update you should be able to swipe them away. there is a patch from ancelad to set the remorse timer fron default.5 ro i.e. 2 sec this is a global setting btw, you per app

and if app sets the.timer itself, which a few do, then it will not help. i know one app that does that

I agree. Two or three seconds would be better

It's called a 'Remorse Timer' and your question is basically a duplicate;
