Code:
ROM Cleaner v2.5 FINAL - 2013-03-17

   -Common
    *Removed exit/reboot animations to speed up things a bit
    *Removed unused *.sh scripts from the zip
    
    *ROM Cleaner (Sense/NO-Sense/CM-AOSP) will now read from the ROMCleaner.log 
     and based on the result, print a status message in recovery 
     This method will be much more accurate and there's no more need 
     to have the "test" line in your *_user.txt as before
    *If you have removed Setup Wizard and then perform a ROM update without wipe,
     ROM Cleaner will remove the Setup Wizard. This just to prevent black screen after dirty flash.
    *Added more logging code:
     List all apps in /system and /data before and after ROM Cleaner
   
   -Backup Tool
    *Added "exit to recovery" option after "Backup Tool"
    *Removed some unnecessary files from Rosie backup script

     the app will be uninstalled.
     Also the Lockscreen menu will always be available even if you have set AOSP LS.

    *Added more safe to remove apps

   -Additional Scripts Menu

-All scripts packed in unique AROMA Installer

-All scripts are rewritten to work better in a AROMA environment

-Backup Tool

 * All backups are now stored in /sdcard/ROMCleaner/Backup
  That means "FirstBoot" folder is empty unless you add apps manually.
 
 * You will have the to choose from a menu what to backup.

-New in ROM Cleaner:

 * ROMCleaner.txt has been updated with some new apps and descriptions

 * If you are about to flash ROM Cleaner after first boot, then you will get a warning and the option to clear HTC Sense data.

-New in ROM Cleaner NO-Sense:

 * NO-Sense is not using ROMCleaner.txt any more! 
  It has been replaced by NO-Sense.txt and NO-Sense_user.txt
 
 * You will be able to choose between 5 different launchers in AROMA: 
  APEX, NOVA, Holo Launcher HD, Zeam Launcher GO Launcher EX!

  menu if you have disabled it)
 
 * Thanks to itandy and his "Lockscreen Shortcuts App" 
  you will now be able to use HTC Lockscreen with shortcuts!
 
 * Fixed PIN Security when using AOSP Lockscreen
 
-Common for both cleaner methods:

 * If you use your own *_user.txt you must rebase it on v2.0!!! delete your previous ROMCleaner folder from your sdcard and start all over.
 
 * You can decide if you want to restore your apps during ROM Cleaner install.
 
 * You can also decide if you want to install files located in "FirstBoot" folder.
 * And of course we added a "No Cleaning" option as well which will 
  let you restore apps and install files like normal!
 
-App restore changes:

 * When you choose to restore your apps a script will check if you use one of
  the supported ROMs. If you use any of the listed ROMs below all pre-installed
  apps will be removed before all other apps are copied to your /data/app.
  This is to prevent old/double apps from being installed.
   
-Supported ROMs at the moment:

 * ViperOneS
 * TrickDroid
 * Axiom
   
   please let us know if you want us to add other ROMs as well...
   

There is even more stuff added in this release but we left some 
stuff yet to be discovered by YOU

Download this right now and try it out!

All feedback is very much appreciated!

Default Quick Start & Guides

Guide For ROM Cleaner and Additional Tools!

We did make an effort to make it as clear as possible on each AROMA screen. However it's always nice to know what the scripts do and when to use them...

So let's start!



Main Menu
In our main menu you will find:

* Backup Tool
* ROM Cleaner
--- ROM Cleaner (Sense)
--- ROM Cleaner (NO-Sense)
--- Skip cleaning step
* Additional Scripts
--- Settings Restorer
--- Setup Wizard Remover
--- Apps & Mods Installer
--- Run all scripts in one GO!
* Logs collection
* Advanced Power Menu


Backup Tool
Will backup:

-*- Applications (Not app data)
-*- Accounts (Settings - Accounts)
-*- Bluetooth pairings
-*- HTC Sense launcher settings (and 3rd party widgets)
-*- HTC Mail accounts (including Inbox)
-*- WiFi keys

Important Note: Use this before flashing a new ROM flash with full wipe

How to apply:

--- Open ROM Cleaner AROMA and press "Backup Tool"
--- When done, press "Power Menu" and "Exit" .... or whatever you want...


ROM Cleaner

Flashing procedure for pure ROM Cleaner users!

-*- Flash a ROM with full wipe
-*- Start ROM Cleaner AROMA and pick "ROM Cleaner"
-*- Pick "Sense" or "NO-Sense" script, press Next
-*- "NO-Sense" users will get a launcher menu and the option to use HTC lockscreen or AOSP lockscreen
-*- Next menu is optional (should be pretty clear)
-*- Press Next again and wait until ROM Cleaner is done
-*- Press Reboot and use your phone like normal

Skip cleaning step

If you use this option, nothing will be removed and you will still be able to restore your apps.


Additional Scripts
Important Note: Use this menu only after a full boot!

* Settings Restorer > This script will restore data already saved with Backup Tool
* HTC Setup Wizard Remover > This script will remove the HTC Setup Wizard. IT's pointless to have once your phone is set up
* Apps & Mods Installer > This is a batch install script. Apps, mods, files in /sdcard/ROMCleaner/SecondBoot will be installed when you use this script
* Run All scripts in one GO! > This is a batch install for all scripts in this menu


Logs Collection
Use this option when we request logs from you.

This script will collect all needed logs + "*user.txt" and create "RC_LogCollector.tar" in ROMCleaner folder. Upload this file and send it to us on XDA or IRC.


Advanced Power Menu
In this menu you will find the following options:

* Reboot your device
* Exit to Recovery
* Reboot to Bootloader
* Enable Mobile Network


How To Edit Your Personal User.txt
Steps you need to do:

--- Windows users, download Notepad++ and install it.
--- Download "ROMCleaner_user.txt" or "NO-Sense_user.txt" from the firstpost
--- Open the text file with Notepad++

In the text file you will find two columns with app names and a description in this guide we use AdobeReader.apk as an example.


To Remove a file with ROMCleaner
Code:
AdobeReader.apk         Adobe Reader PDF reader
In the case above "AdobeReader.apk" will be removed.


To keep a file with ROMCleaner If you decide to keep it, add a "#" at the beginning of the line:
Code:
#AdobeReader.apk         Adobe Reader PDF reader

Let's say we are done with the edits. To continue just complete next list:

--- Press the "X" in the upper right corner of the screen to save the changes.
--- Copy the file onto your sdcard. The file must be located in "/sdcard/ROMCleaner" folder.

Now ROM Cleaner script will always read that file!

Easy?
Yes? Good because this is and should be easy

Is it possible to flash the No-Sense RomCleaner after the first boot? I just flashed a ROM and got everything setup.
