Announcement from Dark3n: A maid for your Android, to keep it clean and tidy.
Description:
Quote:

Ive started working on a tool to clean up after apps (inspired by this thread).

Nobody is perfect and android neither.
Apps you have already deleted sometimes leave data behind.
The system constantly creates logs, crash reports and debug files you don't really need.
The market leaves temporary files of downloaded apps behind.
Lets not go on here...

SD Maid is a universal file tool that helps you keep your device neat and tidy.


Features
  • Storage overview
  • Root explorer & search
  • Find & remove left over files from uninstalled apps
  • Freeze, Uninstall, Export or kill apps
  • Toggle autstart entries
  • Find & delete common unnecessary files
  • Clean applications by removing various cache files without loosing any data
  • Find & delete duplicate files
  • Overview over biggest files/directories on your device
  • Optimize your SQL databases
  • Show last modified files
  • and more...

Installation instructions
* Install this like any other app.
* If your device is rooted, you will be asked if you want to grant SD Maid root permission upon its first launch
* It is up to you what you choose, in each case SD Maid will make best possible use of its features.
* Have the SuperUser application remember this choice, repeated prompts can cause unexpected behavior

Download links
SD Maid can either be downloaded from Google Play or direct from my server, appropriate links are collected here. The unlocker for SD Maid Pro can currently only be obtained through Google Play. I really recommend to only use these two sources. If you can verify that the apk files are original you may put your device at risk.

Changelog
A detailed changelog can be found on Github and most update release posts also contain some explanation of what's new.

Bugs / Requests
Please use the issue tracker for any kind of bug reports or feature requests for both SD Maid stable & beta. I'll also discuss issues else where but usually a lot of helpful information gets lost if it's not organised, so I prefer the issue tracker .

Beta testing
If you are interested in beta versions and want to help test new features you can find the appropriate links here There is also some discussion in SD Maids G+ community.

Translations
If you want to help translate look here: SD Maid @ crowdin.com
Thank you!

How to help me troubleshoot your issues

Prerequisites:
  • Being able to record full logcats. This means having a computer attached and using "adb logcat" to pipe the output into a file or using an app like catlog to write the logcat buffer into a file on your device. Some devices require root to record logcats via apps.

Instructions:
  • Enable debug or verbose mode in SD Maid.
  • Option A: You can still start SD Maid. Go into advanced settings and change the debugmode value to a different number (0=normal,1=debug,2=verbose).
  • Option B: You can not start SD Maid and can't get into the advanced settings. Create a file (or rename something) to "debug_sdm" or "verbose_sdm" on your main sdcard. The file can be empty or full, it just has to exist.
  • If i didn't say otherwise, pick "verbose" mode.
  • Now kill SD Maid completely. If you are unsure how to best do it, just restart the device.
  • Start recording the logcat via your computer or app.
  • Open SD Maid and reproduce the issue you want to show me.
  • After reproducing the issue wait 10 seconds and stop the logcat recording.
  • Now you can mail me the txt/log file or upload it somewhere. Be aware that the recording can contain private information such as received SMS in that time or your filenames, so maybe mail it ( support at thedarken.eu ) instead of posting it online.
  • The produced file can be anywhere from a few few hundred to a few thousand lines of text.

On start or when pressing refresh?
Could you post the StackTrace maybe?

edit: The force close comes from the directory "/dbdata/databases" not existing hm...
Where would the directory be located on the HD2 ?
edit2: New version up which wont force close
Does this problem of left over directories only exist on the sgs?

I just uploaded a new version which should not force close, but it seems you don't have that directory /dbdata/databases either.

There's no such folder on stock android. Each app have their own folder for data in /data/data/<package name>, which is automatically deleted at uninstall.
