ROM Cleaner v5.0 r3 - 2012-08-06
Corrected missing code for app restore from ../FirstBoot/data/app
Thanks Pjay12 for the heads up
And some other minor changes to the updater-script
ROM Cleaner v5.0 r2 - 2012-08-03
-All scripts packed in unique AROMA Installer
-Almost all scripts are rewritten to work better in a AROMA environment
* All backups are now stored in /sdcard/ROMCleaner/Backup
That means "FirstBoot" folder is empty unless you add apps manually.
-New in ROM Cleaner:
* 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:
* Android Revolution HD
* ER3BUS XL
more to come...please let us know what ROMs we should add...

For Sense 4.0+ ROMs we will release ROM Cleaner v4.0 once it's tested enough
Backup Tool v1.6

Mike1986 & lukogriffioen for inspiration.
The rest of Team Revolution for supporting me.
Special thanks goes to Whiskey103 for hosting my files.
And of course to everyone who supports our work.
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!
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!
* Log collection
* Advanced Power Menu
-*- 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...
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.
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
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
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:
#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!
Yes? Good because this is and should be easy
Me love Sense long time
Seriuosly, I find it well integrated and best UI available on the market, except the HTC Location based on Route66. Just wish they had 4x5 Grid as default, even their new phones with qHD are 4x4!!!
Summer vacation isover for most students out there, and it’s the time to get back to … more
