Just want to give some feedback to the dev's and users how I'm using these scriptfiles. Maybe it can be usefull for some ppl to show it's not difficult at all to gain a lot of time during Rom installation taking almost no effort at all. If I can do it, everyone can
So what I wanted to do after I read the manual in OP by DUDE360 was:
- Backup apps that I'm using at the moment;
- Flash Rom;
- Remove most of the Sense stuff accept (weather)lockscreen;
- Auto-install all backuped files;
- Apply my mods (All-in-One, CRT, Quick settings XL, UOT, boot- and downanimation and OC daemon settings automatically;
I can tell you that all of the above worked out perfectly!!!!
So here's what I did flasing a new ROM (and will be doing in the future, for sure). In this post I use the same numbers as I do on my SD-card so I can recall what I did, or do a fast re-install.
Before I went flashing I made sure my mods were added to the SD-Card in /SDCard/Romcleaner/secondboot/ in exact the same format as the are in the mod-zips.
Example: In AIO mod there's a dir: /system/media/weather. Copy it to /sdcard/ROMCLeaner/secondboot/system/media/weather. I opened two windows and copied (extracted) everything. Just like that. Did this with all mods leaving out the META-INF dirs.
If you use a more than om mods make sure you add them to your SD-Card in exact the same order as you flash them normally and let the new files overwrite the existing ones. It's no guarantee it will work, but it is the safest way to get it fully working. It works for me, using all of the mods mentioned above (and even more right now)
Actual Flashing order
00 Flashed: Folder_Creator.zip only the first time to make sure all directories are there where they belong;
01 Flashed: Backup_Apps_to_SDCARD.zip (all insatlled apps in backup dir);
02 Flashed: Superwipe.zip (automatic reboot into recovery);
03 Flashed: ROM (ARHD in this case);
04 Flashed: Rom_Cleaner_v2.2.zip (did no modifications to it. Lockscreen is kept by the satandard script) It reboots itself in a normal way (not into recovery that is);
05 Skip the HTC Setup Wizard for the biggest part - I only do the Wifi setup.
06 Reboot into recovery;
07 Flashed: HtcSetupWizard_Remover_v4.0.zip
08 Flashed: Mods_and_App_Installer_v1.2.zip
Now I know, if I want to keep Sense (I'm not a Sense hater, lol), I can always use the "auto-install" option flashing a new rom by skipping step 04, 05 and 07....
I'm now flashing and installing (almost 200 apps) and do a full setup of my phone in Less than 25 minutes after a full wipe!!!!!
PS Sorry for the long post,
just hope it's an addition on the manual in OP and useful for some....
