ROM Cleaner v5.0 r3 - 2012-08-28 -All scripts packed in unique AROMA Installer -Almost 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. -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 * Nik Project X more to come...please let us know what ROMs we should add... _______________________________________________________________________________________________ ROM Cleaner v3.5 - 2012-03-29 New ROMCleaner program: -Wildcards for apps is now possible. ex.
