Info 2 Guide & Info

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

Well, I think I have to blame time and HTC Sense 4.0 for the delay

Requirements: 4EXT or CWM Recovery
Deodexed ROM. We are working on a version that will handle *.odex files as well.


If you use a Stock ROM that means you have odexed ROM.
ROM Cleaner will only remove apk files and not odex files at the moment.

You need a custom recovery installed so you will be able to flash ROM Cleaner.

I do recommend you to flash a custom ROM before using any of these tools.
