Default [GUIDE] How to use AROMA INSTALLER in any ROM/MOD

STEPS:

(1) Download this META-INF

(2) Extract & you will find "META-INF" folder

(3) Go to META-INF/com/google/android/, replace the updater-script in this folder with your ROM/MOD updater-script.

(4) In the same folder, "aroma-config" file is also present, its contents are as follows:

Code:
##
#
# AROMA Installer - based on the Mod-installer by KamikaZeeFu
#       (c) 2011 by Ahmad Amarullah
#           amarullz - xda-developers
#           http://www.amarullz.com/
# NEO ROM AROMA SCRIPT BY LEVENTCCC
theme("ics");

calibrate("0.9263","21","0.9944","1","yes");

viewbox(
  "Welcome",
    "\n\n\n\n\n"+
    "      You're about to flash\n"+
"      NeO RoM v3.0\n\n"+
    "\n\n\n"+
    "Press Next to continue the installation...",
  "icons/info"
);


textbox(
  #-- Title
    "NEO ROM v3",
  
  #-- Subtitle
    "FEATURES",
  
  #-- Icon
    "@update",
  
  #-- Arg 4
    resread("changelogs.txt")
);

appendvar("installmsg","\n\nPlease Select Installation Type Below:");


install(
  "Installing",
  "Now flashing the Neo ROM...\nPlease Wait...",
  "icons/install"
);

# Set Next Text fo Finish
ini_set("text_next", "Finish");

viewbox(
  "Installation Completed",
  "Congratulations...\n\n"+
  "Your installation is now complete\n\n"+
  "Press Finish, reboot and enjoy.\n\nThanks",
  "icons/info"
);
(5) Editing aroma-config file:
Code:
theme("ics");
4 themes are available- ics, sense, miui, miui4

Code:
resread("changelogs.txt")
"changelogs.txt" is also present in the folder
Code:
META-INF/com/google/android/
Edit this file to include features/changelog of your ROM/MOD.

(6) Final step is to replace your ROM's META-INF folder with this META-INF

NEO ROM v3 uses very basic feature of AROMA.
For adding advanced options, menus refer the links below:

AROMA Installer provides you the option of Customizing the way of your ROM installation buddy. Its providing the User the choice to select what he wants to install in his mobile. It can be customized for the apps to be installed, kernel to be flashed, fonts to be used, scripts to be flashed and many more. To feel it, you can flash Pankaj's Neo ROM 3.0 or my MaZel ROM 1.0

Same here... I'm trying do it for Atrix's roms.

It works like a charme, show options to optional apps, languages. But at the end, it show "finished", but does not install nothing... Can someone help?

You should change your updater-binary's name to updater-binary-installer and overwrite the one in original META-INF folder.
