   -Common
    *Bigger changelog then v2.50 :P


      ....Oh and new AROMA Installer v2.70B6

_______________________________________________________________________________


ROM Cleaner v2.5 FINAL - 2013-03-11


   -Common
    *All scripts are heavily modified.
     Now, ROM Cleaner will be able to mount external sd and internal sdcard
     External SDCARD will have first priority.
     If no external sdcard can be found, internal sdcard will be used.
    *Removed unused .sh scripts from the zip.
    *Removed the reboot/exit animation to speed up things a bit.

    *ROM Cleaner will now read from the ROMCleaner.log and based on the result, 
     print a status message in recovery. This method will be much more accurate. 
     And there's no more need to have the "test" line in the ROMCleaner_user.txt/NO-Sense_user.txt as before
    *If you have removed Setup Wizard and then perform a ROM update without wipe,
     ROM Cleaner will remove the Setup Wizard. This just to prevent black screen after dirty flash.

    *Changed the lockscreen options menu. If you pick HTC Lockscreen, 
     HTC Lockscreen Shorcut Provider by itandy will be installed directly.
     If you pick AOSP lockscreen and then want to restore HTC Lockscreen again,
     the app will be uninstalled.
     Also the Lockscreen menu will always be available even if you have set AOSP LS before.

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
-*- Flash ROM Cleaner ZIP and AROMA UI will load. In main menu, press "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
* If you disabled HTC lockscreen, an option to re-enable HTC lockscreen will appear 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

Temporary screenshots...
