Default [Tool][AROMA] G2/DZ AIO wipe tool

Introducing the new G2/DZ All in One tool!
This is a "wipe" tool for the G2/DZ with the following features: Nullifier, Formatter, Cache and Dalvik "wiper",
and Error-Checker


Each tool, minus the Cache and Dalvik portion, is customizable, that is to say, you can select the partitions you want targeted, and, in the case of the Nullifier, the number of wipes.

A little about each:

Nullifier: An in-depth (and true) wipe tool.

Formatter: Formats to ext4 and runs an error check afterwards.

Error-checker: Checks for errors and corrects as possible.

Cache and Dalvik "wiper": Not truly a "wiper", but it formats /cache and checks for any errors (see previous) then deletes the Dalvik cache.

For general questions and other info which may not be included here (in other words, if your answer isn't in this thread look in the general thread.) see: General Discussion, Q&A, and more info on The Nullifier

Link to file:

G2-AIO-V1.02

Thanks to:

dragon-son for getting me the needed info for the G2.
and
Matze5800 for getting me the needed info to ensure that this will not brick the DZ.

Known issues:

1. No progress bar on the Nullifier. If people can send me logs I can see about adding this in.
13 Oct: Have what I expect to be the next version out to my testers now.

2. Pressing the back button in the menu system causes AROMA to freeze, this seems to be a problem with AROMA itself. 13 Oct: Come to think of it, this may not be an issue and if so, may be solved with next release as it will have the new AROMA binary in it.

To come:

Working progress bars for the Vanilla G2 and the DZ/G2 with DZ hboot.

I may add a theme to it. I'm not a white background kind of guy.

New AROMA binary, won't really have any impact on what this does but may give better button responsiveness.

There is a very strong maybe that I may add the AROMA FM to this as well. I never thought of doing that until someone mentioned it in the AROMA thread recently, so I may take a look at what it requires and tinker with the one for my phone if my work stays dead. Wait, I think I see a zombie!!! No, no, no such luck.

Loved this tool for my wife's G2x, love it even more on my G2. Keep in mind that the nullifier takes much longer than a normal wipe as it erases everything. Expect approx 10 minutes for a single pass and approx 20 mins for a double. Also remember the known issue with the process bar not moving, and expect to wait. Don't turn off your phone or reboot without installing a ROM. Also make sure you have enough battery or that your device is plugged in before starting.
This is to remind me how, so I don't have to search for it.
adb logcat -v long *:W*:E*:F > your-errors.txt

Installing a new ROM on your G2/DZ soon? Check out the
AIO wipe tool for G2/DZ before you install.

Just for clarification, the boot concern is only if you wipe /boot then power down. It's a 'duh!' thing, but it still happens or people start to run it and fall asleep and wake up with a brick.
And to reiterate regarding the progress bar, Irvine get at least a log from a nullification I can put in even a semi-accurate progress bar.

I'm interested in sending you logs to help with getting the progress bar added in. How would I go about that?

I still need one from the DZ, partition sizes are different. Dragon-son gave me a log for the G2 last night. I am very busy until the weekend, so my progress on it will be slow unless my evening work is slow.

Edit: Actually, I just realized that I need a dual-wipe log as well. You can just attach it here. The way to get it is simply run a dual wipe then when it finishes hit "save log" then finish.

Edit 2: Just put together a tester for single wipe with progress bar, waiting for dragon-son to test and get back to me.

Edit 3: just pm'ed it to tarroyo as well.

Version with the progress bar is fairly accurate, it's not 100% accurate, but it's at least moving. Sent log for dual wipe and log for single wipe with progress bar over to Волк for review.
This is to remind me how, so I don't have to search for it.
adb logcat -v long *:W*:E*:F > your-errors.txt
