- Don't spam ROM development threads about issues caused by this script.
- Always report problems in this thread and we will most likely help you as fast as we can.
- Please always respect our work and be friendly and helpful to other members in this thread.



How to report a problem:

- Flash ROMCleaner_vX.X.zip in recovery
- In main menu and press "Log Collection".
- When done, reboot the device from "Advanced Power Menu".
- In "/external or internal sdcard/ROMCleaner" you will find RC_LogCollection.*.tar. Please upload this file together with a description of your problem.
With this log we can in - most cases - solve your problem within minutes!

If you ignore this simple instruction, you will most likely get no help from us!






Code:
ROM Cleaner v2.1 FINAL 2 :p - 2013-03-10

   -Common
    *Corrected the code so it will locate the correct sdcard path properly.
     Now ROM Cleaner will use /external_sd, external_sdcard or /scard as source
     External SDCARD will have first priority! 
     Thanks to everyone who helped us with testing especially blueacidic!
     If no external sdcard can be found, internal sdcard will be used.
    *Slimmed zip size a bit.
     Removed unused scripts and functions
     Removed reboot/exit animation
    *Plus more changes, (merged from S3 v3.0 FINAL)

   -Backup Tool
    *Corrected "Backup Tool" on internal sdcard
    *Added more logging code:
     List all apps in /data/app before backup and after backup in backup dir

   -Additional Scripts Menu
    *If you try to run Settings Restorer before first boot you will get a warning
     Same is with "Run all scripts in one GO!"

   -Updated all launchers

_______________________________________________________________________________


ROM Cleaner v2.0 FINAL - 2013-01-26

   -Aroma
    *AROMA will now be able to find your external sdcard!
     If no external sdcard is mounted, internal sdcard will be used instead.
    *External sdcard will have first priority. Internal sdcard will only be used if there is no other options.
    *ClockWorkMod Recovery and TWRP Recovery should now be supported. 

   -ROM Cleaner
    *Added more safe to remove apps
    *Commented some apps so they won't get removed by default.
      Please remember I don't have this device so it's really hard to make the optimal app removal txt for you.
    *Removed "test" app removal from ROMCleaner.txt. Now the script will read from the log instead and give you a status message.
    *Added more logging functions to the updater-script (boring for you useful for us :D )

   -Updated all launchers

_______________________________________________________________________________


ROM Cleaner v1.2 - 2012-12-15

   -ROM Cleaner
    *Added more safe to remove apps
    *Corrected typo in odex cleaner script.
    *Changed secondary launcher apk names in the zip so it will be easier for you to update them if needed

   -Additional Scripts Menu
    *If you try to run Settings Restorer before first boot you will get a warning

   -Updated launchers
    *APEX Launcher v1.3.2 > v1.3.5

    *NOVA Launcher v1.3.1 > v1.3.2
    *Holo Launcher HD v1.0.4 > v1.0.6

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!


Video review by TheSmokingAndroid


Main Menu
In our main menu you will find:

* Backup Tool
* ROM Cleaner
--- ROM Cleaner
--- 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
-*- TocuhWiz launcher settings (and 3rd party widgets)
-*- 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 "ROM Cleaner" script, press Next
-*- 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
* Setup Wizard Remover > This script will remove the Setup Wizard
* Apps & Mods Installer > This is a batch install script. Apps, mods, files in /extSDcard/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
* 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"
--- 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 extSDcard. The file must be located in "/internal or external sdcard/ROMCleaner" folder.

Now ROM Cleaner script will always read that file!

Easy?
Yes? Good because this is and should be easy

I ran twice in order to understand all of its features. I love the backup tool with third party applications. ..due to my tons of widget. ..and home screen settings. Actually I do not have any bloatware so the cleaner runs and doesn't clean anything of course, but it is fully customizable and when I will Flash next rom I will use your cleaner for sure.
It is very fast!

Thanks for your feedback!

The more you understand about it, the more you will like it
Because we really put a lot of stuff in there that are very useful as long you use it as we designed it to be used.

The cleaner part takes only 1sec no matter if you remove 1 app or 300 apps

BTW, did you look at the video review?
