Storage [TOOL][WIN][16 APR 2014] Android App Remover v2.1 [Sense 5]

I'm proudly presenting you...

Android App Remover by Omar_Bazaraa



About the tool
You are an Android developer?
You remove the same certain apps and files each time you re-base your ROM on a newer version?
Or when you release a new update for your ROM?

This tool will certainly help you.
It is a simple Windows tool that will help you in removing and deleting unwanted apps and cleaning the ROM from useless stuff.
It will do all the work automatically in only one second!

This tool is primarily built for Sense 5.
It should also work on previous versions of Sense and it should even work on any other Android ROM, but first you must make sure that the directories of apps in resource folder inside the tool's main folder are compatible with the same apps of your ROM.

If you are a normal user and want to clean your ROM, the best choice for you is Aroma ROM Cleaner by @Patrics83.
How the tool works
This is a very simple tool, all you need to do is to extract your ROM.zip then enter the directory of the root folder of your ROM (system folder) then check the apps you want to remove then press Delete button, finally zip your ROM again.
Deleting custom apps & files
This tool offers a good feature that allows you to remove any app or file that is not found in the list, to set up your custom apps just go to resource\custom inside the tool's main folder and open one of the sixteen text files and add the directory of your unwanted app.

Example:
I want to remove Face Unlock which is not supported by the tool, all I need to do is to open resource\custom\custom1.txt and add these lines:
Code:
\app\FaceLock.apk
\lib\libfacelock_jni.so
\vendor\pittpatt
Make sure that:
Lines must begin with Backslash '\'.
You must not forget to write the extension of the file.
Apps or folders must be separated only by New-line.

The tool offers sixteen custom apps, but if you need more you can combine more than one app in each custom text file, as it can handle unlimited number of lines.

One of the reasons of making this tool is to return you a favor for all your great works.
Because you sometimes forget to remove some lib files from your ROM.
In ARHD 31.x you forget to remove (libchromeview.so - libgoggles_clientvision.so - libgoogle_recognizer_jni.so) and some other files.
So I hope that this tool will help you.

Hello. What is the difference between this and ROM Cleaner, besides that you run this tool on your pc before copying the rom to SD card and that you flash the ROM Cleaner after the rom?

You are right.
ROM Cleaner is an Aroma script that will remove apps after installing the ROM.
But my tool is a Windows program for developer or for anyone who want to remove apps before installing the ROM.
