    *Especially for our Sense 3.x users:
     If you flash ROM Cleaner after first boot.
     Then you will get a warning message and the option to clear HTC Sense data.
	
    *Especially for our Sense 4.x users:
     If you flash ROM Cleaner after first boot.
     ROM Cleaner will execute a script and reload your HTC widgets.
     Normally you would have to clear HTC Sense data! But not anymore since we 
     discovered how to reload the widgets instead ;)

    *Especially for our Sense 4.x users:
    *Thanks to itandy and his "Lockscreen Shortcuts App"

ROM Cleaner v5.0 r3 - 2012-08-06

Corrected missing code for app restore from ../FirstBoot/data/app
Thanks Pjay12 for the heads up

And some other minor changes to the updater-script

_______________________________________________________________________________________________


ROM Cleaner v5.0 r2 - 2012-08-03

-All scripts packed in unique AROMA Installer
-Almost all scripts are rewritten to work better in a AROMA environment

-Backup Tool
 * All backups are now stored in /sdcard/ROMCleaner/Backup
   That means "FirstBoot" folder is empty unless you add apps manually.

-New in ROM Cleaner:
 * You can decide if you want to restore your apps during ROM Cleaner install.
 * You can also decide if you want to install files located in "FirstBoot" folder.
 * And of course we added a "No Cleaning" option as well which will 
   let you restore apps and install files like normal!
 
-App restore changes:
 * When you choose to restore your apps a script will check if you use one of
   the supported ROMs. If you use any of the listed ROMs below all pre-installed
   apps will be removed before all other apps are copied to your /data/app.
   This is to prevent old/double apps from being installed.
   
   Supported ROMs at the moment:
   * Android Revolution HD
   * ER3BUS XL
   
   more to come...please let us know what ROMs we should add...

-Many improvements to the updater-script. ROM Cleaner is much faster now!
-Removed /etc folder (/system/etc is still left)

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!
* Log 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
-*- Start ROM Cleaner AROMA and pick "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


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

Hi all,

Just want to give some feedback to the dev's and users how I'm using these scriptfiles. Maybe it can be usefull for some ppl to show it's not difficult at all to gain a lot of time during Rom installation taking almost no effort at all. If I can do it, everyone can So what I wanted to do after I read the manual in OP by DUDE360 was:

- Backup apps that I'm using at the moment;
- Flash Rom;
- Remove most of the Sense stuff accept (weather)lockscreen;
- Auto-install all backuped files;
- Apply my mods (All-in-One, CRT, Quick settings XL, UOT, boot- and downanimation and OC daemon settings automatically;

I can tell you that all of the above worked out perfectly!!!!

So here's what I did flasing a new ROM (and will be doing in the future, for sure). In this post I use the same numbers as I do on my SD-card so I can recall what I did, or do a fast re-install.


Preparation:
Before I went flashing I made sure my mods were added to the SD-Card in /SDCard/Romcleaner/secondboot/ in exact the same format as the are in the mod-zips.
Example: In AIO mod there's a dir: /system/media/weather. Copy it to /sdcard/ROMCLeaner/secondboot/system/media/weather. I opened two windows and copied (extracted) everything. Just like that. Did this with all mods leaving out the META-INF dirs.
If you use a more than om mods make sure you add them to your SD-Card in exact the same order as you flash them normally and let the new files overwrite the existing ones. It's no guarantee it will work, but it is the safest way to get it fully working. It works for me, using all of the mods mentioned above (and even more right now)

Actual Flashing order:
00 Flashed: Folder_Creator.zip only the first time to make sure all directories are there where they belong;
01 Flashed: Backup_Apps_to_SDCARD.zip (all insatlled apps in backup dir);
02 Flashed: Superwipe.zip (automatic reboot into recovery);
03 Flashed: ROM (ARHD in this case);
04 Flashed: Rom_Cleaner_v2.2.zip (did no modifications to it. Lockscreen is kept by the satandard script) It reboots itself in a normal way (not into recovery that is);
05 Skip the HTC Setup Wizard for the biggest part - I only do the Wifi setup.
06 Reboot into recovery;
07 Flashed: HtcSetupWizard_Remover_v4.0.zip
08 Flashed: Mods_and_App_Installer_v1.2.zip

Now I know, if I want to keep Sense (I'm not a Sense hater, lol), I can always use the "auto-install" option flashing a new rom by skipping step 04, 05 and 07....

I'm now flashing and installing (almost 200 apps) and do a full setup of my phone in Less than 25 minutes after a full wipe!!!!!


PS Sorry for the long post, just hope it's an addition on the manual in OP and useful for some....

Cheers
