Hello,

I just wanted to announce a little app I wrote in response to a request over here.

In a nutshell it just goes through your device, checks against a list of software in a config file, and lets you check off the ones you'd like to uninstall. Then it removes those apps from your file system and the registry.

This is my first windows mobile app. It's fairly simple, but if anyone finds any bugs, please let me know.

Right now there is only a config file for the HTC Tilt 2. If anyone would like to write a config file for other devices (Rhodium or not), I've included documentation on how to do so, and I'd be happy to help.

You can grab the Tilt 2 version of Crud Scraper here.

So essentially this is an uninstaller that gets rid of everything left by an app?

Love the icon

I ran it after having removed 90% of what it scrapes, and it worked like a charm. Thanks, great utility!

That's right. It can either uninstall an app, or finish removing what's left of an app that was not properly uninstalled.

I didn't even realize the files could be hosted here as a normal user. I've just edited the main post of this thread to include the file you'll need.

Bear in mind that it's not a cab though. It's a zip file containing an exe and a config file for the Tilt 2. Just save those to the same folder on your device, run the exe, and the rest is self explanatory.

If you want me to cab it for you just ask cause it'll take me 2 seconds...
