Here is another guide on how to use Rom Cleaner to remove Android bloatware. Without doubt the best Bloatware remover
And we are back after commercial!
Only one big difference, Rom Cleaner is one full automatic cleaner and nobloat is application where you do everything manually...
Application is not bad but not showing all of applications, can be better.

Sorry for the delay, my notebook is dead and script is about 80% or 90% finished.
I'll post now changes what i have made until now.

P.S. This version is for Sense 7

Sorry for the question, but I'm a little confused. Is this the file I've to download if I want to clean a Sense 7 Rom like LeeDroid 7.4.1?

Any experience in using RC on Android N?
I'm pretty sure it won't work without lots of modifications in both scripts and *_user.txt

On the other hand, you could always flash it and see if there's any errors on the welcome screen.
But if you do give it a try, and get into trouble I might not be able to help you at all. I'm running stock without root now days ?

    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)
    --- ROM Cleaner (CM-AOSP)
    --- 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
    -*- 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", "NO-Sense" or "CM-AOSP" script, press Next
    -*- "NO-Sense" users will get a launcher menu and the option to use HTC lockscreen or AOSP lockscreen
    -*- "CM-AOSP" users will get a launcher menu
    -*- 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
    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:
    [COLOR=red]#[/COLOR]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!
    Yes? Good because this is and should be easy ;)
