    Talking [TOOL] - CleanTOOL 2.1 - 12/11 - The Relentless Pursuit of Clean!

    Welcome to CleanTOOL! This is a quick little script I whipped up to clean up all the bloat on the Rezound. The script uses temp root to disable most bloat. Bloat will NOT come back on a reboot! They are gone until hard reset you enable them again.

    Adobe Reader, lock Buster, NFL, Golf, Kindle, Slacker, HTC Set Up, Polaris Office, App Sharing, FaceBook, Flicker, NFS, MY Verizon, VCast Music, VCast Video, Video Surf, VZ Nav, Back Up Assistance, Scan, Twitter, Footprints, FriendStream, Mobile Instant Messenger, Tasks, Usage Monitor, Watch, Printer.

    New in this version
    Added: Options to disable / enable Sense (Make sure you install an alternate launcher first!)
    Added: Options to install / uninstall Ad-Blocking Host File
    Removed: Reboot to Boot Loader
    Changed: Color to Verizon Red!

    Instructions:
    • Install HTC USB Sync Drivers if not already installed
    • Download package from download link and extract to your desktop
    • Enable USB Debugging on Phone
    • Connect Device to PC in Charge Only Mode
    • Run "CleanTOOL 2.1"
    • Enjoy bloat free goodness!

    How to mod the script to your satisfaction...

    Not everyone considers the same thing Bloat... I consider everything I listed above as bloat. If you want to modify the script to not remove some of the apps then here is what you do...

    Instead of running the CleanTOOL Batch file... Open it in notepad and find this section at about the 1/2 way to 2/3s point...

    @echo Temp Rooted! Now about to clean it up!
    @pause
    @Echo OFF
    @adb shell pm disable com.adobe.reader
    @adb shell pm disable com.blockbuster.app.htc
    @adb shell pm disable com.mobitv.client.nfl2010
    @adb shell pm disable com.gameloft.android.Verizon.GloftLGolf2.lgolf2
    @adb shell pm disable com.amazon.kindle
    @adb shell pm disable com.slacker.radio
    @adb shell pm disable com.htc.android.htcsetupwizard
    @adb shell pm disable com.infraware.docmaster
    @adb shell pm disable com.htc.appsharing
    @adb shell pm disable com.facebook.katana
    @adb shell pm disable com.htc.socialnetwork.flickr
    @adb shell pm disable com.ea.nfshp
    @adb shell pm disable com.vzw.hss.myverizon
    @adb shell pm disable com.pv.android.verizon.mod
    @adb shell pm disable com.pv.android.verizon.avod
    @adb shell pm disable com.videosurf.activity
    @adb shell pm disable com.vznavigator.ADR6425LVW
    @adb shell pm disable com.htc.VzWBackupAssistantClient
    @adb shell pm disable com.mtag.scan
    echo Cleaned!
    echo Visit for all your Android ROM Needs!
    Pause
    This is where all the disabling is done. Simply delete any line that you want to keep on the phone. Save file and then run it. Below is the actual app name to make it easy.


    Legend
    Adobe Reader: com.adobe.reader
    Block Buster: com.blockbuster.app.htc
    NFL: com.mobitv.client.nfl2010
    Golf: com.gameloft.android.Verizon.GloftLGolf2.lgolf2
    Kindle: com.amazon.kindle
    Slacker: com.slacker.radio
    HTC Set Up: com.htc.android.htcsetupwizard
    Polaris Office: com.infraware.docmaster
    App Sharing: com.htc.appsharing
    FaceBook: com.facebook.katana
    Flicker: com.htc.socialnetwork.flickr
    NFS: com.ea.nfshp
    MY Verizon: com.vzw.hss.myverizon
    VCast Music: com.pv.android.verizon.mod
    VCast Video: com.pv.android.verizon.avod
    Video Surf: com.videosurf.activity
    VZ Nav: com.vznavigator.ADR6425LVW
    Back Up Assistance: com.htc.VzWBackupAssistantClient
    Scan: com.mtag.scan
    Conversely, if you want to enable something that you prior disabled simple send the enable command instead of the disable command like this:

    @adb shell pm enable com.facebook.katana
    Sending that line will enable Facebook. The same method for any thing else.

    Thanks man, it worked. They were gone (and more importantly not running) after a reboot.

    I am on a Windows machine, and it took quite a bit of trial and error of different things before it would actually work, but in the end, it did.

    Update: I can also confirm that the enabling works. I had forgotten to remove the NFL app from the list before disabling all, and had to re-enable it. It works.

    Very cool man.

    I am about to update the app because I forgot that not everyone has SDK installed. Sometimes you just take things for granted, ya know?

    Ver 1.1 will no longer require ADB in path... hehehe

    Version 1.1 Now Available!

    Changes in this version
    • Added twitter to the kill list (Didn't see it the first time)
    • Moved ADB to root of folder for easier use by those without the SDK


    If you had problems with "Command not found" then this should resolve that.

    Also updated prerequisites to include the installation of HTC Sync drivers.

    If you have any kill list suggestion then by all means post 'em up!

    Have fun and keep it Clean!

    This sounds great. Just one question.
    If an OTA update comes our way, I can re-enable these apps so that the OTA will work, correct?
    My only rooting experience was with the OG Droid, and I got rid of pretty much all bloat, but was unable to do OTA updates after Froyo. I know you said I can re-enable with a hard reset, but that means the hardware reset itself, not a factory reset done through the settings menu, right?

    This worked well.

    Dovahkiin, if you're concerned about any future updates, just run the tool again but change all the "disable" to "enable" and that should bring you back to where you were before using the tool.

    Ah, I didn't know I was able to just enable the bloat again. Thanks for the answer.

    Sure, but I dont have one. If you can send me a link to a stock ROM I should be able to whip up something similiar.

    AS a mattery of fact, this tool should work on the X2 but I cant say for sure because I dont have one.

    You disabled office.

    Edit: Sorry that was terse.. You disabled office and now need to change this line:

    @adb shell pm disable com.infraware.docmaster

    to this:

    @adb shell pm enable com.infraware.docmaster

    Can you get ADB on a mac? If so then yes for sure we can get it to work. I dont have a Mac and I dont know much about 'em...

    I know we can get it to work in Linux. If you can boot Ubuntu from CD than I might work a linux script for you...

    How about this?

    You should only need to adjust the script a little. Remove the @'s .exe's and change the \ to / and REM to #. I'll work up a port on Linux and post it. Should work for the Mac as well

    I just uploaded a linux version to Scott for his approval. If he signs off on it I'm sure he'll update the official download. If you want to try it I can send it to you off the books.
