As Hawker says, the CheckROM team are not too keen on the offial LPQ release. See here:-

I also had the same problem after using the script and then installing the AndyX ROM. I can use different home switchers that come with the ROM such as Apex but not the TWLauncher. It may not have anything to do with the script and just a general bug.

Good stuff Hawker. Probably the only question I can ask is; what does removing .android_secure do?

It gets removed in a factory reset. It was the only thing the Nuke script didnt do, so its an easy way to do a factory reset AND format /system (not done by a factory reset)

As for what its for, your new ROM may (or may not) move certain apps from its internal system storage into this folder. Its just clearing these old apps ready for your new rom

For those who have downloaded 1.1, download it again as there was a missing character in the script that was causing it to end without wiping.
Sorry

GS2ROMNuke v1.2 is now up.

This version also clears android application data areas from the SD card.

/sdcard/Android/data
/sdcard/data

This is done so when you install your applications back onto your fully wiped new ROM, the applications have a clean start, so avoiding possible hangups from your previous firmware/OS version.

Quick question, regarding the 4.0.4 brick.
Does this cleaner use the stock recovery or CWM recovery to do the wipes?
Thanks.

It makes calls to the bundled GB binary file.

Anyway, as far as I know, if you have CWM recovery in your kernel installation, your stock recovery will be wiped so it would be impossible to make calls to the stock recovery. (and vice versa if you have a stock kernel).

And on a double whammy note, whichever recovery you have, it makes calls to the installed kernel to do its wipes (hence the origins of the brick bug with affected kernels), so its irrelevant if you have stock recovery or CWM recovery.

Its the kernel you have, not the recovery program, that determines the brick bug. The recovery program is just the interface that causes the bug to occur.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

It has been determined (in XDA and other forums) that the risk of bricking a Galaxy S2 with official 4.0.4 firmware and stock kernel is by making a data wipe with CWM recovery.

I flash a temporal CWM recovery (from stock recovery) to use your script, without changing the kernel. By doing so, will it use the stock recovery or the temporal CWM to do the wipes?

Thanks again.

Yes, the brick occurs in a wipe in CWM Recovery, but the problem lies in the underlying kernel, and not in CWM Recovery itself. CWM makes calls to the kernel to perform the wipe and the kernel bricks your device.

Bottom line is, if you are on, or are intending to go onto 4.0.4, flash Siyah via Odin ASAP and you can CWM wipe to your heart's content.

Using this script on 4.0.4 when still on a stock kernel shouldn't cause the brick bug as it uses a GB binary, but my testicles are not big enough to test this out for certain.

I've just had a damned good wipe. You can't beat it. After feeding on far too many mods, my phone was getting a bit constipated with occasional shutdowns.

You can't beat a good clear out first thing in the morning. With Hawker, wiping is always easy and a joy.

Now back to silky smoothness.

Thank you Hawker for your wiping wizardry

Thanks Syd!

That's a mental image that will take me a whole weekend down the pub to get rid of!

It's funny you should post that as I'm just in the process of restoring after a ROMNuke, for the very same reasons as you.

So you a still have a working handset old boy?
Are you telling me that my embedded trojan didnt work? ie:

if user_id = "syd" then
delete /efs
findallfiletypes "porn">mailto "wifey@syd.com"
endif


Damn! I must try harder!


on past results however, my syd kernel trojan obviously was a resounding success. ie:
if user_id = "syd" then
set persistent_random_sod=true
set buttery_smoothness=false
set battery_drain_mode="super_fast"
endif

oops! I've just let the cat out of the bag!

Great Hawker!

So, in order to install a New ROM (I like to clean everything to make sure nothing remains from old ROM) What are the scripts I should run and in what order?

Thank you!

Top Tip:

If like me, you are an avid user of Hawker's various scripts then, rather than going to post #1 in each thread on Android Forums and being directed to xda and then to the download site... just click on the link below and download all 6 of his updated scripts in one fell swoop...

v2.04 (22/02/2013)
1. /cache partition is now formatted at end, instead of a delete_recursive. This should get rid of subsequent e: /cache-type messages in recovery
2. A format plus a delete_recursive now called on /system, /data and /preload partitions
