v3.1.3.2(369) is now the latest stable version.

I improved thread syncronization through more fine-grained locking (i.e. syncronizing methods vs small blocks on different objects).
This should slightly improve general performance when doing multiple things at once in SD Maid, but most notably reduce the lag in QuickAccess when starting/canceling operations.
As usual, databases and translations have also been updated.

Rollout is currently at 1% either wait or download it below.

v3.1.3.0 (367) is now the latest stable version and is currently replacing v3.1.2.6 (363).

Notable changes:
* Added "/data/log_other_mode/" to the "/data/log" filter
* Fixed an issue with the CorpseFinder on Huawei devices which interferred with Huawei's internal way of "uninstalling" (more like deactivating) system applications.
* I removed the previous self-made analytics system in favor of the open-source framework Piwik (piwik.org), also see http://sdmaid.darken.eu/privacy
* Crash reporting (ACRA) was updated to the latest build
* Tracking of an issue with external-sdcard access on unrooted 5.0+ devices was added (see http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=59987770&postcount=2073)
* Fixed another batch of Gingerbread related UI issues (hopefully the last).

Beta discussions:
* v3.1.2.7 https://plus.google.com/116634499773478773276/posts/PPWEw4E8fd6
* v3.1.2.8 https://plus.google.com/116634499773478773276/posts/XytAmcCreCB
* v3.1.2.9 https://plus.google.com/116634499773478773276/posts/Z7VD8jSu8rA
* v3.1.3.0 is a small hotfix update.

Just updated RootValidator to v2.0.1.

Fixed crashes i got through crashlytics and updated all libraries to their latest version (v22).

I previously mentioned that I was contemplating to open source the app, and I did that now.

You can find a direct download to the latest apks on github.

For the curious i wanted to offer some numbers.
About 20k people have RootValidator 2.0+ installed and ~450 people use it per day. The ads get about 11k impression per week with ~300 clicks which equates to ~12€ per week.
rootvalidator - Small Android app that checks the root state of your device.

I'm looking for people with a LG G3 on Android 5.0+.

You need to have an external sdcard that affected by the write protection from Android 4.4+. If you have root don't give SD Maid root, and if you did the sdcard fix, undo that.

Now if you start a tool in SD Maid it should open a dialog instructing you to give SD Maid access to your external sdcard. Doing that should turn the orange box to green and allow SD Maid to proceed.

Now I'm looking for people where the orange box does not turn green.

+Halry Smith  The choice is there, on the surface everything looks well, but then it does working because of the described issue with the UUID.

Weekend polish v3.1.3.1(368).

I replaced some rather broad thread syncronization with more fine-grained locking (i.e. syncronizing methods vs small blocks on different objects).
This should slightly improve general performance when doing multiple things at once in SD Maid, but most notably reduce (fix?) the lag in QuickAccess when starting/canceling operations.
Thanks to Julian(jkccl9) for helping me debug this.

This can go production, but i might do another update to pull latest languages.

A warm welcome for beta v3.1.2.7(364).

http://sdmaid.darken.eu/download
http://sdmaid.darken.eu/changelogbeta

Notable changes:
The Systemcleaners "/data/log" filter now also targets "/data/log_other_mode". This at least affects "Cubot" devices but possibly more. It's basically the same thing as /data/log, not sure why they had to diverge here.

I'm still investigating a problem where people without root can't gain external sdcard access on 5.0+. Normally this is possible via the storage access framework. Under some circumstances though the external sdcard doesn't provide the system with a UUID (or the system can't read it). The system seems to randomly name the sdcards, while normally it's name is the UUID. Guessing isn't really a good solution to this, but currently it looks like it might not be SD Maids fault, but an sdcard issue. It's an issue important issue that needs to be understood. This version will send a crash report (without crashing) if an sdcard has no UUID, such that I can get an Overview if it's a device specific issue or something broader. So far seen on the LG G3. I suspect it's not device related, but sdcard related.

I've already talked about it sometime ago, my self-made statistics system was cute and simple, but just not up to the task. While i had data i wanted to see, e.g. Android versions or root types, i couldn't get the data out of the database in a meaningful way or timely fashion (< a few hours) :(. This update removes the last traces of the old system and introduces Piwik (piwik.org) as replacement.

I researched a lot of analytics systems and while the most popular certainly seems to be Google Analytics, I've opted for Piwik because it's open-source and I can host it on my own server (i.e. full control).
I hope to use the provided information for focusing my development efforts (e.g. SD Maid v4). It will tell me things like Android versions, root-state, what the most/least used features are, what devices, landscape/portrait etc.

Only anonymous device information is collected and all data is only used to improve SD Maid. Nothing is sold or otherwise misappropriated. I've updated the privacy document to reflect this: http://sdmaid.darken.eu/privacy/
You can now also opt-out through the settings. I kindly ask you not to, just like with crash-reporting, but hey it's your choice :). I'll probably post some interesting stats in 1-2 month for the curious (I always like it when other apps/websites post such stats).

Just as it has always been, SD Maid still works fine without internet, so restricting it's access or having no signal has no adverse effect.

This is a pure BETA as there will be at least one more update for updating translations before anything goes into production.

Exchanging the stats system was also my last big milestone before SD Maid v4 so I can now start dreaming about Material Design :). Don't expect an ETA, it's done when it's done, but I'll try to start early with beta versions.

The beta is looking fine, no issues that are of any concern. New beta coming soon with some polishing.

Sadly for me: The idea to try to improve SD Maids memory consumption by tracking "low memory" events proved to be fruitless, the statistics gathered are just chaotic and offer no insight. That's a stat I'll remove with the next update.
Idea came from this:
http://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/ComponentCallbacks2.html#onTrimMemory%28int%29

Was worth a try though.
SD Maid v4 will make use of this in other ways by evicting certain caches if possible (Preview Images).

Small updates for everyone!
2048 Myo Edition was just updated to v1.1.0.

Changes:
- The screen now stays on when playing with a Myo
- I recolored the tiles and added new distinct ones. The highest one is now 524288 (2^19). (You can tap the title to play in endless mode)
- Updated to MyoSDK 0.10
- Updated all used libraries and switch to the new modular Google Play services framework, which reduced APK size by ~30%.

You can find a direct apk download on GitHub:

SD Maid v3.1.2.6 (363) further moves us towards v3 becoming a legacy version and starting development of v4.

Some details:
Most importantly, SD Maid wasn't drinking coffee on some 5.0/5.1 devices, that's fixed now.

A few fixes for more GB bugs thanks to killoid@XDA. It's important we fix any remaining issues that are only on 2.3 or 4.0 as I don't want to go screw around with the old UI after diving into MaterialDesign for v4.

I've migrated the sdmaid<>myserver communication to what v4 will use. Instead of using it for statistics, it is now only used to check for updates. This means I reduced what information gets send as I only need a small subset to be able to tell whether there is an update available for you.
The statistics collection will be moved to Piwik with a future update where I have been contributing to it's Android SDK for the last week. I'll make a longer post about this when the update that introduces it is ready. This is also the last big milestone for me before I can start with v4.

I also added code that allows a user to manually update SD Maids internal databases for hidden cache and clutter. For now this is unnecessary as I plan to update the databases for some time, but just in case, it's in there now.

Stability wise I consider this a release canidate. We will see whether it goes into production.
