  • Improved: Screen search. SD Maid should no longer endlessly retry on some apps. To determine whether SD Maid is on the right screen, both the launcher app name and the application name is now checked. Previous we only checked the app name, but this differs for some apps from the launcher name (e.g. Duo/Meet).

SD Maid v5.4.1 29.07.2022

Core

  • Improved: Translations.
  • Improved: Clutter database.

Explorer

  • Changed: Decreased timeout check when installing split APKs.
  • Fixed: Sometimes not entering the correct path when going from another tool (e.g. AppControl export) to the Explorer.
  • Fixed: Crash on Android <=9 when trying to report clutter.

AppControl

  • Added: Support for checking indirect internet access, i.e. one app has internet access, another one does not, but both share the same user ID.
  • Added: Search support for sharedUserId.
  • Added: App details now show which apps share a user ID.
  • Improved: Tag coloring.
  • Changed: System apps are always assumed to have internet access.
  • Fixed: Crash when entering app details.

AppCleaner

  • Fixed: Random crash on some ROMs when running via accessibility service and encountering weird nodes.

SD Maid v5.4.0 12.07.2022

Core

  • Improved: Translations.
  • Improved: Clutter database.

Explorer

  • Added: Support for installing split APKs. Works with the APK export format that SD Maid produces, but should also work with any export in the same format. You need to click and press "install apk" on the <IDENTIFIER>-base.apk and the other files need to be named <IDENTIFIER>-otherlabels.apk. SD Maid will recognize the other APK parts by their common prefix (<IDENTIFIER>).

AppControl

  • Removed: BOOT tag from list view. You can still filter for it. See here why the BOOT tag is not what you think it is: https://github.com/d4rken/sdmaid-public/wiki/AppControl#receiver-manager-autostart
  • Added: Add a new No internet permission tag. Apps without internet permission (android.permission.INTERNET) are now highlighted and can be filtered for. The idea is that this highlights apps with good privacy/no tracking (see discussion in #5591).

CorpseFinder

  • Fixed: Corpse filename not matching actual file. Filenames on public storage are case-insensitive. SD Maid would match MiBand but display it as miband as the clutter marker is called miband and for the sdcard root, SD Maid does a reverse lookup (load marker, check if exists) which returns miband.exists() == true due to case-insensitivity even though the folder is called MiBand. This is not problematic for deletion, but for exclusions. If you now create an exclusion from the CorpseFinder UI for miband it won't match MiBand.
  • Changed: CorpseFinder (or global) exclusion will now use case-insensitive matching for files on the sdcard (not necessary to fix the above issue, but a sane change nonetheless). This currently only applies to the CorpseFinder tool.

Duplicates

  • Added: TWRP/backup to default exclusions (#5604).

AppCleaner

  • Improved: ROM detection for Iode custom ROMs that are based on lineageOS.
  • Improved: Default exclusions for apps that can't be cleared (#5583).

SD Maid v5.3.23 25.05.2022

Core

  • Improved: Translations.

SystemCleaner

  • Fixed: Windows filter case sensitivity.

Core

  • Improved: Clutter database (Huawei specific).

SD Maid v5.3.21 15.05.2022

Core

  • Improved: Translations.
  • Improved: Clutter database.

AppCleaner

  • Improved: Filter for advertisement files.
  • Improved: Filter for debug files.
  • Improved: Accessibility service compatibility with different ROMs (OnePlus, Realme, Huawei).

SD Maid v5.3.20 01.05.2022

Core

  • Improved: Translations.
  • Improved: Clutter database.

AppCleaner

  • Improved: Previously SD Maid relied on a lot of hardcoded values to determine what SD Maid needs to click when using the AppCleaner accessibility service option. Now SD Maid will attempt to read the correct labels from the system settings APK directly and only use the previous way as fallback. This allows SD Maid to automatically support all languages for a ROM if support is added. Finding the right strings is based on the string IDs. These may differ between ROMs. I could only confirm AOSP/Pixel and Samsung ROMs. If v5.3.20 loops on your ROM, but v5.3.19 didn't: Make an issue ticket and upload your ROMs system settings APK, so I can find the right string IDs, or you do that and just tell me the IDs ;).

Core

  • Added: Easter egg.
  • Changed: Increasd IAP grace period.

SD Maid v5.3.16 27.03.2022

Core

  • Fixed: UI issues where snackbars and dialogs would reappear after pausing/resuming SD Maid.

AppCleaner

  • Improved: Bugreporting filter.
  • Improved: Hidden chaches filter on MIUI ROMs.
  • Improved: ACS retry mechanism. Some ROMs (e.g. Huawei) need a short delay to calculate the values displayed in an app's settings page. If SD Maid reads the page too quickly, the items we are looking for at not found on screen. So now if SD Maid sees an ellispsis characters and the initial check failed, a short delay is added before the next try (#5401).
  • Improved: ACS support for Ukranian.

  • Changed: Instead access of private app data on rooted device with Android 11+. Instead of working with /data_mirror for which SD Maid still has incomplete support, SD Maid will now use Magisk's --mount-master to restore pre Android 11 behavior with regards to accessing /data/data.

AppCleaner

  • Improved: ACS matching on Samsung ROMs.

  • Fixed: Api level check. Some devices where crashing due to supplying inconsistent version information (faking higher Android versions).
  • Fixed: Read check for single files/directories when using SAF mode. It always returned exists=true, afaict it only affected copy/move within the explorer.

Explorer

  • Fixed: Crash when trying to copy/move some files that require SAF mode.

AppCleaner

  • Improved: ACS matching on Android 12 for pl.

SD Maid v5.3.8 29.11.2021

Core

  • Improved: Translations.

  • Fixed: Crash on faulty ROMs, where an API is not available despite the Android version being high enough.
  • Fixed: Crash when deleting files and the storage state changes, after search but before deletion, e.g. storage being mounted/unmounted/ejecting. We'll now just skip such a file, results in most tools correctly refect the deletion failure, as X items remaining/skipped.
