Application was fixed, checked and reuploaded.

Do not use Aliendalvik Cleanup by Schturman on U11. If you have it installed - remove it immediately. Using it on U11 will remove all your data from home partition and you will loose all data stored in phone memory.

Application already removed from Openrepos and will not appear anymore.

You were warned!

Unless it is deliberate, presumably one of the (sub) directories being removed is actually a symlink?

@cmacq2 not a symlinks, it's mounts.

I put my Jolla into reboot loop using that. I got it fixed using factory reset.

Some explanation might be appropriate, what was wrong in your app, what changed in U11 ?

  1. Changed only one command, instead: rm -rf /opt/alien/* now it: rm -rf /opt/alien/system/* Becaue u11 added some diff folders to alien folder, also /home mounted here.
  2. Added checking into the script itself. Now user can use it only on current system version. After next sys update, app will send you notification about update wgen you will try to open app.
  3. Package installation can done only on current system version, Same for the next updates.
