LXDE spin rollback?

Hi, I’m running f37 in a LXDE/Openbox spin. I used Stacer to clean some things and it deleted my application cache and some settings with it. I didn’t want to redo all of my settings. I could boot into the prior kernel with all of my settings intact but I couldn’t run the permanent rollback command. I didn’t have rpm-ostree so I installed it but after, it wouldn’t run the command. I think it’s because of the spin I’m using. Does anyone know how I could make it work? I ended up deleting the kernel I didn’t want and everything is fine now. Just curious. Thanks.
