    Can someone give a writeup of how to write an update.zip?

    There are several things that I always do to my phone when I install new things.

    - Install Framework with Round Battery
    - Change the GMail notification icon
    - Skin the Genie and Power Strip
    - Set up a custom background
    - Change the phone.apk
    - Change the kernel

    etc etc. I get sick of doing it all individually...

    Apparently you need to know linux code, something I'm not intimately familiar with.

    Basically it's a zip file of all your products, replacements etc..... then there is a script that tells it what to do... the script's are linux commands basically.

    I don't know **** about linux code, but I took someone else's **** and basically stole it. So now I just replace what I want from their update.zip.
