1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa
  2. DroidForums.net is currently undergoing a major software upgrade. If you are experiencing any problems logging in please: Contact Us

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.
