    I am working on my own ROM. Things are going quite well so far, but I cant release a test version until I figure out how to create an update.zip from the current state of my phone.

    I can make a Clockwork NANDROID, but thats not what I want to do.

    How do you go about making an update.zip of the ROM thats currently being used on the phone? (Im testing and running it at the same time)

    I may also have questions about some of the scripts or other tweaks and where to look for them, but thats when I get around to it.

    Just take someone else's update.zip and remove their stuff and add your own.

    You will need fonts, unless using stock fonts, framework, just use your own framework-res.apk, and then a system folder for your apps.

    Use adb and pull all of your /system/app to your computer and pull your framework, and then open an update.zip and go into the system folder and there should be a folder for apps, and a framework folder. Put things accordingly.

    I hope this helps : )
