If you’re anything like I am, you don’t like wasting time on annoying tasks. For many ROM and kernel developers, creating an Android update.zip is one such chore. Add in having to sign the update.zip after creating the updater-script, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Thanks to the work of XDA forum member benzyniarz1, however, we now have a tool to streamline the process. While this will unfortunately not help with any actual ROM or kernel development, this ought to make life just a little easier for the tireless developers who make this place as great as it is.
In the words of the developer:
I’ve found some time to build a new app that can create updates (as zip archive flashable via recovery).
-Simply to use interface
-Edify & Amend scripts
-Signing single ZIPs
Developers, get your lazy on and download UpdatezipCreator from the original thread._________
