Learn More about the Updater-Script
If you’ve ever flashed any aftermarket development work or theme through a custom recovery, installed an OTA update, or used the powerful AROMA file manager, you’ve used an updater-script. No big deal, right? Everyone who reads this site should already know this.
What not every beginner can do, however, is look into the updater-script and make sense of it all. We’ve featured a few tools in the past that help users create updater-scripts, but it’d also be good to know what it all means. Now you can, thanks to a new guide.
Authored by XDA Recognized Developer KINGbabasula, the guide takes an example updater-script and explains various commands. These include getprop, mount, package_extract_file, set_perm, run_program, symlink, set_perm_recursive, and several more.
If you’re a beginner who wants to learn a little more about the ubiquitous updater-script, head over to the tutorial thread and get your reading on.
