More Advanced Guide to Edify Language in Updater-Script

Yesterday, we featured a quick guide  by XDA Recognized Developer KINGbabasula aimed at helping users make sense of the ubiquitous updater-script. While the guide that we shared talked about  many of the commands available in Edify, it naturally didn’t cover everything. In order to keep things simple, much was left out.

If you already consider yourself to be facile with the information in the previous guide, it may be worth checking out another guide on the Edify language used in the updater-script files, courtesy of XDA Recognized Contributor kurotsugi.

Based on a guide originally published over at FreeYourAndroid, kurotsugi’s Edify guide covers 26 different commands, many with syntax, parameter details, taken action, and what the functions return if applicable. Related functions are  organized near each other, giving the guide’s covered functions more context. And like the previously covered guide, understandable explanations are aplenty.

If you’re relatively new to the platform and want to learn a little more about the Edify language used in modern updater-script files, head over to the guide thread to get started.

[Thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor Deadly for the tip.]
