ROM Factory Makes Its Way to the Atrix 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II

The ever popular Fruitcake Maker also known as ROM Factory has been quietly making its rounds around XDA over the last several months, and as it’s been gaining momentum as a fun and useful tool for devs and users alike. However, it was only a matter of time before this tool starting hitting bigger and better phones. XDA Senior Member samcripp, creator of ROM Factory, has been bringing the application to new devices,the popular Motorola Atrix 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S II I9100.

For those who don’t know what ROM Factory is, it is an application that will take the /boot and /system partitions on your phone and create a perfectly functional, fully flashable update.zip out of them. There are a million and one uses for a tool like this, and users and devs alike are grounded by nothing more than their imagination, but the obvious two that come to mind are helping with ROM development and creating flashable backups.

Because the tool basically takes a copy of the /system partition, any modifications such as themes or tweaks are copied as well so developers can actually mod their ROM and then just use the ROM Factory to pump out a ROM with all the needed tweaks, ready for immediate flashing. Similarly, once a user gets their ROM customized how they like it, they are only a couple of clicks away from making it ready to re-flash at any time. Pure win.

Additional information, download links, change logs, screen shots, and pretty much anything else you could possibly need can be found in the Atrix 4G or the Galaxy S II threads.
