Make Flashable Zip for Android
Koushik Dutta, Founder of CWM recovery, has come up with a tool to help you create Flashable Zip files for Android.
He believes, if you give the power to the users, they can bring in innovative ideas and they can create interesting flashable zips.
The app that lets you create update zip files is available via ROM Manager or through the online interface. (This will be available soon as per the time of writing).
As Koush explains:
you can modify /system and boot/kernel to your liking, and just make a zip using this new feature…it doesn’t include /data and /cache. No personal data is stored in /system.
Essentially, you can do a lot of things, customize the ROM how you want it, use the feature, and then you have a flashable zip with your set up either to share with others or to flash whenever you need it. Since the zip doesn’t contain the /data partition, there are no concerns related to privacy, its free to distribute.
ClockworkMod Recovery 6 would have it integrated.
