Default How do I delete apps with a zip file in recovery?

I install a ROM nightly and there are a few files that I dont need. I was hoping to create a file I can install after my ROM that will delete the 4 apps I dont need instead of having to manually remove them from the zip every day before I install it.

If possible, all I need is a zip file that deletes apps and I think I can modify it from there. Thank you in advance!

Just edit the updater script to what you want

There should be text in the updater script :-S

I think drop box is playing up. Try this - https://www.dropbox.com/s/tyz9zmqhhjvb3fz/deleteapp.zip

You had the answer to the problem before I went into retard mode. I opened the file update-script straight from the zip before copying it onto my hard drive (so it was blank). Copying the file to the desktop and opening the file locally allowed me to edit the file without an issue. I just saved the update-script and put it back in the zip.

In hindsight, the file from Ben36 would have done the job, but I wanted to learn how to do it myself.
