Some people aren't sure how to create a flash-able zip. So here is a template zip file.
If you want to edit the updater-script (what shows up in recovery when you choose the .zip to flash. It it's in META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script, edit with notepad++, and edit in between the parentheses ui_print("Put Your Text Here");

add your .apk/.jar files to the appropriate directory within the zip.

for example, SystemUI.apk would go into system/priv-app
android.policy.jar would go into system/framework
and so-on

No need to seek permission for this or give any credits. Just something for those who need it.

Thanks for this. Question. What line would we need to add to the updater-script to lets say remove a file? And when to add it. Thanks for n00b questions, just trying to learn this stuff.
