Default How to make a flashable zip

After you made the rom, update, theme, ect. You select all of the stuff in the main folder then
(For Windows: right click and click send to them compressed zip file)
(for android with any root browser: select all of the stuff in the main folder and in the bottom you will see zip or something)

Sorry if you have linux or mac but I don't have those. :what:

Is this a question, a guide, or a joke?

Well, you also need the proper folder structure (system/app/someapp.apk, for example), and a META-INF folder with a proper updater-script and update-binary.. And zip those folders together.. And possibly sign the zip (unless sig checks are disabled in your custom recovery). I bet there are other guides around...

And sorry about the joke comment - no offense meant. I later thought you might be posting it for someone else... but searches and/or PM's are great too..

This link can get you started with writing the actual updater-script. There are several threads here with tools that also build the scripts and zips like you were asking.
