[Windows] Make update.zip of Google apps from NAND dump! Works w/ 1.6 and new Market!
This script makes an update.zip file that only contains the Google Apps from the HTC release of the 1.5 firmware upgrade for the ADP 1. This update.zip should be flashable on any build and it should work without a problem, but since I'm just a n00b sophomore in highschool, I am naturally poor and can't guarantee anything.
Because there are already a few alternatives to this for Linux and the majority of Android users use Windows, I decided to make this a Windows-only batch script.
You MUST have the Java Runtime Environment installed in order to run this script!
The signing utility requires Java and you won't be able to flash an unsigned update. If it doesn't work even if you have Java, you may have to reinstall Java as it is not in your PATH variable for whatever reason.
: Updated and, as far as I know, should now work fine with the 1.6 developer images from HTC as well as personal NANDroid backups of most all 1.6 Android ROMs.
1) Either do a or b. It is advised to use a personal NANDroid backup
(b) as it does not violate any licenses, but it has not been tested
a) Google for the file "signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-img-14721.zip" It should be on the HTC support page for the ADP 1, but it wont be the first result in Google. It is not advised to use this method as you need to agree to a license prohibiting modification of the file in order to download it. Rename the file to "backup.zip"
b) Restore to a regular build that has all of the Google Apps (like the regular OTA cupcake update) and then run a NANDroid backup. Then make a zip file that only has the system.img file from the NANDroid dump and name the zip "backup.zip"
2) If you haven't already, unzip the entire contents of the gapps2zip.zip file into a directory. For sake of simplification, I am assuming it is unzipped to C:\gapps2zip
3) Place the "backup.zip" file in the same directory as the GApps2zip.bat file (C:\gapps2zip) and DON'T
rename it or unzip it.
4) Open up a command prompt window (Hit Windows + R, type in CMD, then click OK)
5) cd to the directory in which the GApps2zip.bat file, utils directory and the backup.zip file. For example:
6)Type in "GApps2zip.bat" (without the quotes) and hit enter. Watch and wait.
7) If all goes well, you should have an update_gapps.zip folder in C:\gapps2zip. Put it on your SD card, make a NANDroid backup, and flash after flashing an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) build that doesn't include the Google Apps.
