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 boot.img to the spot where there is already a boot.img and replace it with yours
Most Kernels require different system/libs/modules
I added a spot for you to add these as well.

Would this work if we want to make a flashable zip for certain files? Say frameworks, systemui, etc?

So I would just need to update the updater-script, correct? And remove the boot.img file?
