As The Name Suggest This To0l Will Create An OTA Update Package For You,
It Doesn't Work Like The Actually OTA Packages Due To The Nature Of Custom ROM And Their Customization Ability,
Making patching near to impossible,however this will scan to folder and compare them,
picking the differences, creating a new OTA Folder, which you just zip and broadcast.
The Advantage Of Using This Tool Are Simple
Smaller Update Packages,
Faster Upload From The Dev,
Faster Download For the User,
It's Also Allows user to update without having to reflash stock kernel, as the modules (if they're the same) wouldn't be included,
It's Also Allow You To See The Actual Difference between each updates
Updates:
Initial Release V1.0: Simple OTA Maker
Update V1.2:
Bug Fix
Update V1.1:
Logger Will Show An Error Should One Occurs
Exceptions (These Will Not Be Compared But Will Be Copied)
Upcoming Updates:
Suggestions
All Suggestion are welcome
Notice:
1) For Aroma Users I highly Recommend that after using the tool to copy and paste that folder yourself,
usually Aroma options don't change and thus ignored by this app
2) The Same Apply To the update binary
3) If You Use This App, Please Credit, There is no need to tell me but i'd like to know
4) Some ROM format the /system partition before installing the ROM, if so make sure to comment out that line
5) I'd Highly Recommend You test the OTA package before publishing it

How To Use
1) Extract The Old ROM (v1) Into A Folder And Place The Folder Into The "ROM" Folder
2) Extract The Updated ROM (v2) Into A Folder And Place The Folder Into The "ROM" Folder
3) Run The Tool & Click Refresh
4) Choose The Old ROM 1st & Then The 2nd ROM
5) Select A Name For Your OTA Folder
6) Click Process & Wait For The Magic To Happen
7) Now A Folder Will Be Created With The Name You Specified & Placed In The OTA Folder
8) Now You "Probably" Need To Edit The Binary Script To Make Sure It Works Correctly,
^^ You Won't/Shouldn't Remove/Edit Symlink/Chmod Or Extract Unless They Specify A Specific File

Awesome idea. Nice one. Would be useful if the devs that use this have a script to remove any .dex incase the ota receiver has reodexed their rom. But that's another matter.
