Default [UTILITY] Clockwork Combiner - Combine flashable zips. {Version 1.5}

I often update my firmware. Like many on here, I am some what of a flash-aholic.

I created this tool to assist in returning the mods and themes back on to a newly flashed device.

It works by combining several zips into one zip that can be flashed with ease.

It does this by combining the scripts into one, and adding all the files into one zip for the script to unpack. Please be aware that the zips must be compatible with your device.

It's very simple to use. Please give it a try and let me know how it goes:

Warning: Use this program at your own risk. If something goes wrong then it is your responsibility. If you use this program, then you accept that anything that does go wrong is your own responsibility.

Creating zips:
  1. Download and extract the program.
  2. Run the program.
  3. Hit the settings button and set up an output directory or leave it as the default (program location).
  4. Select the zips you wish to combine.
  5. Add a name for the combined file.
  6. Select advanced settings to apply any settings to the generation of the script.
  7. Wait for them to load (the combine button will become usable).
  8. Click combine button to join the zips into one zip.
  9. The file will be put into a folder named Final Outputs within the output directory you have specified.
  10. Wait for any processes to finish (windows should provide progress windows).
  11. Click the sign button if you wish to sign the zip.

Using zips:
  1. Copy the zip to the android device.
  2. Boot into recovery (requires custom recovery).
  3. Perform a Nandroid backup of your device (If you do not perform this step then it is your responsibility if something goes wrong)
  4. Flash the combined zip file.

Please Note: This is a beta version of the software and, as such, may contain glitches and problems. Please advise me if anything goes wrong, and if it does, what happened and what files you were using so I can make it better.

Also, please be aware that this program requires .net 4.0 and the signing component requires the Java Runtime. Links to both can be found on the website.

Changelog.

Currently working on:
  1. Unnecessary files (multiple boot.img for instance)
  2. Unnecessary code in the script.
  3. Further Testing
- Sony Xperia Z2
- Clockwork Combiner.

You would have to make one big script. Also, any double code would have to be removed, mainly stuff like package_extract_dir type stuff, no sense in it extracting the same files twice.

newest version does not work. when i try to add the first zip file, nothing gets listed but the green bar is full and combine is able to be clicked. go to add second zip, it gets listed in the box, combine no longer available, go to add third zip, asks if i want to clear the selection out, click no, combine freezes up and doesn't respond. asus zenbook running windows 8.

Have you updated your Java and .NET ? I've only used it with Windows 7, so it could be some kind of compability issue... Try running it in compability-mode for W7, and see if it works
SGS3 | RootBox Latest Nightly | NEAK kernel 3.2 | CWM Touch 6.0.3.2 | XXEMB6 |
SGT10.1WiFi | CM10.1 02/18 | Pershoot kernel 3.1.10 01/16 | CWM Touch 6.0.2.7 |

(This sig is probably already outdated at some point )

i'm pretty sure that stuff is upgraded. when i go to add the first file, nothing appears in the box, but the combine button is highlighted and it says "checking each file for structure validity" and doesn't do anything else. this is while running in compatibility mode for windows 7
