How to create an update pack
Since not everyone gets things right the first time, and we keep getting updates, the rootfs made it easy to install updates without downloading the whole system again.
Well now anyone can create an update pack
just create a tar file called androidupdate.tar
, make sure it has everything in a /system
folder with whatever files you want, drop it into /sdcard/andboot
and reboot holding down volume-up (camera on kaiser/polaris). Choose the update option and you should be good to go.
If things get wonky when you try to boot up, give the fix permissions option a shot in the installer, if it still fails, try wiping the dalvik cache, that can fix things up too.
