Hello!

I've just released on the Market my new ROM Updater!
Differently from koush's ROM Manager, this one is stand-alone repository based, it's freeware and ad-free. It can be easily integrated in your own ROM and it allows you to download full or incremental (if available) updates.

Besides updating your system, it allows you to automatically perform some recovery actions, such as cache/data wipe and backup just clicking on a menu item.

Comments, ideas and donations are welcome

The application reached the version 1.7, a lot of downloads but still no one who use it. I thought it was outstanding (for ROM modders/developers) to have such an instrument for free, but I think I was wrong.

By the way, I've updated the webpage with more content, for example how to automatically create incremental updates. I tried with the latest versions of some ROMs and there is a huge improvement in zip lightweight.

Let me know.

The kind of tool you bravely developed may be considered a bit sensitive, people will need to be sure it is stable before adopting it.
So please hold on because I (and probably many others) think it's the perfect kind of tool for us rom modders and tweakers :)

you need to get this thing started by including CM nightlies etc without a server needing to be entered, also the title in the program makes it look way to WP7 style..

just some constructive criticisim, no flames please guys:)

Great app always disliked ROM manager for restricting features without paying, I prefer to donate because I like the app not because I have to

@elban: test test test test and test again
@soccerdon1981: of course you can Directly link the website ^^
@samo_nz: well, I thought about setting a standard repository, but it's even phone-independent, so if I set one for, i.e., the Nexus One, all the others may dislike it. This is an "unbranded" application, and I've wrote on my website how to "embed" a ROM repository directly in the ROM . As of the title, yeah it sucks, but I can't edit it :P

@all: good news for everyone I've released my incremental.jar (+ sources). This program allows you to create incremental updates with even more options than the PHP one, and should be Windows-compatible too without editing a single bit

v.1.8 is out

- ROM modders/developers: you don't need to format the ROM name, now it will see the version from the incremental variable, always in the build.prop file. How to say: just implement it, there are no more excuses (more info on the website)

- changed from version 1.7:
-- Tried to fix a null pointer exception (please test)
-- Added incremental.php and incremental.jar (plus sources) in the git repo to automatically build incremental updates starting from *old version* to *new version* unzipped updates
-- Moved common data in a singleton (SharedData class), more comments and readable code
