Default [Kernel/CW] Kernel Update ZIP file for Clockwork MOD

I am not sure if someone posted something similar or not.

Anyways.

This ZIP file does not have a KERNEL in it, it is just a ZIP with empty boot and system folder. The META-INF contains a script that will copy everything in boot to your \boot in your ROM and everything in system to your \system in your ROM.

NOTE: It will overwrite any files that have the same file name in the same folder. So, yes, you can use it for other than updating kernel, say copying a file to a specific folder in \system partition, or \boot partition.

Just open with 7-zip, drop zImage file into the boot folder, then drop modules in the system\lib\modules folder. Copy the zip file to your SD, then run Clockwork Recovery, and install the zip.

Code:
ui_print("Welcome to MDJ Kernel Updater");
mount("MTD", "boot", "/boot");
mount("MTD", "system", "/system");
ui_print("Copying zImage...");
package_extract_dir("boot", "/boot");
ui_print("Copying modules...");
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
unmount("/system");
unmount("/boot");
ui_print("All Done...");
I don't see anything in the updater-script that requires signing.
