Basically, I'd like to be able to set up a script that creates flashable zips on the phone.
I would have a couple uses for this, but one specific example is for using ZipThemer. ZipThemer still creates flashable zip packages using the old amend scripting, but I am using new CWM that requires edify scripting. The developer is aware of this change, but hasn't yet updated ZipThemer. My idea therefore was to create a script that extracts the needed files from the ZT zip and then puts them into a new flashable package with working edify scripts (that I keep elsewhere on the phone).
So far, all of the amend>edify solutions I've seen are desktop solutions. Since the packages I'd need to create are quite simple, I can keep various edify scripts in sdcard folders, ready to be packaged, but doing this manually all the time is frustrating.

ZipThemer 1.8 was released today with support for Edify scripting. See the ZipThemer User Manual for more information.
