ACS Updater

Version 1.1
What is the ACS Updater?
ACS Updater is an app for android devices that allows you to download and install custom roms, kernels, themes, and modems from the internet on the fly. It's very simple to use: run the app, select what you want to install. You will get a screen asking if you want to wipe cache / backup first. Select options, and hit OK. The file will download from the net to /sdcard/ACSDownloads, and when complete, will reboot into recovery and install automatically.
Backup and Restore can also be done via the app, as well as Installing from SD Card, and even Install from URL - put in whatever URL you want, and it will download and install (if you put in a URL to something that isn't a flashable zip, and try to install it, that's your fault.)
In future releases, there will be more goodies, stay tuned!

Notes:
If you choose not to wipe cache, and the flash goes bad, that's on you. It's there as an option, but I'm not going to force it.
If you hit an area (such as Themes), and it says nothing available:
  1. Developer's have not submitted anything for your device
  2. Servers are temporarily down - try again in a couple minutes
This App depends on a custom recovery which includes extendedcommands


Developers:
Want your work listed in the app? Simply submit your info to the following links (whichever applies), and I'll get it added to the database.
Submit Modem
Submit ROM
Submit Kernel
Submit Theme

ChangeLog:
v1.1: Initial release
Backup
Restore
Download / Install
Install from SD Card
Install from URL
Wipe Cache / Dalvik

ACS updater documentation:

ACS updater: ACS updater is an app developed by ACSyndicate member Parabola and themed by Graphics Designer and ACSyndicate member Zhkilla. The app will allow users to install varioius ACS themes, kernels, roms, modems (radios), as well as files found on the sd card and on user selected URL’s. The app will also function as a custom recovery providing the user the option to create and restore nandroid backups that are stored on the sd card. The main interface of the app is a menu screen with the following selectable menus. The ACS updater recognizes the users devices and points them to appropriate directory for available downloads.

Install ROM: takes users to the directory specific to their device and serves them available ROMS. After user selects the apporpriate ROM the ACS updater will prompt the user to:
A. Clear Cache and/or B. Backup (Nandroid) the ACS updater will then download and flash the appropriate file automatically.

Install Kernel: takes users to directory specific to their device and serves them available Kernels. After user selects the appropriate Kernel the ACS updater will prompt the user to: A. Clear Cache and/or B. Backup (Nandroid). The ACS updater will then download and flash the appropriate file automatically.

Install Theme: takes users to directory specific to their device and serves them available Themes. After user selects the appropriate Theme the ACS updater will prompt the user to: A. Clear Cache and/or B. Backup (Nandroid).The ACS updater will then download and flash the appropriate file automatically.

Install Modem: takes users to directory specific to their device and serves them available Modem. After user selects the appropriate Modem the ACS updater will prompt the user to: A. Clear Cache and/or B. Backup (Nandroid). the ACS updater will then download and flash the appropriate file automatically

This looks really well done. Does this work in conjunction with a recovery like amon_ra or does it work independently of the existing recovery?

Very nice looking work here, guys.

It's meant to work with any recovery that has extendedcommands (except stock...)
So it should work with amon-ra, definitely works with clockwork.

Thanks for the kind words!

Nice work. Glad to see some new stuff from ACS. Srf 1.1.1 is what convinced me to root my phone in the first place.
