Hi Guys today I'm going to show u how to add OTA updates for your rom.
So what is it basically???
Everyone knows it lol
So lets start with the business.

1)First of all get the latest apk from here

2)Put this app in your rom's /system/app

3)Pick a ROM ID that you will use in our database(No spaces)

4)Add the following properties to your build.prop:
otaupdater.otaid=<ROM ID you picked from previous step>
otaupdater.otatime=<Date/time of this build in yyyymmdd-hhmm format>
otaupdater.otaver=< version number/name>

5)Package your ROM, generate an MD5 of the zip file, and upload it on any file sharing site

6)Then make your account and add your rom (update) on the site (OTA)

7)You will need the ROM ID you picked, the device you packaged for, and the URL and MD5 of the zip file.

8)For any further updates, just make sure you update the "otatime" and "otaver" properties in build.prop

Hope this HELPS!
