Here's a story we missed at the end of last week, but is definitely worth sharing. Some enterprising devs in the community have taken things to a whole new level for all developers. They created a service called the OTA Update Center. This new service basically allows developers of custom ROMs to push out OTA updates to folks who use their ROM. Now there is a centralized system that all Android developers can use to keep their projects up-to-date, and what's even better is that they are providing it for free. Here's a quick breakdown of everything this new service can do:
  • Add and remove OTA Updates in a centralised database.
  • Check for updates on boot of devices.
  • Check for updates manually when the person wants to.
  • Download the rom and flash it directly.
  • Download the rom without flashing.
  • Wipe data and or cache/dalvik before flashing the update.

Here's the link below. Check it out and marvel at the brilliance of this idea!
