  • Currently, manufacturers working independently to bring their custom software for their Android devices, also push their updates using their own system. Custom ROM developers have to create flash-able .zip files that can be installed using a custom recovery, such as ClockworkMod. All this is about to change.


    The next level in Android development is the ability for custom ROM developers to seamlessly push OTA (Over The Air) updates to their users. At the moment, for custom ROM developers to bring OTA updates for devices they would need to have their own hosting infrastructure in place. The crew behind OTA Update Center has centralized the entire process into a free, easy to use service that takes the legwork out of the equation. The new system features:

    • 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.

    ROM developers that feel they should benefit from the FREE service are welcome to head over to the XDA Developers thread or to the OTA Update Center homepage. You can also visit the credits page for complete info about team behind the game-changing service.
