PC-free upgrading for Android ROMs



Over-the-air firmware updates are mainstays for most Smartphone platforms, but custom ROM builders have rarely had such a luxury, even with Android. The OTA Update Centre wants to shoulder that noble burden. Along with simply hosting the update center outrageous bandwidth bills, the Centre enables everything an Android ROM creator might need, such as update checks, on-device firmware flashing and wiping either a cache or all user data for the most dramatic upgrades.

IN practice, the real perk is the cost: it's free to use, so everyone from hobbyists to seasoned teams can take advantage.

OTA stands for Over The Air. This is the term used for services that a Smartphone or a handset can access without the need to connect a USB cable or through a Bluetooth connection. The OTA Update Center is an update center that is free to use by everyone. It is exclusively designed for custom ROM developers to apply a free and easy to use OTA Update application.

Here are several of its features:

  • Ability to add and or remove OTA updates in a unified database.
  • It can push notification for any ROM update.
  • It can check every day for an update as well as manually check for an update depending on the user.
  • It can download the ROM and directly flash it or download the ROM but without flashing it.
  • It can erase the data or maybe catch it before the update is flashed.
  • All available ROMs are listed in the website so no need to search for other locations.

But remember before you download this application to your Smartphone, it is only functional on supported custom ROMs. So if you wonder why it doesn’t work or maybe it works for a time and then it doesn’t again, you need to contact your ROM developer. Visit OTA Update Center to download this application.
