+ - Custom Android ROM Developers get OTA Update Capabilties like Carriers-> 1

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "A new service dubbed OTA Update Center has been launched that enables Android ROM developers to provide over-the-air (OTA) updates of their ROMs in a centralized and easy fashion. Custom ROM developers had very little at their disposal when it came to providing updates and when any user with such a ROM did want to apply an update, he/she was required to reinstall the new ROM from scratch that often involved deletion of backup, installation of new ROM, restoration of data. This was a lengthy process and often a deterrent when it came to updating the ROM. Also, the developers were required to have their own infrastructure whereby they would be required to host their own servers and have the required bandwidth to serve scores of downloads. The OTA Update Center changes this and provides a free to use service that is easy and noon-friendly to use. The website reads, “This project is especially for the rom devs around, to be able to implement an easy to use, and free OTA Update app.”"
