**APP REQUIRES ROOT + BUSYBOX**
**SAMSUNG GALAXY S 4G ONLY!!**
This app removes the placeholder used to save space for the over the air update, freeing up more room for system files and apps. I got pretty sick of that annoying "Internal Storage Full" message and the fota fix was a perfect fix!

You MUST be running a custom ROM to use this app. Your ROM developer MUST be using this app explicitly in order to distribute their ROM.
Your custom ROM must provide support for this application. If it is not already installed on your device, it is unlikely it provides support for this application. Please check compatibility before downloading this application.
Please do not leave a 1 star review if you are running a stock ROM, or it is not supported. This is negatively affecting the app's rating unjustly. It is not up to me to make your ROM compatible!
Optimised for Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat and Lollipop with matching UI themes to suit each API.
Fully ARM 64-bit compatible.
Once installed, you will receive notifications when an update is available for your ROM. You can choose whether to check automatically in the background, with all the usual notification controls you'd expect. You can also setup OpenRecoveryScript options to help automate your installation process.
More features will be added in the future.
There are some comprehensive instructions on how to get this working on the Github links below. It's very easy to get going though. All you need are some build.prop values adding to your ROM, a manifest XML document and somewhere to host your ROM (you may use direct links or HTTP links).
If you prefer you can use http://romhut.com to freely host your ROM, which will provide direct links for the OTA Updates and generate your manifest XML for you! Or, you can do these things manually if you like to have that little bit of extra control.

So, I decided to try to write an app that would help folks figure-out what the issues might be so that they can get their OTA update installed.
The OTA Verifier app can be used to evaluate an over-the-air (OTA) update.zip or other flashable .zip file before you attempt the install or afterwards to help you figure-out why the installation may have failed. OTA Verifier will point-out what files and conditions are being tested so that you can more easily attempt to correct these issues.
Q: Do I have to be rooted to use this?
A: No, but rooted devices will have more conditions that the app will be able to test/evaluate because it will have access to protected files that non-rooted devices don't.
Q: Will the app actually do the installation or change anything on my device?
A: No. The app will only evaluate the expressions and conditions contained inside the updater-script file inside the .zip file that's trying to be installed. None of the functions or commands that try to modify your device (i.e., delete/patch/format/extract, etc.) will be evaluated or executed. The app basically operates in "read-only" mode with respect to the .zip file being evaluated.
Q: Will this app work on older devices or flashable .zip files that use the amend update-script files?
A: No, this app evaluates and interprets the newer edify updater-script files (notice the "r" in "updater").
How do I use this app?
1. Install and launch the app
2. Click the "Select File" button and navigate to desired .zip file
3. Long-press (press and hold) the file entry for the desired .zip file
4. Click the "Verify OTA .zip" file pop-up
5. Wait for the app to process the file (very large files may take several minutes to complete)
6. View the displayed results (text will also be copied to the clipboard)
1. Savvy root users probably already know that after a failed .zip file installation, you should be able to view the /cache/recovery/last_log file to view the information about what might have failed. OTA Verifier will try to uncover all of the issues and not just the first one that causes the installation to fail.
2. While I wrote this app principally to evaluate OTA update.zip files, the edify updater-script files are used and written by ROM devs and others who created flashable .zip files. This app can be used to evaluate those file's updater-script files, too.
3. Note: it is not a given that an error reported by this app also means that the OTA will fail to install. I'm seeing newer (Android 5+) OTAs whose updater-script contains post-install SHA1 checks that will be reported as failures (false expressions) by this app. I've added (v2.5) a new "strict mode" preference/setting that will "allow" non-existent files to not make the expression their referenced in evaluate to false (which they would otherwise). Version 2.6 brings additional logic to handle these post-install SHA1 checks by allowing them to not be evaluated as false when detected after seeing a "verifying system partition files" ui_print expression.
4. Additionally, in v2.6, the app will suppress any errors past the 25th one since the output becomes unwieldy (you can revert this change in the preference/settings menu).

What does it do?
This uses root access to "Snatch" a copy of your device's OTA Update .ZIP file to your device's storage so you can upload it for others to use, or have a backup copy for yourself. (Remember, sharing is caring.)
***PLEASE DISABLE ANY USB MASS STORAGE OR IT WON"T COPY***
How can I tell it worked?
Use a File Manager or Computer to view your device's storage. Inside the /OTA/ folder on your storage you should find your OTA Update .ZIP file. The name depends on your device's OEM and other factors.
What devices will it not work on?
This is compatible with all rooted Android devices that use the /cache/ updating system. If your device is unique and does not support the /cache/ updating system, you can compile your own copy, or notify me of the device and I will try to add in support from my end.
This app is Open Source! You can compile it yourself from the github below.

>>> this application requires that the ROM developer supports it. THIS APPLICATION, STAND ALONE, DOES NOTHING. YOU HAVE TO SET THE REPOSITORY URL IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE UPDATES.
>> Json file not found: the repository is not available because the repository maintainer deleted it, not because the application doesn't work!
>>> ask the ROM maintainer to support ROM Updater in his mod! !!!
ROM Updater is meant to be an universal, free tool to maintain your Android modified operating system up to date.
It's repository-based, maintained by the ROM developer. It's able to recognize the mod name and version and will let you see the available updates, incremental or full download.
It has a full support for the most common recovery actions (cache/data wipe, apply zip update, backup etc). To set the repository URL you just need a click (you can always set it manually). *NEW* A list of the actual repositories is available in the settings menu - share yours sending anonymous data!
DEVELOPERS: to know how to create a repository / integrate the updater with your mod, please go to the website or send me an email.

This application was design for a friend, and is available on github for anyone interested.
I love my friends and programming, this has proven a great opportunity to mix the both and deliver something fun for everyone. I hope my friend enjoys this application and others can learn from its source code. <3
