Custom Android ROM Developers Get OTA Update Capabilities Like Carriers 50

Posted by samzenpus

hypnosec 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, which often involved deletion of the backup, installation of the new ROM, and 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 noob-friendly to use."

    If one can do OTA updates, then it isn't ROM is it?

    What are these people thinking? Are they intentionally misrepresenting their products? Or have the figured out how to do matter teleportation over standard carrier networks?

It's hard to think of you as the end result of millions of years of evolution.
