looking to create a custom rom...

1 post in this topic

its pretty straightforward so im not looking for advice on how to go about doing it, its just the 1 step im slightly concerned about...

basically if i add .apk files which i downloaded from the marketplace to the custom rom would i still get updates for those apps? im doubting i do, because if i install apk's from a developer website rather than through the marketplace i have to uninstall and then reinstall to have the latest version of the app. if there is no work around i suppose i could just create a new custom ROM everytime 1 of the apps which i use gets an update, but thats just labourious and not neat. i like elegant solutions.

any help would be much appreciated.

EDIT: just realised there must be a way to do this because apps that come preinstalled on the phone get updated through marketplace, such as google maps.
