Install from intent

Since version 3.6.0 it is possible to trigger the installation of a local update from an intent.

To do this the action “com.handheld.updater.action.INSTALL_LOCAL_UPDATE” has to be called with a string extra called “file”.
This needs to point to the ZIP file within the Android OS file system.

See the command below for a full example


Starting with version 4.0 there is also a broadcast to trigger an update check with the action “com.handheldgroup.systemupdate.CHECK_FOR_UPDATE”:

The install command also has a new action “com.handheldgroup.systemupdate.INSTALL_LOCAL_UPDATE” but the previous one will also still work.
