Update Launcher: A (slightly) easier way to install extensions
After you install this GUI launcher extension, you will see a new entry in the launcher that says "Update Launcher" If you put something in the extensions folder and tap this, it will restart the framework and update the launcher. But the main feature is if you take a .lext file (for devs, it's a zipped up extension) for the extension, which devs will hopefully provide, put that in the root of your kindle's usb and tap "Update Launcher", it will automatically unzip and install the extension.
In other words:
Take the extension file, put it on the kindle's dirve and update launcher. It's that easy!
Why this extension? Because now people (aka n00bs) will not need to worry about which folder to put in the extensions folder, unzipping/untarring/unraring..., and accidentaly getting windows line endings into their scripts, and a whole lot of other stuff.
Also, I plan to eventually add things like post install scripts (VERY useful for WAFs).
Can one of the site mods add .leg as an approved upload file extension?
UPDATE: Changed extension from .lext to .leg
