Auto-Update System Modification Technology to unite patches and themes in update glory

Are you ready for the next generation of updating patches and themes? Sure you are, don't doubt yourself. Even if you aren't, it's coming, in the form of WebOS Internals' Auto-Update System Modification Technology, or AUSMT. This new system is the follow-up the Auto-Update Patch Technology (AUPT) that's been for the past two years. AUPT existed purely for patches, making it easy to update your patches after an update to webOS.

AUSMT has been in the works for a while, but the moving of built-in apps with the webOS 3.0.5 update kicked things into high gear. AUSMT aims to make updates to patches and themes easier and will even help with failed/partial installations and removals of patches. Both Preware and webOS Quick Install will support AUSMT when it's released, as will the upcoming Theme Manager app from Sconix.
