XBMC Addon Development - Updated Zip file doesn't update addon issue

While working on an XBMC addon, I got my addon to install properly and then decided to make some changes. I Uninstalled the addon and tried to install the new Zip file but the old addon showed back up and none of my changes existed.

I'm still not sure why I can't upload a new Zip file with an update, but I found a better way to development the addon anyway. By placing the folder with my addon into the {XBMC Install location}/addons folder, I was able to restart XBMC and have my changes take effect immediately.

I hope at some point I can understand why updating via a Zip file wasn't working, but for now, I'm just going to develop in the addons folder. If you know why it wasn't working, leave a comment below!
