Rooting, hacking and developing are some of the best features of the Android OS as thousands of developers keep on developing apps, ROMs and mods while Android users try out these apps, mods and ROMs. Installing custom ROMs and Mods has been an essential feature after rooting an Android device and both, developers and casual Android users, try to get the best mods and custom firmwares for their devices. Flashing these flashable zip files can take some time and switching on and off the device for installing new zip files can be quite annoying. ZipInstaller is a new app for Android, which lets users quickly install flashable zip files directly from the app rather than to install it through the entire recovery menu.
Using the power and volume keys to install flashable zips has always been annoying and with ZipInstaller, you can select your desired zip files using any file manager and the app will do the rest in the CWM Recovery menu. The app also offers an option to clear and wipe cache/data while you select the zip files to flash.
Possibly, the best part about the app is that you can install as many zip files as you want at once. ZipInstaller also lets you see and check the properties of various zip files before you install them. By Default, the app is set to use CWM Recovery for install zip files and you can change the recovery type using the menu.
ZipInstaller should work on most Android devices and has been tested on all the Samsung devices including the Galaxy and Note series, Xperia S and P, HTC Desire HD and Nexus 7. Both, the apk and the flashable zip file, is available for installing the app, which you can get here. Make sure that you create a Nandroid backup, in case something goes wrong.
