You would be surprised by the variation of download counts between the scripts butty. For example, kernel wipe and rom nuke are streets ahead of all the others (even though at the moment on the S4, a kernel wipe hardly does anything at all)

If I did bundle all zips into a single zip this would mean:

1. I would have to explain to everyone to download and install 7zip and how to unbundle it to get the separate scripts, and then put onto their devices.
2. I would repeatedly get pms complaining that the bundled zip was attempted to be flashed on the device, and it didnt work (oddly enough)

Even if I make all this clear in the OP I would still no doubt have to tolerate point (2.) considering the near 40,000 downloads up to now (S2+S4)

As these are still betas, I decided after updating the central shell script that all the zips use, to put this in all the zips regardless, even though this particular change only affected rom nuke and rom reset. Given time, after letting the scripts bed in and I am satisfied with them, I will take them off beta and just update the individual zips that are affected with a change (as I used to on the S2). This would make 90% of a bundled download redundant.

I shall however consider a bundle package via pm to a select few in the future however.
