If it's an apk, you should be able to rename it to .apk and run it to install it. An .apk file is just a .zip file with a different extension.

If not, it depends on what's in the .zip file.

If you got the apk as a rar file you need to extract the apk from it. The only apk that you can flash would be super su if you was rooted .

If it's a .zip file, it's not an .rar file. That would be like Tom's name being Bill.
