    Hey guys I have been trying to figure out how to make a .zip flashable in cwm. To specify I am trying to make es explorer apk into a flashable zip. I have tried numerous times and failed. As it wont flash. Also does the zip need to be configured differently for different phones with cwm? Thanks

    I don't know a whole lot about it but I do know that when zipping, the compression needs to be set to store.

    Use this..theme.zip

    Our systems are set to install a certain way.. ie. system/app/***. If you do not put the .apk in that order it will just try to install it where you tell it... These things are very specific to do exactly as you tell it... another reason why android is soooo awesome.... Besides the fact it (sandboxes) every file...

    ah thank you, so for the theme.zip I would have to make a folder named system then another folder for app then stick the .apk file I would like to flash inside?
    Time to go test this thanks!

    This might help you also. It's a link to Bloodawn apkinstaller.zip. All you do to install an .apk is open the app folder in the zip , add the .apk and then flash in CWM. PROFIT!

    When you boot into Recovery go to "install zip from sdcard", then scroll down to "toggle signature verification", and select. Make sure that is says that signature verification is disabled.

    This may be a dumb question, but you DO have clockworkmod recovery installed right? :D

    Thanks, I was looking for this. I have my own version of titanium backup and a preferred file manager that I install right away on any mod. On my moto triumph, it takes some time to connect to 3G or wifi when I first use a rom. To install my titanium apk or many other of my maps.. I of course need a file manager. So If I can at least flash a file manager, I can get to titanium backup and other apk files.. But I actually might just keep a backup folder of apk's.. I may just add all my favorite up to date apps, to that folder, for easier installs on a new rom.

    You do understand that this is for the Samsung Galaxy prevail, correct?

    It should work on any device tho, provided the updater script is changed to match your phones /system partition
