Default Flash all your apps at one time (makes life so much easier)

Here is a .zip where you can flash all your apps in one fell swoop.

This is not my work but something Silesh made for me. I don't think he will mind me sharing it.
I use it all the time and it saves me tons of time not having to install my apps manually.

All you need is WinZip
Just put all your apk files into the data/app folder
and flash away.

What I do is flash the rom and fully boot it first,
then I go back into recovery and flash this .zip.
Boom, all my apps installed. Very nice!



I put just one apk in there. Clean Brower, just so it will work and I can post it here.


Another trick is, using Root Explorer on you phone, just copy your data/app folder from your rom
Then replace that app folder in this .zip and all your apps will be in there.
The advantage to doing this is even when you update or add new apps your apps from the playstore or other, the updated apks will end up in this flashable .zip.
Just make sure when using WinZip when you "add files" and add the app folder you drag it into the data folder. (first delete the app folder that is already in there.)


Again all credit goes to Silesh
Just thought I'd share this.

It should work on other devices the same.
It flashes all your apps to data/app folder which is used on any Android device.
Obviously not for windows or apple.

Yes thanks.
I have a couple other apps that create flashable zips
But none work as good as the script Silesh has made.
One has an aroma installer but it also has alot of bugs.
Copying my data/app folder into Silesh's .zip works flawless for me.

Default Aroma Installer

Here is an apk that basically does the same thing.
You can use it to backup and reflash all your apks in recovery at the same time.
This one uses an aroma installer which is nice because you can check or uncheck only the apps you want to install.
It will also do system apps.

Not my work. Had this kicking around from a older phone.
Seems to work fine on the Mega.
Just sharing.
