Didn't mean to be rude. it was just fun....
and in XDA, we have to be a bit rude when new people not try to Google and read stuff before posting a thread about it.
Let me explain..
You know how to install a program in windows, right? run Setup.exe etc etc
In Linux, or android specifically, you just copy paste stuff into the required directories, and set their specific permissions. That's it.
Flashing a zip does exactly that. When in a custom recovery, you select a zip and install it, it copies its contents into specific folders of your phone partitions and sets the permissions of files as required.
You install ROM's, MOD's, themes, tweaks and many more things using different zips.
Hope it helps this time..... but if you would have Google and read, then it would have been more natural learning for you and better understanding.
