Hello! I have built a little windows app that allows you to easily create flashable zips. (tested on Nexus 5 (android 4.4) and Samsung galaxy S i9000 (android 4.3))


This program allows you to create flashable zips. Basically the program just creates directories needed
for flashable zip and place edited updater-script and selected apk or zip to right folder.
Then these folders are zipped with DotNetZip library. And voilà zip is ready to be flashed.
To use signing, make sure you have Java installed on your compuer


- Creating flashable zips for user, system apps, framework-res.apk, bootanimation and build.prop
- Editing updater-script
- Drag & Drop functionality
- Signing created zip

Upcoming Features:

- Adding files to zipped rom
- Multi languag support


Version 1.5:
- Simplified interface
- Improved code
- Minor bug fixes

Version 1.3:
- Added custom names option
- Rearranged options

Version 1.2:
- Android 4.4+ Kit Kat support (for apps in priv-app)

Version 1.1:
- Added signing zips
- Improved code and minor bug fixes

Version 1.0:
- Added more options
- Support for creating Zip's with multiple Apk's
- Completely rearranged UI
- Code improvments and bug fixes

Version 0.2:
- Kit Kat support
- Creating zips for build.prop
- Added options tab
- Bug fixes and improved code
- Added Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll (thanks to @codelover)

Version 0.1:
- Beta relese (2014-01-29)


Just drag an apk or zip to the textbox, and then follow message boxes for editing updater-script.
Name your zip and press enter. Zip will be saved to selected directory in options. There you can also
toggle message box pop-ups.

Seems interesting.

Did you test it and can you give an exemple of what you did, it'd be nice.

Best regards

I don't think Visual Basic Power Packs is installed by default, download it HERE.

@OrglCe, you might need to consider include 'Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll' in your zip package, of cause, under same path with Ionic.Zip.dll.

EDIT: Logo expanded too much here.
Keep up the good work.
