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))

INTRODUCTION:

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.
CURRENTLY NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ANDROID 5.0 LOLLIPOP!

FEATURES:

- 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:

- Lollipop support
- Multi languag support

CHANGELOG:

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)

HOW TO:

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.

Hi, I've yet to try the tool. Found you through the portal, Yay! Wanted to thank you for your work on this app, as it's something for which I've been looking. Thanks for your hard work, the development and for all future work on this app to come. Cheers!

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.

I want to edit some system files (e.g. build.prop) using my own scripts, do I have to choose the "flash system app" option? My problem is to find the right update-binaries files, the ones from working zips failed and I have no idea about creating my own.

I wish there would be some equivalent tools for linux...

The "flash system app" option is only for flashing system apps. You can't use it to flash build.prop or any other system file.
But I will try make that option in the future releases.

    V0.2 , still wont open on my PC. , why? :(

    I couldn't even extract with it errors.. more than likely my fault.I used 7zip

    Download Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll from this link:
    http://tinyurl.com/m45568q
    and put in the same folder of ZipCreator, It should work.

    Can it made to add more than one to the zip?

    This feature will be added in the next versions of the app. I will try to make it as soon as possibile,

    This app looks great.
    What would be greater is that the support of kernel flashing, i.e. boot.img files.
