NOTE:Those people who are not familiar with the basic Rooting terms like Nandroid backup,Custom Recovery,Busybox,Flashing etc are advised to go through Rooting:An Introduction as we are going to use these terms at some places in this guide 🙂
Getting a Nandroid Backup is the most important prerequisite in the process of installing a custom ROM in any android device.This Backup ensures that if anything wrong does happen with the device i.e. the device gets bricked during the process of installing a custom ROM,we can get back to the original state from where we started by just Restoring the backup through Recovery mode in our Android.
But For Flashaholics,who like to Flash New Roms everyday,this backup becomes obsolete as they keep on changing ROMs and every ROM has some unique features.so,If you want to get all these features in a single ROM, what would you do for that??
Well,we’re going to guide you in How you can make a consolidated file of all those features that you want in your ROM.In this post we shall guide you in HOW TO MAKE A FLASHABLE ZIP OF ANY APP/FONTS/FOLDER etc.
1.Download and install Zipme app from HERE.
2.Open the App and click on ADD(+) symbol in the lower right corner of the screen.
3.It will open a list of items viz. Apps,Data,System,File,Folder etc.You can choose any of these items i.e. If you want to create a zip file for an app,just choose it in the APPS menu,For system apps,choose system menu and so on.
For instance,we chose apps as we want to create a flashable zip of the PICSART app here.
4.In the next step,we are here with a list of both Downloaded apps & System apps.If it is a System app,Choose SYSTEM and If you have downloaded it from somewhere, Choose DOWNLOADED apps.
