    Can I make my own flashable zip? I hate having to install my apps on my SD card everytime I install a new ROM. If I can, how would i do that?

    This was the first result when I googled "android how to make a flashable zip" :

    I've never tried it myself, but give it a look.

    A beautiful idea.
    I'd hope to find out, myself.
    Having near 100 apps, I dislike doing this as well.
    Keep me posted on how this works for you!

    You could manually mount them prior to flashing though, right?

    You could get on a file explorer like root explorer and zip the file you want

    You can, but it is the update-binary and the updater-script that tells the recovery what to do.

    I found this app that says it does just that. It's called App2zip. I used it to make a zip of all my user apps, but idk if it will flash ok. Next time I switch roms I'll try it out and let you know.

    Nope, it didn't work. I made a .zip of 28 apps while I was running gingerdx. I flashed Bobz CM9 with gapps, rebooted a couple times, and tried flashing my .zip. I got an "Error 0" and it wouldn't install. Shame, it was such a cool idea. I'm gonna keep monkeying with it.

    Same happened here on Cold As Ice.

    Me gusta. Well, I'll keep an eye out and see if I can find anything. If not, I could possibly learn how to make an update-binary and an updater-script? *thumbs up*

    Easily Create Flashable Zip Files with Aroma App Package Creator – xda-developers


    Going to try this. Looks promising. Look who made the app.

    EDIT: Booting up after making zip....OHP! Just booted...let's see shall we.

    EDIT: SUCCESSFUL.
