    If it looks like this on the inside, it is in all likelyhood an "update.zip" installation (note the META-INF folder):

    If it looks like this on the inside, it is a MetaMorph theme (note the ".thm" file):

    If it looks like this on the inside, it is a bootanimation that need to be renamed "bootanimation.zip" and put in /data/local or /system/media:

    If it looks like this inside, it is probably a SPRecovery nandroid (note the *.tar files):

    If it looks like this inside, it is probably a clockwork nandroid (note the *.img files):

    Hope this helps folks figure out "what's in the zip, and how do I install it" question.
