    is there any other way to install LW's other than renaming update.zip and using SPrecovery?

    Copy or move the file from your sdcard to /system/app/ , you will need to click the RW button in the top right corner. Long press on it once it is there, change the permissions to RW- R-- R-- . You may have to reboot your phone after this.

    Yes. Also you can use adb "adb install file.apk".
