Install from Zip.



Now we will be presented with a Navigation box,Here we have to go to the Directory to where we saved the Zip file.


Mine is on my C:/ but it will be the same principle for ALL Android users.



Once we have located our Zip file.



Just simply click on it.


And as you can see below,The Zip file is checking for updates at the top of the screenshot and at the bottom of the screen shot it tells you that the Add-On is enabled.
