Normally there's an exe file in there somewhere that your phone will run but you need to run it via boot recovery. Do you know how to do that?

Easy way is to hold bottom volume button whilst powering the phone on. You'll see a menu which should have an option to install zip from sd.

Is android developed in Java? I have a bit of java experience (along with C#, C++, VB, PHP etc etc) so I might have a play:)


Yeah java, with some XML.

I haven't developed for android or any mobile devices, but it looks as though you need to package it in its native format (not sure what it is) to install it. (unless it's already installed then ignore :P)
