What's new in this version (2.0):
[version 2.0 - 18-Jul-2012]:
- support Nandroid backup verification for Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) custom recoveries
- moved two checksum comparison options to the main screen from the menu
- several other minor tweaks and enhancements
The AFV (Android File Verifier) application is a tool for helping to verify & validate that files transferred to your Android device are whole and uncorrupted. Functions include:
* MD5 / SHA1 checksum/digest calculation (also supports SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512 algorithms)
* Validation of signed jar-type files (.jar, .apk, .zip); you can use this to verify a signed .zip file even if you don't know the MD5 checksum
* Nandroid backup directory MD5 verification (i.e., verify backups created by custom recoveries such as ClockworkMod, Amon_RA, TWRP)
Excellent tool for root users (but does not require root).
How To Use:
* From the home screen, press the "Select File" button to enter the file-selector
* Top row (folder icon with the green up arrow) always displays the currently selected directory (touch this row to navigate UP one directory level)
* Back key can also be used to navigate UP one directory level (will return to main screen when back key is pressed at the root directory)
* Navigate to other subdirectories by touching a directory row (folder icon)
* Touch screen and drag up and down to scroll through all files and directories in currently selected directory
* Long-press on a file to view the available functions:
- Calc MD5 Checksum
- Calc SHA1 Checksum
- Verify Jar-type file
- Verify Nandroid Backup (long-press backup folder name or long-press nandroid.md5 file to verify the backup)
- md5sum -c Type Check (operates on any .md5 file)
- Calc SHA224 Checksum
- Calc SHA256 Checksum
- Calc SHA384 Checksum
- Calc SHA512 Checksum

The 'not applicable' message appears when you long-press a directory. Try a single/short press to navigate to the files in that directory.
THIS APP DOESN'T DO ANYTHING. JUST KEEPS SAYING NOT APPLICABLE. ROOTED DROID X. UNINSTALLED.
Awesome app! Thanks!
Garbage app. Pales in comparison to ManD5. Ugly UI.... very slow.
Works well and as expected. Thank you dev!
Great app. I have been waiting for someone to write this app !
A great tool, especially for rooters.
Great app! I used to use android terminal for this, but this is faster.
Thanks for the great feedback! Please email me with issues or questions (email@example.com).
Great except if I try to verify a zip I know is bad, it force closes
