Most of the custom modifications for Android devices are installed through recovery like ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) or Team Win Recovery Project Recovery (TWRP). Same apply to Samsung Galaxy S4. Therefore, here is the guide to install update zip with CWM. Yes, most of the mod files are in zip format (instead of tar which uses Odin software). For example, custom kernel, theme, boot animation, variety of mods and ROM are few of them. Oh, before I forget. DO remember to make a Galaxy S4 CWM Nandroid backup before install any custom stuffs.
