The AFV File Verifier for Android™
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 calculation
(also: 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
Excellent tool for root users (but does not require root

* 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 nandroid.md5 file to use this function)
- md5sum -c Type Check (operates on any .md5 file)
