I have downloaded so many custom ROMs to try, but I did not organize them. One of the zip files is called "".

Is there any way to determine what it's name is just by inspecting the files in the zip file? Or maybe some other information about it?

This is just curiosity, I know I can just flash it and see its info in "Settings>About Phone".

Ok. I have found the answer, at least for that ROM:

In the /system/build.prop file in the zip file, the first "section" has build properties, which details all the information that is visible in the "About Phone" part.

This is an example of it here:

# begin build properties
# autogenerated by Feb  1 15:11:04 KST 2012
ro.modversion= v2.0 Wilfred
# end build properties
# system.prop for GT-S5670

That's exactly where you need to go, for every ROM. – Hamed Momeni Sep 22 '12 at 17:33
