Just put all the zip files (repos or addons) in a location you can access. This can be directly on the device, on a USB stick, on a SD card or even a portable HDD. Then go to Settings>Addons>Install from Zip and navigate to the zip file location. Select it and wait for the confirmation pop up. That's it.

I know I can do that but i want to install all the separate zip at once.
Is there a command that will let me bypass the zip dialog?

I know I can unzip it all in python but this doesn't install the dependency the add on might call
