    Help with metamorph

    I've been looking for a good how to use metamorph tutorial but so far all i have found are just a bunch of older tutorials. If anybody knows a good tutorial that would be great if you could post a link.

    Also if anybody knows of a droid x froyo lockscreen that has been ported to the droid 1 could you please post a link for it.

    Thanks in advance.

    You want to learn how to create MetaMorphs, or just to use it?... and secondly, you have the needed files to port it yourself if need be?

    I need to learn how to actually create metamorphs. I've managed to figure out some things like notifications but I don't know how to make things like notification bars and lockscreen sliders

    Metamorph basically unpacks APKs, overwrite some files (whether PNGs, XMLs, etc) specified by the accompanting XMLs, then repacks the APK.... and reboots...

    So you need to be able to write the XMLs to control what you want Metamorph to do, and then you need to make sure you have the necessary files in the correct file structure for whichever APK you plan to mod. It also does not have to be working with any APKs, it could be any other file as well, just gotta have the correct XML so that MM knows what it is supposed to do.

    but how do you know which files need changed? for example framework-res affects a lot of different things, but I only want to change lock screens, how do I know which files to change? where can I read about that type of info. thanks.

    also drawable-hdpi and drawable-land-hdpi ... looks like for lockscreens there are files both those folders?

    (oh & I'm only on droid 1)

    I'm having trouble with metamorph as well. I am trying to change my battery icon in tUD 2.3. I put the zip in the correct folder on the sdcard, and I extracted the file through mm. I went to install it and it just says "installing framework-res.apk theme." I've let it sit there for an hour and it wouldn't go past that.

    Did you download the morph from a website or did you make it yourself?
