    Metamorph questions

    So I'm just now finding out what metamorph is and I had some questions.

    If I understand right, you can install themes on you sd card and use metamorph to pick and choose each individual item on your phone you want to use that theme on. Is this correct?

    If so, where do I find these themes?

    Also is there a way to see screenshots of these things or do you just have to install them to see them?

    And if you don't like it is there a way to go back to how it was before?

    If I don't know what I'm talking about can somebody help a noob to understand what metamorph is?

    Seriously? No responses?

    Well with searches I believe I'm correct about what metamorph is, but I'd like to talk to someone about it.

    you probably haven't gotten anything cause its a pretty highly discussed topic.

    but

    your right, you put themes made through metamorph on your sd card, then use metamorph to select them, and change your theme. pretty easy!

    All your suppositions are correct. As far as undoing you need a stock theme to apply. As far as finding themes you just need to look for them in the theme sections on forums. Using the program is really easy. I think the author Stericson has a video how to use MM somewhere either on xda or youttube.

    I'd go a step further and say make a full Nandroid backup before playing around with a theme. I learned from experience, having changed from stock to the Ice theme. I got a cool blue Gmail and Gallery icon, but the "Stock theme" didn't replace those. Haven't figured out how to fix just those two icons, but it's not a big deal in the grand scheme.

    Anyway, just something to be mindful before you start playing around with it!

    You can also use MM to change the phone's look (battery icon, notification bar color, even the system font).

    XML vs thm

    I am not up to speed on it but there is a change happening in the files you use with Metamorph. The original version used a file with .thm. The new files are in an xml format.

    What this means is that if you find an old theme you like, you may need an old version of MM to utilize it. You will get errors using the new version.

    There are extensive discussions of this in the xda forum.
