    So, I wanna begin to contribute around here. I wanna learn how to theme apps, as well as try to make themes. Can someone steer me in the direction of how to guide and what programs i'll need. Don't know if it makes a difference, but I'm on a d1. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I'm new to all of this too..... I do know that you will need to download 7zip. Its free, and you can just Google it. That will help you unzip and take out what you need from roms, themes, or whatever. Get yourself a photo editing program like photoshop. Gimpt is pretty good and its free. Again just Google it. Guides on how to theme should be in the stickies. I'm at work or I would tell you more of what little I know. Later

    Check out Ninja Morph and Meta Morph on the market. There are how to videos on youtube for those apps. I use 7zip(free) also. And Gimp2 (free) to edit wallpaper, icons, etc. Here's some links:
    Gimp- GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program
    Animations with Meta Morph (these are easy and pretty cool) - Custom Window Animations
    Youtube Ninja Morph - Its all trial and error so make a backup before trying anything. Good luck.

    Thanks. I got 7zip, ninja morph, metamorph, gimp, downloaded the google doc. I guess now to start reading and playing around with it. I've been trying to customize the vlingo control widget. I'm all about transparent right now! I've run into problems with the 9.pngs.
