    Wasn't able to find a thread for general metamorph discussion so i made this one. I wanted a place where discussion can be had about using metamorph in general and what goes into creating and modifying metamorph themes.

    OK so I'm peeking around in several different zip folders meant for metamorph and i notice the fairly easy to understand xml and how/where the png is located (or whatever is being morphed). I get all that. Some of the zips contain files ".DS_store" and a folder named "_MACOSX" What are these for? Are they necessary for metamorph/android compatability or just something found in folders that happened to be put together by people using macs?

    Also if anyone can post links for generating/writing/converting xml, thm and any other helpful programs/apps for creating/editing metamorph files, that would be a great help to this thread.

    I second that. Half the themes I try to download and use via MM says "no file" only works on the couple files I d/l with the xml file in it.

    The new MM ONLY works with .XML files. All you really have to do though is convert the THM file to XML and then MM will recognize it.

    I've read that before but I don't know how to convert them. I've looked online for a converter but didn't find one. The help is appreciated

    Just gotta dig a little man. Google "thm to xml converter modmymoto" or "theme controlfile upgrader modmymoto" and you should be able to find it.

    Metamorph is awesome, you should check out this thread at XDA - How to MetaMorph/Theme - xda-developers . It has video clips on making themes. you should also check out Stericson othe theming app - NinjaMorph it is on the market. It allows you to theme, without connecting to your computer. Supercool, kinda of a learnign curve, but worth it. have fun, and remeber BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP
