    I'm new to hacking so bare with me here. I'm attempting to install custom transparent themes to my widgets on Droid X. I currently have Liberty 1.5 and i managed to get the transparent power control theme to install just fine using Metamorph.

    I am now trying to install the transparent digital clock theme and i can't seem to get it to work. I know i have to move the .apk file to the /system/app folder but i can't find it. Where would i look or how could i search for it in my file manager (root explorer).????

    If you are looking for an apk you downloaded from the market, try looking in data/app

    No thats not what i'm looking for. According to droidpirate.com, there is some sort of file i need to move into the data/app folder in order for the theme to be applied to the widget i'm aiming to mod. Its something like com.socialnmobile.clock.digitalwidget.apk or something like that.

    That's the file I am saying should be in data/app, which you seem to have said that you wanted to move to system/app, so that you can use MM to apply subthemes to..since MM can't be applied to data/app

    Yes sorry, that is what i meant. My brain went to sleep long before my body did last night.

    Edit: I found what i was looking for. I wasn't using root explorer, instead was using "file manager" that came with liberty 1.5 and it wasn't letting me view anything in certain folders when i opened them. Sorry about the misunderstanding.

    Also, according to this piratedroid.com, can i use this metamorph theme on ANY digital clock widget on the market as long as i move the widget's apk file to system/app? Or am i limited to only one?
