    Okay, I have searched this forum up and down for themes for MM. I've had no luck what-so-ever. I've looked everywhere, searched, everything and I can't find any themes.
    Does anyone where I can get some?
    I'll learn how to make some if I have to but I'll need help with that as well.

    Well, I'm guessing an entire ROM so that way I can choose which ones I want to change. For example, a blue theme, so I can change my market to blue and if I felt the need to change something else to blue, I could just go in MM and change that as well

    You prob won't find full themes for MM so you'll need to yank the individual apk's from other update.zip themes and rewrite the control files or install a different way... at least that's what I've come across... I've seen a few control files with multiple apk's tho so ya might be able to package them all up together in one big MM.... hope that helps, and hope that was correct...lol.

    Thanks, man. Yeah, what I'm doing now is just learning how to theme myself so I don't have to worry about it. Which is a pain in the a**. Some of it I can do through NinjaMorph, others I'm just going to extract the .apks, repack and insert into the system

    Watch youtube videos and ask questions... if you wanna edit or theme, like make you battery icon at the top different, it's in system/ framework/ framework-res/ res/ drawable-hdpi.... you can change or just edit the icons for the battery and then write a control file for metamorph and zip it all up or just reinsert the whole framework into the androidthemes/workspace folder and it'll apply the changes as well...

    Well, the method I've come to is just having a version of the ROM and edit the things I want and replace the ROM version with the edited one. Trying anyway. And give an example of photo editor? I'm guessing you mean Photoshop,etc. Well, I downloaded Gimp but it's not letting me open images with it. Doesn't even give me the option. I haven't had a chance to use Ninja though, been trying to do it on the pc.

    EDIT: Individual files, not the whole ROM
