    This is what I usually send to ppl interested and its what helped me get started. And if you need more help, just drop me a line in my PM box.

    Creator of MetaMorph made some videos on how to create a MM. Watch these a few times. Will help out a lot. How to MetaMorph/Theme - xda-developers

    There are 2 formats that MM uses. thm and xml. Old version is thm and new is xml. I recommend including both in your zips so that all users of MM can use it.

    [RELEASE] Metamorph - Theme Control File Upgrader - xda-developers

    After I watched the videos above, I took a MM and unzipped it and learned from that as well. Also, one thing that I didnt realize for a while was make sure that the zip is the same name as your thm/xml file name. So if its mymm.zip, the xml file should be mymm.xml and the thm should be mymm.thm

    Some ppl like the older version. Myself, I use an older XML version as it was less buggy. But when I used to release themes, I always had ppl asking for THM, so why not just include both. Its very simple.
