    Ok so my phone is running well its rooted and im trying to get Metamorph to work but it wont load the themes. i downloaded the new file extention transfer tool and its not seing the file when i try to find it to tranfer it the new file extension. Im not even sure if im downloading the right themes at this point. The XDA website is refering to different types of roms(CyanogenMod 4.2.9.1, Dwang 1.13
    , , and AOSP 1.6
    ) im not sure i can use or even have on my motorola droid 1.Please heellp?! lol

    the theme you selected is invalid because the theme control file could be missing or is not correctly written.

    Where are you getting your MetaMorph themes from ?

    It could be your theme file is in fact invalid...also what exactly are you trying to theme with MM ?

    I've gotten several themes from link s on this site. Hopefully ones that use busy box. To be honest I'm not sure whats what when it comes to using roms and what the difference is. I've downloaded the glass theme and opened the zip file. Then tried to open and edit the phone part odd the glass theme and received the previously posted error message. When I try to edit anything else it says folder empty. I'm using astro file manager to navagate.

    So you are downloading a MetaMorph File and trying to edit it on your phone and then cannot get it to apply via MetaMorph because of the invalid theme file warning ?

    No. I'm either getting the error message or the un zipped theme folders are showing up empty through metamorph. For example while metamorph and while I navigate through download unzipped themes the folders are blue. When I click on them to use that part of a theme the folder says its empty so theres nothing to click on. I got lucky when i downloaded the glass theme and tried to change the skin on the phone part of the theme and opened that folder it showed the metamorph icon next to the file and it allowed me to click on it but then I got the error message I posted earlier.

    Link to the metamorphs you are using? You're probably using ones that have the outdated .thm file in it..

    ok so im extremely new at this. ithought you can root the phone and install metamorph then download and use the themes. but it seems the more im researching it seems that i need to do more things to the phone. i hd busy box installed but thats not enough i think. I then downloaded rom manager and downloaded bugless beast. So do i have to boot into recovery mode to load the themes or just use metamorph? im not sure sure where exactly to find the correct themes to download.
