    I am in the process of providing and updating this, though it will take some time as there is a lot to cover, and important to get the wording right so everyone can understand.

    For all of you having problems running MIUIThemeEditor, this is some workaround:

    It seems that the properties for the locale are missing, what does this mean?. When you try to run java -jar MIUIThemeEditor.jar, from the command line you will see that it will show an error saying that it doesn´t have the right properties file for your country, in my case was es_MX, because I´m from Mexico and we speak spanish.

    Basically, to fix this you have to open the MIUIThemeEditor.jar with some rar or zip app, then extract the "resource_en_US.properties" from the jar, and then change the name to "resource_xx_YY.properties", where xx is your language and YY is your country. Then add it to the jar.

    By this time, it should be perfectly running and you should have 3 properties files in your jar: the chinese one, the us one and yours.

    Hope it helps!

    :cool:

    Does anybody know how to mod themes to make some chinese values into english? I have checked the mtz files and have not seen any xml files with chinese values to change.

    Those are PNG images not a string on any XML man. You must have to replace or alter the PNG

    Wow, just tried to run this on both windows and linux, both worked.. This seems to have a LOT of potential! But we could use some more thorough translation and also an elaborate guide..

    In my first run, i tried opening a theme, everything seemed okay. But it was a bit confusing as to what the different functions do, how to actaully operate with the program. Only thing i could actaully see from the theme was the description and some of the coloring.. in the "modules" section, all i saw was the default images and theme elements??

    So i'm looking forward to see some tutorials with this, to make it easier for people to use effectively :D
    Maybe we could get this tool up on the english miui forum? I guess it would reach out to more people and perhaps make it easier to get some guides/tutorials/translations up and running??

    One more thing.. This thread wasn't easy to find, i stumbled across it by accident.. Shouldn't this be in the Theme (development) department?
