    Hello MIUIers

    Today I am here with a walkthrough/tutorial for the MIUI Theme Editor. This is a wonderful all-in-one tool for creating new themes. It allows you to configure and create every part of a theme like System Ui, Notification shade, Wallpaper, icons and so on. In other words, the MIUI theme editor allows you to create a completely new Theme package. Your creativity is the only limit you would encounter while creating a theme with this package.

    What’s more, you can even modify existing theme you have created or other downloaded themes to suit your personal taste. Downloaded an awesome theme but dont like the lockscreen style or notification shade? Fret not, you can edit the theme and use it. But be warned though, stealing parts of someone else’s theme and calling it your own, is not only morally wrong, but will ruin your image and make you a cheater too [Image: 3.gif]. Not to mention your theme and your designer account might be permanently banned too.

    With all these wonderful features and options that this tool provides you for creating a theme of your own, there is one shortcoming. You cannot add custom animations to wallpapers and lockscreens of your choice with MIUI theme editor. Feeling Sad?? Don’t be. A separate tutorial will cover adding custom animations/effects to your theme. We will talk about that later.

    So pretty excited to start creating your own theme? I am excited to try and provide the easiest instructions to fast forward your learning curve for theme editing. I will try to keep the tutorial as simple and as easy as possible. So let’s begin.


    • WIndows / Linux OS
    • Java JRE/JDK installed (if not using jre include theme editor)
    • ADB properly Setup
    • You should have all Designed Png , Icons And other resources ready
    • You need to connect Your phone to Pc while Using this app to Import Resources for certains Modules
