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.

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.
