I recently made a twentyten child theme, but I'm curious as to how I can make the child theme independent of its parent, ie exist without the twenty-ten theme folder present.

I couldn't find any information on this and thought WP answers could shed some light.

    clone twentyten, rename first line in styles.css, rename folder. cherish it as your own forever and ever. – GhostToast Jun 6 '13 at 17:52

An independent theme is not a child theme anymore.

Copy the original theme instead, use another name and another directory name too.
Do not use the Template: othertheme part in your style.css headers.

That’s all. No magic. :)
