Default Themes, live wallpaper, etc

So besides the themes, skins and wallpapers on your phone already, how do yu get different ones? Can you go on play store and download some themes and wallpapers? And also, the unlock ring, anyway you can change that?

You can use any pic on your SD Card as a wallpaper, when viewing it in your gallery, press More > Set As > Wallpaper. You're then given an option to crop the area you want to use.

If you want to take theming a little further, you can install an alternative launcher (Apex for example), that will allow you to change your icons, desktop transitions, the style of your app drawer etc and generally gives a lot more to tinker with as opposed to your phones standard.

For the lock screen, you'd need an alternative lock screen app. Widgetlocker is probably the most popular and is my personal favourite.

As you're using the One X, I suggest taking a look here: Show us your homescreen screenshots

See what folks with your handset have come up with.

Widgetlocker or Apex is not anything like rootiing my phone or jailbreaking it is it? There will be no risk of ruining my phone or anything? Can you get them on the playsore?
