Default Wallpaper Scrolling?

I can't seem to get it to work on any launcher. Tried touchwiz, nova and a few others. No dice.

Lame! I would have thought it would at least work with custom launchers. Oh well, looks like I'll have to wait for cm.

I think it is because I uninstalled the Gallery apk. Stupidly, I don't have a backup. Can someone extract and post the gallery apk from their phone?

yeah i learned from my first ever android, never remove stock system apps like "gallery" or "messaging" or "browser" APKs just remove the defaults, cause it seems to always mess something up

I really liked the scrolling wallpaper too! I've put a bit of effort into finding an app, launcher or other way of enabling it. I've tried quite a few, but the only one I can remember finding that has it was the (expensive) TSF Shell 3d launcher. I'm not the kind of guy that spends $17 on a launcher, but it looked cool so I thought I'd check it out for the 10min grace period Play allows.

I'll post back if I come across an easy way of getting this back, but my hope is that this, among a few other tweaks, will come with a good ROM.

It will take some framework edits to get it to work on Samsung based ROMs!

Default Re: Wallpaper Scrolling?

After updating to the leaked FL14 build, wallpaper scrolling seems to work on every launcher I've tried.

I'm using Go Launcher Ex from the App store and I'm able to use scrolling wallpaper.
