Default HOW TO: Live Wallpaper without Rooting

I'm copying this from another post because I don't want it to get buried. This is for everyone out there having trouble getting Live Wallpapers to work on their Moment.

I give FULL credit to the other posters.

------------------------------------------------------------

*6/30 EDIT! - The new links are now working properly! Go crazy!

-This post is assuming you already have the 2.1 update-

Files Used:

CCLeaner
OLD CL14 SAMSUNG INSTALLER
New Recovery File
Live Wallpaper ZIP

-Follow EXACTLY. Don't deviate-


1) Go to Control Panel. Remove EVERYTHING Samsung from your Add/Remove section. This will remove all of the drivers etc.

2) Go to your Program Files (x86 if needed) section under 'My Computer'. Delete the 'Samsung Electronics' folder.

3) If you have CCLeaner and are comfortable using the Registry tool, clean your registry of anything Samsung. This will ensure that your new install doesn't use the old stuff.

4) RESTART

5) Install the OLD CL14 SAMSUNG INSTALLER onto your PC. This is important as the NEW installer won't use non-signed packages.

6) RESTART

7) Download the new Recovery and KEEP IT IN ITS DOWNLOADED FORMAT. Take off the MD5 at the end of the file so it ends in TAR.

8) Go back to the Samsung Electronics folder (that you would've deleted earlier) and head to SWUpgrade\Models\Binary. Remove the file inside, probably called "SPH-M900_MR2_DE03_REL_1.tar". Delete it, move it - whatever.

9) Copy the Recovery file you just downloaded into that folder. DO NOT EXTRACT IT.

10) TURN OFF YOUR PHONE and remove the battery for about 10 seconds. Replace battery. DO NOT TURN IT BACK ON.

11) HOLD 'VolDown+Camera+End'. A DOWNLOADING screen should appear.

12) Start the SWUpdate that should be on your desktop. Otherwise, it's back in the Samsung Electronics folder from earlier.

13) FOLLOW THE ONSCREEN INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. I can't stress that enough...

14) After it applies the Recovery file (which is why you placed it in the Binary folder), RESTART YOUR PHONE.

15) Copy the Live Wallpaper ZIP file to your SDCard. DO NOT put it into a folder. Just copy it to the root of the card (meaning it's by itself and not in a folder). DO NOT EXTRACT.

16) POWER OFF YOUR PHONE

17) HOLD 'VolDown+Call(Green)+End(Red)'. This will put you into Recovery Mode. Using the VolUp/VolDown keys, scroll to 'Apply Update.zip' and press the center key. Select the Zip File you just copied to your SDCard. After it processes, RESTART YOUR PHONE.

18) BOOYA! After your phone boots up, you should be able to hit Menu then Wallpapers and you should see Live Wallpapers as a heading.

This doesn't ROOT your phone, only adds Live Wallpapers to your Moment. If you want to run CUSTOM Live's, you'll need to ROOT your phone. After the zip is applied, you can delete it from your SDCard.

I hope this helps. :-)

I used these directions about four days ago. They work.

The only problem I had was Window's not recognizing my phone when it was in download mode. What I did was keep uninstalling the updater/drivers, restarting, installing updater/drivers, restarting, and then trying to flash again. It feels like it takes an hour to restart my computer, so that park sucked. Once Windows recognized my phone everything was done in like 2 minutes.

I followed the instructions and everything worked, as described... The only problem now is my phone and Vista laptop are no longer recognizing each other... My phone is still doing ok with my other computers and my wife's Moment is also not being recognized by the laptop, so it would appear that there is something wrong with the laptop... I tried unistalling the USB driver software and I reinstalled the old installer and it didn't work, then I unistalled that and tried the new installer & that didn't work... Any ideas?

first remove all samsung drivers and related software and delete the samsung folders in program files folder. restart your computer then reinstall sprints new update software. you can remove samsungsimpledl in add/remove programs if you want just leave samsung usb driver 5.2.0.0 there, restart to complete changes. also disable usb debugging on the phone in application > development.

Thanks for the great info, but I still cannot get the update.zip to go through...

this is what I see on my Moment after I click apply sdcard:update.zip

"# Manual Mode #
-- Install from sdcard...
Finding update Package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory)
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted."

I have saved the Zip file onto my desktop then copied to the root of my SDCard. What is going on??? So frustrating! lol Help please?

Make sure you've uninstalled and cleaned out the NEW installer, and reinstall the OLD installer. Do that before copying over the file in the instructions. The NEW installer will not accept instruction from the recovery. The OLD one will.

Follow the instructions without deviation, and you shouldn't have a problem.

Default Moment Dying with certain Live Wallpapers

Ok...anyone having trouble with "Earth Rot" and "Galactic Core" blacking out the Moment on the lock screen and unlock screen function? Have to take battery out and reboot it...both of these were bought in the Market..are they considered "custom wallpapers?"

The "star Field" works flawlessly, but the Earth Rotation if the best one in the Market...would like to know if there is a solution !!

I've noticed a couple of them take up to a minute to load up, but the ones you mention DO load (at least on my Moment). If you give it a minute or so, they should load. Otherwise there may be a problem with the file itself. Delete and re-download.

Thanks for the info !...Market put out an update today for the "Earth Rot" live wallpaper in conjunction with "Earth Maps" that apparently fixed a freezing bug in the Droid..works fine on the Moment now for several hours without freezing the phone..so far so good...btw...I'm using helix in case anyone hears of an issue between the live wallpapers and a launcher in the Moment... Thanx again !

Cool Wallpaper and Battery

... I don't know if anyone else notices...but I have had very little extra battery drain with live wallpapers...can't think of any reason why Sprint should not have included it in the 2.1 update...no screen lag...little battery drain...go figure !

I just did it and it works fine. But im using pandaHome and after this update it started FC and my phone started to lag and I would end up with a black screen and would have to remove my battery. Also my live wallpaper only shows on the lock screen not after i unlock it. Any solutions?

THANKS!

Thank you!! Like others, I tried using the instructions from SDX and went thru many threads trying to figure it out. Found this thread, followed the simple instructions and BAM! I got stars flying at my screen! Thanks again!

Zimlanfire THANK YOU SO MUCH. I did this tonight after work, was a little nervous but after reading how much everyone loved the results with their live wallpaper I had to try it too....I love my Plasma live wallpaper and can't wait for my fiancee to come home from work so I can fix up his phone also....listen to me....I sound like someone that just came home after plastic surgery!

You guys are VERY welcome! :-)

I was the same way -After reading through several "How To" posts on how to get that stuff to work, I was confused, upset, and frustrated. But after I finally figured it out and got it to work, I decided to type something up for everyone else that I saw having trouble too.

That post was getting buried, so I just created a new one so that everyone could find it easier.

Like I said though, FULL credit to the other posters. I just put THEIR advice together into one (hopefully) easy-to-follow set of instructions. I just posted step-by-step, EXACTLY what I did to get it to work on my phone.

Thanks for the praise and support guys! Rock on!

Kiss Now i get it!

I never understood why everyone was so upset about the 2.1 update not giving the Moment eye candy. Now I do! I love these live wallpapers on my Moment! I am so glad I decided to read this topic and then do the fix. Thank you do much for making this understandable and straight forward. I have the plasma live wall paper and it has made me love my phone even more.

Default trackpad

i got a replacement moment from sprint and the trackpad doesnt work at all.. so this is a issue because thats the only way there is to select the options in recovery mode. if anyone knows another way to get the live wallpapers or any custom zip on my phone other than using the recovery mode way please let me know because this really really sucks

I am following these instructions, but when I get to the recovery point, choose apply sdcard:update.zip, I get failed to open /sdcard/update.zip and it does not allow me to choose anything? Any ideas?

THE key to getting Live Wallpapers without rooting is REPLACING the 2.1 updater with the CL14 updater. If you skip that step, replacing the package (.tar file) won't matter because it won't work.

You also HAVE to use the new recovery updater. If you try to use the stock updater, it won't work.

Most of the time that people are having problems, they're skipping through some of the instructions etc. Each step is important and has a specific function to getting the Live's to work without rooting.

If I remember correctly I used the volume up/down button to navigate up/down in recovery mode (but I could be wrong). I hate using the trackpad so I don't think I've ever used it for anything.

I used this about 2 weeks ago on my moment and it works perfect. But make sure you have a full battery and follow the directions word for word and step by step.....DO NOT JUMP AHEAD....
