    When I save scenes where are they stored?

    I haven't rooted yet and explorer doesn't seem to find the saved scenes. So I suspect they are stored in Data or someplace I can't see until I root.

    Sorry I wan't clear. I mean where does it save the files for the saved scene. As in what directory on the phone. I assume they are saving some type of config file and perhaps a copy of the wallpaper since you can delete the orig photo and the scene will still find the image.

    OK this is a tough one. I am now rooted and running root explorer to do a search can't find anything. I searched for "scene" and the name of one of my scenes assuming there would be a file named the same as my scene. Nothing..... Strange.

    They get beemed into your brain. Maybe it reads your mind when reloading thelm.

    I found them.
    I did a du on root then added a bunch of scenes and did another du.
    That told me which file changed sizes using a diff command of the two du command outputs.

    The files are in
    /data/data/com.htc.launcher

    ./databases contains the database for the settings
    ./files contains the wallpaper images which are named home_wallpaper_XX where XX is an increasing number
    ./lib is empty for me
    ./shared_prefs contains launcher.xml and WidgetPackageManager.xml not sure what these are need to have a look.

    its much easier if you have titanium or somekind of back up program... just back up [desktop]htc sense 1.00 and it will save your desktop scenes

    What's easier ? I was just trying to determine the file location so I could see how sense stores the details and if they could be manipulated manually.
