    The two above and Live Waterpaper. Image of your choosing + ripple effect = prettytastic.

    Wave live wallpaper is great, too, but a bit busy.

    Earth Live seems to be a good option...at least for today.

    I like the Starfield 3D LWP in the market. Minor bugs but a classic look. Double-tap to go to hyperspeed! :D

    The NexusMod does work on Pete's BB v0.9 (i.e., you must be rooted).

    Also, many of the other roms have the NexusMod wallpaper incorporated. My favorite is the Nexus version of the neural network but with the dark Droid background.

    The rotating earth and starfield wallpapers are good too. There's one bokeh wallpaper that's really good looking but it lags the hell out of the phone.

    But most of the LWP in the market suck.

    Yes but I felt it were safer to assume he wasn't rooted. If he were rooted, odds are he'd be able to find his own wallpapers without posting a question about it. Just a theory..

    Under standard VZW 2.1 update, nexusmod wont work..

    There's a great new one called Mario Live Wallpaper (or something), where Mario plays/runs through randomly generated levels (it uses the Super Mario World sprites) ... it's pretty epic, I've been using it for a few days, however I'm pretty sure it's taking a bit of a hit on my battery ...oh well, it's so dang cool.

    I'm a fan of Pixel Zombies, Seeds of life, and Aquarium :)

    Of course there is the mario lwp but that destroys your battery.

    I don't use one, drains battery and slows the device down.

    I agree. I need all the battery life I can get & dancing pixels doesn't do any thing for me.

    There is also PongClock Live Wallpaper. Classic game of pong, where you can watch simply, or join the game at any time. It also lets you manipulate a variety of settings.

    I also like Striker Live Wallpaper. Its for soccer fans, but it has a few players kicking a soccer ball around the field. Tapping the screen anywhere, kicks the ball to that spot, while the players chase it down and continue playing.

    For some reason I can't upload images at work through the proxy. But on my EVO, the Mario Live wallpaper consumes between 2-4% of battery power. Idle time consumes 40%, calls 20%, even just the screen consumes 4%. I can spare another 2-4% for a badass wallpaper like that.

    Let me add, I don't even have my USB charger. I charge my phone 20 minutes to work and 20 minutes back, maybe 15 minutes to/from sports on the weekends and it's held up fine. I need a new charger since I lost mine but it's not a pressing issue. The wallpaper doesn't change this at all.

    If my battery went from 100 to 0%, the last thing I would think is that I wish I didn't have that wallpaper up so I could have 4% left. Instead, I think I'm stupid for not having charged it earlier.

    I 2nd that, I was coming in here to post that actually. Nothing really compares. It's awesome and doesn't use a lot of battery. I'm even using it over the mario one.
