    Googling has given me NO answer. SADFACE.

    I don't think it's possible automatically (other than the two preinstalled options), but I'd like to navigate to the folder they're in and possible add more manually that way.

    Any clue if this can be done, and if so, which system folder to look in??

    If the charging wallpapers work the same as the live wallpapers you will need to find an apk and replace the charging wallpapers apk from /system/app. When I rooted my HTC Evo that was what people were doing to get the leaf floating in water live wallpaper.

    This may or may not work without reflashing your system image/Rom.

    The alternate would be to create an app for the charging wallpaper you want, such that it installs the files on the internal storage and redirects the system to use it instead of the water wallpaper.

    I agree it seems contradictory...charging the phone while using additional battery life to show the pretty graphics of the water... Is there a way to disable it? I am on Broken Out Rom using Go Launcher, but can not figure out how to disable the charging wallpaper...

    I just removed the apk files in the Broken Out Even Less Rom, you can probably do the same with a root explorer

    Broken out shouldn't have the charging wallpapers.

    Confirmed. I guess I did not re-check after flashing BrokenOut 2.0. But, Spectrum is charging right now and the only wallpaper is the standard one I have. Sweet!

    Was not sure if you did or not, but I know I did not leave them in.

    Yes, go into Wallpapers, charging wallpapers, there should be a checkbox to turn them off. Then you can go into App manager and disable them if you want, just make sure you turn them off first or you'll get an error message whenever the phones plugged in.

    Has anyone tried adding the night city scene .apk to a v6 Rom? It is part of v7. So technically, the answer to the original question must be yes since LG added a new one in v7; however no one has apparently figured out the exact steps yet to create one.
