    Install this update.

    Choose the options you want, ie Live Wallapapers and prepare the file. Install it from Recovery Screen.

    SamDroid Kitchen Mod

    Backup any data you need.

    good call :D did that 2 minutes ago, cooked up a decent rom.

    The nexus live wallpaper runs fine but the galaxy one is really laggy. That just me or is everyones like that?

    The problems with beta, is to expect problems. I installed FE 8 Beta4 on a fresh re-install starting with
    Install JH6 Via Odin
    Install LK208 via Odin
    Install Samdroid Kitchen via recovery
    Install Samdroid Turbo FE8 Beta4. via recovery

    So to be as safe as possible.. I'll install from afresh again. That is the only way you know, any problem is not the new beta, conflicting with the older beta.

    I notice 1 or 2 problems in the Samdroid Turbo Thread on FE8 Beta 6. I'm going away for a few days, so I'm happy with the stability of Beta 4, therefore will wait in case Beta 7 is released.

    The choice is yours. And of course you're better seeking and posting specific Samdroid Turbo questions and answers in he Samdroid Turbo forum.

    You could always check out.

    Beerkan's Quickie Backup Guide

    Although you're right. If the Apps ARE on the SD then a reinstall will pick them up after a reboot or 2.

    Hi beerkan (or anyone else), I followed your root tutorial & it worked fine, but when i tried to install the kitchen mod, the phone tries to boot, i get 4 coloured dots swirling around then exploding into a pretty patern :), this goes on for a while then there's a pause and the phone boots again with the samdroid screen. this just keeps repeating itself. any ideas on what's happening?

    You need to reboot into recovery screen and Wipe the Cache and Dalvik Cache.

    To enter recovery mode manually, power off the phone, then press
    Vol Down + Call + Power On

    Once you clear these caches, the phone will take a couple of minutes to boot for the first time, then you should be good to go.

    Once the phone's working, install the Samdroid Turbo mod.

    Great, It worked, I've also installed samdroid turbo mod. Just some quick questions, I forgot to tick the live wall paper support tab.

    if i re-cook, do i copy the file & replace the one on the micro sd card and install via recovery with frozen eclair still on? or should i also repeat the turbo mod?

    also, what's the difference between Gallery3D - No background version (fastest) [Froyo Stable by Androbot] & Gallery3D - Dynamic background version [Froyo Stable by Androbot]

    Thanks.

    You can re-cook a Samdroid Mod but just with the LiveWallpapers.

    Just select
    Remove Package [x]
    Live Wallapers [x]

    Why not select both Gallery3D - No background version and Gallery3D - Dynamic background, and see for yourself.

    To access LiveWallpapers:-

    Install JH6 Via Odin
    root phone via Odin
    Install Samdroid Kitchen via recovery
    Install Samdroid Turbo FE8 via recovery

    and cook with live wall papers this time.

    Thanks again for your help

    oh dear, having lots of problems on my phone with live wall papers. I've had to turn it off.

    Phone became very slow, kept having to take battery out and restart phone because I couldn't get past lock screen (phone would not unlock & then just freeze)

    I even had samdroid turbo installed.

    I have just purchased the Samsung Galaxy Portal and miss not having live wallpapers, I'm not too good at all the intricate stuff, how can I get live wallpapers onto my phone without knackering it? :) Thanks
