    The ones you're referring to are on the phone memory, not the card.

    These instructions are for Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 4.0.4 "Ice Cream Sandwich"

    Using Root Browser Lite app I was able to navigate to the following directory:

    system\app\

    In that directory look for a file titled PhotoWall.apk
    By pressing it, the Root Browser app asks what you'd like to do with it, cancel, view or uninstall. Chose "View."

    The Root Browser app will display the directories within that file. Then go to:
    res\raw
    and, voila, you're there. You'll see all the stock wall papers saved there as jpg images.

    The problem is, I tried pasting stuff in there and nothing pasted.

    It seems that the Root Browser app allows me to see what's inside the PhotoWall.apk file (almost looks like a zipped file in Windows) but it doesn't let me add to it.

    If someone can figure out how to add to that location, please let me know.
