    yes, I was already running live wallpapers before this. You must be rooted to have it. (Getting rooting is very easy on the Moment).

    To get one of the custom made ones I posted, you don't install them like you do for most apk's through the apk installer, you have to use the method he has posted on the first post. For me, I had trouble at first, (as you might see on page 2 of the thread) but the problem was solved when I wasgiven the Nexus 1 stock live wallpapers.

    I see that it's a knockoff of the N1 live wallpaper. Is this new version recalibrated? Or does it suffer from the same misalignment problems when touching the background?

    Ill have to upload it when I get to work today. For some reason, uploading is disallowed on my phone

    Update:

    Sorry, it says that the file is too big to upload on here :thinking:

    The limit is like 146.5 KB and the file is like 900 something KB's. I tried and it didn't let me upload it.

    Update 2:

    Hope, this works :)

    I got this far (buzzing it right now, shouldn't mess with the file system):

    You can install the LiveWallpaper.apk provided by Eazail70x7 in the system/app folder via root explorer. Once it is installed nothing will happen. You will have to change the permissions to make it work. Just long press the apk and select permissions: check: user- read and write, then group-read, others-read, then ok. Voila, now you have the stock Nexus live wallpapers and others(if you already have some running) wallpapers available. :D

    This is as far as I got so far but I haven't tried adb(never worked for me on my old XP). Good luck my friends. Someone take it from here or learn me haha

    BTW, thanks to Eazail70x7 for the working apk. If you need root explorer pm me.

    I freaking did it! I don't really know how I did it though ahaha, Cowboys FTW! I did all the methods but I think adb was the trick. If I can do this it can be replicated so someone else do this and post better instructions. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Heck yes!

    I told you lol. Just gotta keep trying and somehow, it works. I still don't know how exactly I got it to work. Once I got it, my reaction was exactly the same as yours haha.

    From Paininflikta from SDX:

    rename the custom wallpaper to LiveWallpapers.apk put on the root of your sdcard, reboot in recovery mode, open command prompt on your computer and open up an adb session. everyone should know how to open an adb session by now im just going to write out the commands.

    grant su permissions then use these commands to install these live wallpapers on your phone. you must use the exact spelling of the apk! or else you will get an error.

    #install /sdcard/LiveWallpapers.apk /system/app then hit enter
    #
    you should see another # sign if done correctly.

    Enjoy and of course SDX is where its all at. :D

    Only 3post, sorry bro, no noobs! J/K hahaha Google Android SDK and install it where ever you wish. Move it/install to C:\ directly. PM me or hit me up here and we'll go from there, I gotta actually work now. :)

    Now that I think of it you can also do this with root explorer. Hit me up if you need the apk.
