    So I downloaded a couple different colors of the Nexus style Live wallpapers, and I want to install them with the Cyanogen 5.0.5 i am running. Is there a certain way to do this or is it as simple as putting the files on the sd card and extracting the .zip?

    The LWP should be in an apk form, no? What's inside the zip file?

    And where did you get them, I'm missing my leaves in the water wallpaper. :eek:

    I got them from this thread and inside of the .zip file is META-INF folder and a system folder. Inside of the system folder is the live wallpaper.apk file. The other folder has a couple files named update-binary and updater-script, as well as a firstupdate.zip file.

    Any more input? I have two wallpapers I want to install, but they both have their own LiveWallpapers.apk file. Not exacty sure what to do with them..When I look at the info in Astro, it only has an option for Uninstall.. not Install.
