    You need to select the live wallpapers option from the "select wallpapers rom" menu?

    touch & hold the desktop until the menu appears then choose wallpaper (from memory so not 100% sure of the exact wordings!)

    Is the phone rooted? Do you have the LiveWallpapers App installed, not just LiveWallpapers.

    The LiveWallpapers app is NOT inclued in any standard firmware from Samsung. You need to install LiveWallpapers usually by rooting your phone first.

    Check out my Root guide, skip to the Rooting Your Phone follow these steps, then install LeshaK's Kitchen Mod, and include LiveWallpapers.
