Live Wallpapers without root?

    I read somewhere that there is a zip file you can put on your phone and it "unlocks" the live wallpapers as an option. It was somewhere on these forums be it moment, eris, or hero. I would assume if it was on another phones page the concept would be the same. Any info on this my fellow Hero comrades?

    there is no Live Wallpaper for un-rooted phones.

    Clarification - Live wallpapers are native to the Nexus one and the Droid incredible and I believe the upcoming Evo.

    Mostly because of the Snapdragon processor is my guess.

    Even when rooted, live wallpapers don't work too well. Our phones capabilities limit it. You can run them rooted but they keep reverting back to regular wallpaper.
