    I rooted my Prevail a while ago and used Root App Remover to remove a couple of system apps including the live wallpapers (didn't use them much). Well now I've had a change of heart and want to get them back without having to reset to the factory settings. What can I do?

    I'm sure there is a file somewhere in this forum where you can download and just look for that specific file and copy and pasting it where you deleted it from. I did that for the googlemaps.apk and got it back that way..

    here is live wallpaper.apk and livewallpaperpicker.apk

    in case you need both. just unzip and place into /system/app
    then reboot.

    I have an unrooted prevail. When I recieved the gingerbread update it removed live wallpapers that came preinstalled & gave me the worst live wallpapers ever made in place of them. Is there anywhere I can get these wallpapers back?

    Looks like we all got our wires a bit crossed here, guys ;) :).

    Moving this thread, since it was originally discussing root-related issues is standard operating procedure and we regret any misunderstandings as a result of doing so.

    But it looks like bedfordallgood needs a thread in the main, non-rooted area, so I'll working on moving your post into its own thread in the main Prevail area.

    Give me a minute to do this.

    Thanks and sorry for the mixup.

    Is it my imagination or is the title at the top live wallpapers? I did a google search for preinstalled live wallpapers on the prevail & this thread came up. Even google thinks this thread is about live wallpapers & not rooting! LOL

    LOL, no, you are right ;) :).

    Its just that the original poster / thread creator basically sets the tone for "gist" of the thread and where it might best belong. Although that sometimes does change as the discussion in a thread evolves.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Also, did you see that I made you your own thread here:

    Cheers!

    Again, I apologize for the inconvenience that may have been caused. I'm just trying to straighten things up and get them organized in our section. ;)




    Thank you Scary for starting a new thread for Bedfordallgood. :thumbup:
