    Does anyone know why wallpaper scrolling is disabled on the Galaxy Note? I used to have a skyrocket with MultiPicture Live Wallpaper, with pictures transitioning between home screens. But i noticed it doesn't work on the Note because there's no wallpaper scrolling. Anyone know of a work around? Thanks!

    It is Very annoying. My wife got the Samsung galaxy skyrocket 2 and it does all that. But this 400 dollar phone can't?!?! I tried ADW Launcher, golauncher, photoshop mobile, wallpaper wizardrii, crop wallpaper. All apps on the market. If anyone knows how to solve this let me know, im very annoyed with it. Oh and just found out that the International one can do it... Soooo disappointing and not feeling good about buying this thing and it does all this other stuff but can't do something as simple as that... I don't believe it. So if anyone knows how to get it to work or knows a trick to do, share the knowledge!

    The launcher ashell let's you use wallpaper scrolling, kinda, you have play with it, but after a minute or two of messing with the picture size and it works.

    So this skyrocket update affected the note? I will try the ashell, but I really wish samsung or att would release an update to fix this issue.

    I just went back to Launcher Pro, so my wallpaper scrolling is back.

    I tried using launcher pro and set it to allow scrolling and it didn't work for me. I tried with stock wallpaper, pictures I took with the phone, and downloaded wallpapers. But im about tired of trying to mess with it and hope they release an update to fix it or hope they switch to ICS.

    I think Launcher Pro does it by default, so that's odd that it wouldn't work for you.

    Yeah it does but I got it to work once but once I opened a game it stopped working and couldn't get it to work again. Oh well guess I'll try to be patient and wait for a update or ICS lol :eek:

    I think they turned it off so they could have endless scrolling, like when you reach the far left screen it keeps going around to the far right screen.

    True, but I think they could make it so that the wallpaper jumps to the right too, granted it would be a pain to do and not look as "pretty" lol but I love the phone and it is great. It's just that minor little detail, but nothing is perfect ;) still an awesome phone and wouldn't trade it for anything... Except the International one :D

    That Golauncher ex works great, just have to use zedge to set wallpaper or a different wallpaper app, otherwise when you select a picture in gallery it forces you to crop the picture. I will try with wizardrii and crop wallpaper apps to see if it it will work and post if it does or not. Thanks for that link!

    *crop wallpaper app works great with the golauncher ex. *

    Here is what I did: Downloaded ADW launcher (my favorite), scrolling did not work. Then I used PicSpeed Wallpaper App and applied one of their wallpapers and now it works (scrolls) in ADW. When I switch back to stock launcher still does not work, but ADW Launcher is what I use anyway (I just got this phone and noticed the scroll issue, I'm in in process of setting it up). Not sure if using PicSped will make it scrollable with other launchers but it dId with ADW.
