    I had the same idea, but this isn't the exact animation from the boot loader. Its nice but not nice enough. Thanks though.

    I went into files in the launcher and selected the folder that I downloaded the file to and just clicked on it... then it asked me what to use to open it... i selected package installer.

    Strange, I try to download the file and I get an error message stating that there is not enough space. Any ideas?

    I saved it to the SD card and installed it from there but I don't understand why I would get an error message when downloading to the phone with 16GB of capacity.

    It works great for me but I still prefer the stock bootloader to this one. I'll use it for awhile anyway though.

    Yeah the stock is a bit better. Did you know you can change the size of it as well?

    I downloaded mine doing the email to myself routine. Clicked the link to download and it went into my live wallpapers. Weird how it dont work the same on all these phones.

    If you have it saved to your SD card, look it up using the Files app and just click on it. That should install it and then it should show up in your Live Wallpapers. That worked for me. Let me know.

    I got it to install via Astro File Manager, from the Market.

    So if anyone wants to install the Live Theme, its as easy as putting file in phone, loading Astro, and selecting theme to install.

    Is there any chance of getting this uploaded again to the hosting site so the link is valid?? Reason is, now that CM 6.1 has gone Stable, Benny (theme porter) is hard at work at getting numerous themes updated from when CM 6.0 went Stable...this wallpaper is part of the Gala S theme which can be found here: [THEME PACK] CM6.1 Theme Collection - CyanogenMod Forum

    I do have a special need for this wallpaper and also (this maybe a stretch) is it possible of uploading the bootanimation that this wallpaper once was, whats the chances of that??

    Thank you very much!!!
