    What rom did you install? I thought all the cm7 roms had Live Wallpapers.

    Anyway you will not be able to install it like a normal app. You will need to use a root enabled file manager (I like root brower but there are a few on the market) to copy the livewallpaperpicker.apk from your sd card into the /system/app folder.

    Or you can also use ADB to push the app into the /system/app directory but the first option is probably easier.

    Hmmm... Maybe a bad flash. Since you came from another Rom did you do a full wipe of the phone in recovery before flashing Backside (Boot, Data, System, Cache & Dalvik Cache)? I would redownload the rom, check md5, wipe phone and reflash rom and gapps.

    I run BACKside and the livewallpaper option works fine. I access is by hitting menu button, selecting more and wallpaper and then it asks if I want a Live Wallpaper or Gallary Wallpaper. Sounds like something didn't take right with your flash

    Yeah ahen I installed my rom it got stuck in a bootloop so I had to factory reset and stuff I didn't know what I was doing. I may have messed something up on the way. But if its gonna take all that again them il just deal with the loss lol thanks though!

    Does your SDCard have alot of data on it? The SDCard that comes with the Optimus V is 2gb. If you have alot stored on it you will need to back the data up to a pc so you can use the card to flash a rom or use another SDCard.

    If you haven't put anything on it and you are sure there's nothing on it you can't lose you might want to try formatting the card in settings as it may not be properly formatted or you might have a bad sdcard which might be where your issues started.

    If you are unsure I would pick up a new sdcard as they are fairly cheap

    Make sure you go to settings/storage and select Unmount SD card before removing it. Once you have the data backed up on you PC you can format (this will wipe all data) the uSD card in the PC by going to Start/Computer/right click on the uSD card. Select the format option, select the default setting. Once you have formatted it put it back in your phone and mount it. Then go to the BACKside thread. All the info you need is in the First post.
    Once you have the ROM installed you can go back to settings/storage/select erase SD card. Unmount it and put it back into your PC. Transfer all your data that you backed up. Put it back into phone.

    Note: If you did not make a backup of your system in the recovery (this is called a nandroid) because you did not have enough space, then while you have room on the uSD card make a backup before you try to install the ROM. This will add a folder called clockworkmod. Make sure this is put in the Folder you made when you backed up your phone on the PC. Do this before you erase the uSD card. Until you can get a bigger uSD card, if you mess something up just put the sd card into the PC and transfer the clockworkmod folder back into the uSD card. Insert it back into the phone and get into you recovery and select the restore option. All things Good again.

    The weird skipping sound is not normal. You should go to the BACKside thread and post that problem so it can be fixed in the next update.
