    Obviously not on the sdcard. The one default wallpaper is in the drawable-hdpi folder of the framework-res.apk file. But I cannot find any of the others. ARGH!

    Someone? Anyone? ...

    Holy crap! I finally found them! They're hiding in the .apk of the Launcher file. DUH!!! (In the drawable-hdpi folder, to be a little more specific.)

    No. It's just I like some of these wallpapers, but with new ROMs, sometimes they go away. Who knows what'll happen when 2.1 comes knocking. I want to archive them for future use. Or edit them and make variations. ;)

    Besides the 16 on the Droid, there are quite a few other ones in there that are 0kb in size. Searching those names in Google I found this flickr page that has all of them including the non existent ones that are just names in the launcher apk.

    edit...the link would help.

    I had that link once upon a time, and figured I could find it again if I Googled it. I just wanted to know where the heck these wallpapers were hiding. Thanks for the link though... :)
