    [update 4.7.10] How to modify your live wallpapers...with nyyLW.apk working on UD9.8

    First to do this you must have root...second..this is just what worked for me...I take no responsibility for any mistakes you make that might screw up your droid.

    Since I posted pictures of my modified LiveWallpapers.apk I have had many request to help others do the same. So I figured I would just put it all in a post and then share with everyone.

    First, make sure you can actually use LiveWallpapers. I believe you need to be on a 2.1 based ROM...but I could be wrong. Most likely, if you can...it is already installed.

    First you need to get a copy of the apk. easiest way is by using Xeudoxus' xUltimate script ([app/script] xUltimate v1.2.4 **UPDATED 02/17/10**) just run the exe...and once it connects to your phone press 1 enter. You will find all your system apps in a folder called orig apps.

    Find LiveWallpapers.apk and copy it to a new folder (this way if you screw up...you just recopy from that original).

    Download a program called 7zip

    Using 7Zip "extract here" to have access to the contents of the apk...do not unzip. Now you should see both the apk as well as 2 new folders and 3 files.

    Open the folder "res" then the folder "drawable hdpi"

    Find your background and open it with a graphics editor. You can download Photo Pos Pro for from from Download.com. Make your edits to the background and save the file and keeping the name intact.

    Right-click on the original LiveWallpaper.apk and select "open archive". Click on res and then on drawable hdpi. you should now see the directory in which the backgrounds reside.

    Drag your new file over this and drop it. You should be asked to allow. Once you click yes...find the folder with the up arrow in the menu bar of the widow and navigate out of the apk. Then close the window.

    Copy the LiveWallpapers.apk to your SD card so we can push them back to your system/apps.

    Once the file is on the sd ...boot into recovery ( i never move files into or out of the system when booted up. you can cause memory problems, instability or worse!)

    go to mount options and mount your system and then mount your sdcard

    then open an adb shell window and then type:

    # cd sdcard
    # busybox cp -R LiveWallpapers.apk /system/app/
    # exit

    Then unmount your system and your sdcard and reboot. MAKE SURE YOU UNMOUNT BOTH system and sdcard

    to change the color of your LED lights....

    open the folders we extracted earlier and navigate to the res/raw folder. Inside is a file nexus.rs. Drag it out to your pc and open it with Notepad++.

    find this section.

    void setColor(int c) {
    if (State->mode == 1) {
    // sholes red
    color(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.8f);
    } else if (c == 0) {
    // red
    color(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.8f);
    } else if (c == 1) {
    // green
    color(0.0f, 0.8f, 0.0f, 0.8f);
    } else if (c == 2) {
    // blue
    color(0.0f, 0.4f, 0.9f, 0.8f);
    } else if (c == 3) {
    // yellow
    color(1.0f, 0.8f, 0.0f, 0.8f);
    }
    }

    replace the sholes red part with bold text:
    void setColor(int c) {
    if (State->mode == 1) {
    // sholes blue
    color(0.0f, 0.4f, 0.9f, 0.8f);

    Good Luck!

    Edit....here is what I did with mine
    Ver.1/Ver.2/Ver.3


    If you like this...I have attached a copy to this post...just download and rename and UNZIP...apk is inside the zip!...now works on UDv9.8. I have removed the other versions as they only work on outdated roms.

    Big thanks to srtfool32 for the base wallpaper and for adding this to the UDv9.8 repository!

    Good instructions thanks. To keep everything in one place, why not edit the op and include the screenshots you mentioned at the top of the post?
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    android 2.1 has live "moving" wallpapers. Many are interactive. See the blue streaks in my picture? This are moving blue LEDs that move up/down/left/right. There are dozens of others in the market.

    You must be running a 2.1 droid which means you have to root and load a ROM.
