i love quick boot. you can also use the "add to home screen" menu to add a "reboot" or "recovery" shortcut, too.
don't know about 0.7.9 but you can get 1.0 here: Index of /pete/BuglessBeast
and here: AllDroid - View topic - [ROM] Bugless Beast V1.0 (2/20/10)
just to be sure. you did reboot after adding the modified build.prop?
and pete has bugless beast .8 up which includes the live walls.

i know a lot are losing root with this, but i haven't. i did the manual install through adb on BB .7 and haven't had any issues with losing root.
