    Hey guys,

    Watch this incredible launcher from the XDA-guys. Search the market for "Helix" and weather you got 2.1 or 2.0.1 install HelixLauncher2 or Helixlauncher. The Helixlauncher 2 contains the 2.1 app drawer, working FINE in landscape AND brings live-wallpaper interaction

    Here Screenshots from the 2.0 - Version:

    I dont even know where to find the LWP's I long pressed on the screen, selected wallpapers and found:
    Pictures
    wallpaper gallery-home
    wallpaper gallery-helixlauncher

    I selected the helixlauncher one and it only shows 1 background...and its of a leaf, I applied it and it was not a live wallpaper.

    Any help would be greatly helpful

    LWPs are not included with helixlauncher... it's an APK on its own... and you will probably need a custom (rooted) ROM to use them...
