    Might want to try Smoked Glass or Simply Stunning. I have tried both and work fine. Simply Stunning is 2.1 and is the best.

    I am running 7.9 now for 10 mins or so. Was able to try out several live wall papers...no issues. I am still able to OC to 1GHz...I used the update.zip method.

    Maybe redownload and re-install?

    They won't work using the tgz file. You have to use adb and push the file using the commands provided on the alldroid page.

    Extract the zip, and copy the system folder inside to your sd card.
    Copy the commands below. (ctrl-c)
    Open cmd.exe
    Start adb shell with your phone hooked up, and ready to go (sd card not mounted).
    Right click, Paste.
    Hit enter a couple times.
    Done and done. Won't work if busybox isn't installed.


    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/app/LiveWallpapers.apk /system/app/LiveWallpapers.apk
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/app/LiveWallpapersPicker.apk /system/app/LiveWallpapersPicker.apk
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/app/LiveWallpapers.apk /system/app/LiveWallpapers.apk
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/app/MagicSmokeWallpapers.apk /system/app/MagicSmokeWallpapers.apk
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/app/VisualizationWallpapers.apk /system/app/VisualizationWallpapers.apk
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/framework/framework.jar /system/framework/framework.jar
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/lib/libRS.so /system/lib/libRS.so
    busybox cp /sdcard/system/lib/librs_jni.so /system/lib/librs_jni.so
    sync
    reboot

    I had the same problem with the live wallpapers force closing on the selection screen. Did you use the rom.tgz file? This is the one I first used and it didn't work for me. I then had to push the files manually to my phone. But first! I had to go back to how the phone was before. So I had to do a Nandroid Restore with the backup I made before I used the rom.tgz update, (you did make a backup right, :) ) Then download the LiveWallpapers.zip attached below. Extract it to your SDK Tools folder and you should now have a folder named 'system'.

    -Open cmd in windows, change to your tools directory,
    -Reboot the phone in recovery and mount /system. (you can do this differently but this is how I did it, I am too lazy to type. You can also use Root Explorer to mount /system as rw if you still don't feel like typing or rebooting.)
    -adb push system /system
    7 files should be pushed to their respective folders
    -adb shell
    -su
    -reboot


    EDIT: BTW, when you are doing the Nandroid Restore, you only have to restore /system since that was the only partition touched by the rom.tgz

    I'm confused. I manually installed these wallpapers using TE on my phone running SmokedGlass v4.5 and they work great. Last night my GF wanted me to set her phone up like mine so I installed the SmokedGlass v4.5 and manually installed the LiveWallpapers.zip exactly as i did to m my phone, but the wallpapers just FC on hers.
