    Ok so I downloaded the helix app and I love it. It says it does live walls but I'm not understanding how to do this. I'm assuming I have to get special walls but where? If someone could break it down for me id appreciate it.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have this option. When I long press and select walls it gives me three options 1gallery 2wallpaper gallery (home) 3wallpaper gallery (helix) when I select helix there is on wallpaper listed. An orange leaf. But when I select it the image is static. It doesn't do anything? Where do I get more live papers at and I should also mention this is the helix from the app market.

    Are you rooted? I believe you have to have a 2.1 ROM installed to use Live Wallpapers. Either that or wait for the offical 2.1 to get here.

    I don't really know anything about rooting, but I am thinking that the helix live wallpapers option might require it being on a rooted phone?

    It supports live wallpapers (Interactivity). As of right now the only way to have live walls on your Droid is to root it. After the Droid 2.1 update, EVERYONE will have them. Till then....NO LIVE WALLPAPER FOR YOU!

    Edit: The Helix Launcher will not magically bring you live walls...only support them if you have them! Same with any app on the market that says live walls.
