    Okay I was able to get the animated live wallpapers working on the 2.1 ROM (only Nexus does not work).

    Disclaimer: This can brick your phone and should only be done if you know what you are doing and are willing to take the risk, I bear no responsibility for your actions.

    Directions.

    1. Download this zip file, it contains the necessary lib files and the live wallpaper files.
    wallpaper files - MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    lib files - MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    2. Unzip these files and place on your SDCARD. (I created 2 folders one named libs and the other app). You need to place the four Live wallpaper files in the app folder and the lib files need to be in the lib folder.

    3. Restart your phone in the recover console.
    4. Select mount sub-menu
    5. mount sdcard and system
    6. type busybox cp /sdcard/libs/* /system/lib
    7. type busybox cp /sdcard/app/* /system/app
    8. unmount both sdcard and system
    9. restart your phone



    Enjoy Brought to you by P3Droid​

    P3Droid,

    Since you got the Live Wallpapers working (great job) can you possiblty make the new DeskClock app installable by mere mortals(unrooted) like a normal app? I hate the current MultiMedia Dock clock and would love to have the new 2.1 version (deskclock.apk)

    Since it has a companion ODEX file I assume it can't be instaled like a standalone APK file.

    Would donate to the cause for an normal installable app for this :)

    I hope that was sarcasm.

    If not, do NOT try this. It's for users who are running the 2.1 rom ONLY.

    Do not use the lib files above to get the animated wallpapers!

    Instead, use these lib files, which actually work [no force closes][Nexus wallpaper doesn't work =( ] and that don't mess up your audio jack. If you have already done it with the above method, I don't know of a way to fix the audio jack, what I had to do was to restore back to a nandroid backup I made this morning. If you don't have one, you can restore to this backup by thegeektern, which is the 2.1 update with the fixes for the carrier, live wallpapers, the VZW eri, and the 705 number text message removed:



    Lib files: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    or
    Nandroid 2.1 backup with all current fixes: BCDMRS-20091221-1827.zip
