    Where is the location of the default wallpapers in a Droid 2?

    I can't find them anywhere in my file manager... :)

    Long press on any blank area on the home screen. Wallpaper, widgets etc. will pop up.

    I believe it's stored in the default launcher.apk. Could be wrong though

    Edit: Sorry, OP are you trying to simply change the wallpaper or pull it from your phone?

    No I meant where the default wallpapers are stored in the system... which directory or folder. :)

    What are you using as your launcher ADW, LP? Or maybe stock, it's just named something else?

    If you have the wallpaper on your droid can you take a screenshot of it. Maybe I can find it.

    then look in data/app for ADW something (not sure of the name when installed, I use LP) then look in the res folder and after that not sure.

    Post a screenshot.

    I cant find it, and I have to run out. I found ADW in data/data/org.adw.launcher, but there are no wallpaper files in there.

    Also, it's not an ADW wallpaper, it's one of the ones that came stock on the Droid 2, when you tap menu/wallpapers

    I'll try later. Thanks for the help!

    If you don't have the stock launcher on your phone anymore then I don't think you can pull it.

    You'ld need the stock launcher or a pic of the wallpaper.

    I have looked high and low in my file manager. No luck at all. I would think those wallpaper images would have to be stored somewhere on the phone. :(

    I'll keep digging. If anyone has any ideas, thanks in advance. :)

    They are stored in the phone, just not as simple as being in a directory out in the open. It'll be inside of a .res file
