Hello there:)

New village idiot here.

Recently got the Droid (-love it-) as my first smart phone and I'm (really) clueless about some of the stuff regarding customization.

First off, does the Droid support gifs? I tried one as a background and it didn't work. I don't know if that was because I didn't properly transfer them to my phone or because of the Droid.

Then.. If i DO successfully manage to transfer a scrumptious image, is there any way it can be changed into the wallpaper WITHOUT being cropped?

Look at this guy. Could you stand cropping him?

Bumping topic to see if there any other volunteers willing to share some tips?

~other question: If I do ever dare to tread the line that bounds the rooted and unrooted, would it be possible to use gifs?

I sent all my "treasures" to a samsung user and they worked... *wipes tear*

Oh motorola... Didn't you ever consider supporting gifs?

Yes, you can install a rom that supports animated gifs. Android currently supports regular gifs. The next android update will support animated gifs on fast enough phones. Don't know if they'd play as a home background though.
