Release: Droid Life Black Live Wallpaper

For those of you not diggin’ our white live wallpaper, we’ve got the black version ready for your dark enjoyment.  It’s still equipped with the white and pink LEDs plus the DL logo, so make sure to check this one out if you are rooted and ready for something new.  Oh, and to all of you battery crazies, this dark version should fit your needs.

Instructions for installation…

1.  You have to be rooted.  (Instructions for rooting here.)
2.  Download this file to your SD card:  LiveWallpapers.apk
3.  Open Root Explorer and find the LiveWallpapers.apk you just downloaded.
4.  Long press on the file and select “move.”
5.  Navigate to /system/app/ and press the Mount R/W button at the top.
6.  Then press “paste” in the bottom left corner.
7.  If it asks you to overwrite a previous LiveWallpapers.apk, allow it to.
8.  Long press on your pasted LiveWallpapers.apk and select “Permissions.”
9.  Next to User, check the boxes for “Read” and “Write” and then “OK.”
10.  Hit the Mount R/O button at the top and back out of Root Explorer.
11.  Reboot your phone.
12.  Open up your live wallpaper settings and select the “Nexus” live wallpaper.
13.  Done!

    Great wallpapers and very easy to install, love to see some more,
    I’ve missed seeing the free live wallpapers on here, thanks! Now if we can just get a Droid Pro live wallpaper apk, that would be truly awesome!

    I think I remember looking at the site once before, which is why I wasn’t questioning WHY the pink theme, but if there could be a different color. The pink used for the wallpaper seems much brighter than the pink used on the website.

    It’s under the “Optional Scripts” part. I tried putting the APK file in with Astro this way but it wouldn’t let me paste it. So it just allows you to look at your root directory. Ended up downloading Root Explorer.

    No FC issues at all. As for those asking for a non-pink themed one, get over it.

    I'm getting a force close when I select Nexus. Any ideas?

    ow did you make it work? I tried it on my GFs but I couldn't get past the boot. All I got was the black screen and flickering. I gave up because I went back and read some more and found I couldn't load this on the beast.

    does this work on the motorola Devour

    Downloaded it with a problem. No FC issues at all. As for those asking for a non-pink themed one, get over it. Have you not taken a look at this site before? Pink and Black are the main themes of this site. If Kellex were to change the Live Wallpaper, it wouldn't be DL. I think it looks great. Thanks for doing this. Don't change a thing.

      “Those of you” is only me. I'll take the credit for asking for a different color, and it was meant with no disrespect. But yes, I think I remember looking at the site once before, which is why I wasn't questioning WHY the pink theme, but if there could be a different color. The pink used for the wallpaper seems much brighter than the pink used on the website.

  • schmaltzy

    How's about one that isn't pink?????

  • iamthewalrus2211

    Every time i try and select the nexus wp i get into a fc issue.

    • R9onaldo

      same here what is the prob anyone now how to fix this

  • schmaltzy

    Running Bugless Beast…….I enabled the God Mode script which allows me to get into the root directory with astro. There is no Mount R/W option. Can I still make this work???

    • azurikai

      how exactly do you enable the God Mode script?

      • schmaltzy

        With Bugless Beast installed, download Terminal Emulator and run it. Type “su” then “godmode”. There are a list of the scripts at the link below. It's under the “Optional Scripts” part. I tried putting the APK file in with Astro this way but it wouldn't let me paste it. So it just allows you to look at your root directory. Ended up downloading Root Explorer.

    Once you black you never go back!

  • pyroholtz

    The 'battery comment' you made Kellex, is only relevant to those with AMOLED screens, not us Moto Droid users. I guess you're already catering to the Incredible and N1 users…? Haha, just giving you a hard time. BTW, the Black scheme looks better IMHO anyway.

    • kellex

      Glad that you actually point that out, but I have to bust everyone's chops. Because believe it or not, I got more than a few comments immediately concerning white.

      But I appreciate you bustin' my chops too hah. :P

  • Mrpicolas

    Still runnin bugless I see

    • kellex

      Checking out DarkEdge this minute. Loading the theme now. :)

      • Mrpicolas

        Dark edge run on cyanogen then?

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          I hope so, because I am about to get the newest Cyan just for it's themes lol That is how it works right??? lol Just when I think I understand haha
          Thanks

          • nkhex19

            I think the new Cyanogen 5.0.7 should be released for Droid any day now. I believe there is some beta versions out there. As far as Dark Edge I think this is the official forum for it: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/xeudoxus/43628
