Download: Leaked R2-D2 Live Wallpapers

The boot animation for the special edition R2-D2 Droid 2 leaked last night and now the live wallpapers are out.  There are 4 of them in total and are almost all well worth at least a quick look.  There might not be any surprises left on this device by the time we see it at the end of September.  Oh well?

Video Action:

Wallpaper Pack:  r2d2wallpapers.zip

Individual Files: [Millenium Falcon]  [Lightspeed]  [R2D2]  [Spaceslug]

Install as you would any other .apk file.  Download it, tap on it, hit “Install.”  Should work on any 2.1 and above Android phone.

Cheers Luda!

    Hey the download link no longer works for me

  • Sparrkex

    if the r2d2 and starfield ones arent working turn off your auto rotate screen and it should work it worked fine for me


    is anyone is having trouble of having them actually move. The lightspeed and R2D2 isn't moving at all.

  • Towelie420

    Kellex, or fellow droid-lifers, is that the droid x you're using and also are you running a custom rom on it?

  • Kev

    Excellent! thank you 😉

  • Italia1918

    Millenium and r2d2 dont work on D1?????

  • Baniels

    Oh my god, what a waste of time. I actually expected these to be at least somewhat cool.

  • Sole

    sucks will not work on my D1 🙁

  • danny

    curse my droid 1 not being able to run live wallpapers smoothly

  • Mikeyoungblood84

    R2 force closes every time. What gives?

  • Chris

    Can we get the static wallpapers?

  • PSU

    All of the wallpapers are working well on my Froyo'd DI, and just a note for ones that you have to shake, there is a sensitivity option called shake length in the live wallpaper settings.

  • opprime

    I had an issue with the shake on my DX (stock 2.1). Truth?

    You have to shake it really really hard. No joke!

  • Cali_duude

    They don't work on my Desire (Modaco Eclair r3.1):
    – the lightspeed one doesn't do anything when I shake;
    – the R2D2 one doesn't even load at all (not even the preview).

    Boohoo 🙁

    I hate that this has gone off topic.
    I think most of us realize what and how to operate and modify icons with Launcher Pro and using Better Cut to help modify.
    But has any of you seen the Battery Icon and Alarm Icon they look entirely different then stock, almost as if it were a theme.

  • nblufire12

    this is pretty sick…

  • lvmydroid

    Stock Droid X (2.1) running launcherpro, downloaded apk from MyDroidWorld but is not running. Shake phone and nothing happens. Any suggestions ?

  • evams

    -stated Launcher Pro.
    My question:
    The battery icon even looks different. I'm running launcher pro and have my own custom icons.
    Is that what he is running as well. Launhcer Pro and Custom Icons? It looks really clean!

  • Milestone

    they are not working on my Milestone running 2.1 .. looping force closures

  • Do I have to download these to my computer then transfer them to my phone? Or can I download them right to my phone? And if I have to transfer them to my phone, what folder do I put them in?

    I'm running stock 2.1 on my Droid X.
    Thanks for your help!

    • Never mind, I figured it out, pretty nifty.

      • teresa

        well i have no idea what to do please help

        • ReebX

          I just downloaded them on my phone, opened the zip with Astro File Manager, then installed them from there.

          They all work great on the Droid X, as they should considering its almost the same thing as the Droid 2 internally. Sometimes it takes a few seconds for them to load.

    • Well sometimes they download to my phone…most of the time it just sits there at 0%….

  • Rufus2021

    how do i get that kick ass black notifications bar on my nexus one?

  • FrenchToast

    sooo disappointing…

  • Spaceslug gets my <3

  • 12121212

    too bad wallpaper pack and millenium falcon links are down 🙁

    • Jimmy

      All links worked for me. Runs a little slow on Droid. I might turn off the sound to see if pereformance picks up a little.

  • Wow, This is awesome, Thanks Kellex! =D


  • opprime

    Yea, these are actually fairly boring. Especially ones you have to 'shake' to make work. Sort of disappointed!

  • SsjnimmaX

    not working… just says loading wallpaper… does nothing

  • villian1998

    Now that's what I'm talkin' bout

  • One_ina_milli

    I like the r2d2 and the noises it makes lol

  • JubbaTheHutt

    Link to file is dead. Could anyone host these?

  • Mbbis

    what are you running to get the icons at the bottom of the screen to say phone call, google voice ect..

  • Chris Jones

    I keep getting force closes when trying to select the wallpaper (any of them). Hm.

    • goose50

      Me too. Would like to have these as options, but guess no go.

      • Chris Jones

        Having a hard time finding information/help on the cause and potential fix. Bummer.

  • Jdstell

    Pretty neat wallpapers, but they sure get distracting and annoying after a while. I tend to like the live wallpapers with subtle movements in them, like the ocean or blowing grass. Otherwise it's just too distracting to use.

  • Teabling

    wow, really?

  • Hmm. Not sure what I was expecting, but it was better than this. Oh well.

  • SsjnimmaX

    says temp unavailable???

  • opprime

    I'm an idiot… now it's there.

  • [email protected]

    • striker17

      • antintyty
