If you've been on the hunt for a new live wallpaper, then look no more - XDA member Rawat has gotten his hands on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II and pulled a couple of live wallpapers from it that are ready for use on any WVGA device. These install just like a regular .apk and do not require root access or any other system modifications in order to work.

The first one is a simple beach setting complete with sand and tide. It is time-aware, so as the day progresses the wallpaper will change accordingly.

The second one is similar to the first in its simplicity. This one features windmills instead of the beach, but they seem to share the same sky backdrop. Like the beach, this one is also time-aware and will get dark as the sun sets.

To get a better idea of what to expect out of the wallpapers, here is a quick video rundown from CJ Lippstreu from SmartKeitai.com.

You can grab both of these live wallpapers from our mirror, posted below.

    They are also weather aware too!

  • Anthony

    I tried installing both using the QR codes and they wouldnt install on my 4G Galaxy S. Said "cannot download, content not supported on phone". Any idea for a fix?

    • Cameron Summerson

      Try downloading to your PC and transferring them to your phone.

      • Anthony

        What directory would i put the files in? I looked around for the folder that has my phone's pre-installed live wallpapers but couldnt locate it.

        • aj

          Just drop it on the root of your SD card and install it from there. It shouldn't matter where it's placed. After the installation it'll pop up with your other live wallpapers.

  • Mark

    Same here...Galaxy Tab

    • Cameron Summerson

      The Galaxy Tab's resolution is too high. These LWPs are only compatible with WVGA.

  • Berlin

    Yeah, it's not working on my galaxy s either. Really displeased right now...

    • Cameron Summerson

      Are you getting an error message?

  • BachinPhx

    Very cool. Thanks!

  • Berlin

    on my laptop it says there is no default app to open the docu. so i plug my usb in and try to transfer that file to my phone and it still wont work.

    best feature of Samsung galaxy s2. but it's for samsung android :D

  • Rick

    Tried installing both using the QR codes and they wouldnt install on Samsung Epic 4G. Said “cannot download, content not supported on phone”. Any luck or fix anyone?

  • Mike

    Works on the mt4g

  • Ahmad

    Where is the download link?????

    • Cameron Summerson

      At the bottom of the article, where it reads "The Beach | The Windmill". Clicking the name will take you to its respective download.

  • Berlin

    yeah except that its not working.... still

      The links are working fine, but some phones are incompatible.

  • Berlin

    yea, ive tried to dl it to my laptop and then put it on my phone and i put it in the folder where i see other wallpaper names and it's not coming up on my phone after that. i have no clue what i could be doing wrong.

  • jason

    Just get it on your phone. Anywhere. then use my files to open and it will request to install. Works great

  • http://fc1032.blogspot.com Brian

    It works on my Nexus one :) a little lag (surprisingly less than the original galaxy s ones though)

    Would be nice if we could configure the location ourselves. Or at least have a bit more settings.

    I haven't tried the galaxy tab, but seeing others, doesnt seem like it would work.

  • Berlin

    well, i dl a file manager and when i click on the file it just tells me that it cant be open. I don't know what the problem is here...

  • Suckmy3inchdick

    "download unsuccessful." It shouldnt matter with the tab being to high a resolution, the dam link is broken.

  • http://fc1032.blogspot.com Brian

    I just installed it on the Galaxy tab, both run fine in portrait. The beach one doesn't work on landscape too well.

    Its not as sharp as on a phone (but thats expected)

    There should be some indication of location in the settings, it says its sunny when its actually raining... and its not daytime anymore either.

  • demus

    What are these configuration settings? They are various times ....10 minutes, 6 hours etc

  • Robert

    Can anyone explain why it needs internet access and all other permissions?

  • Davidus

    1 out of 23 ppl it worked for, ''with a little lag'' lol. Epic 4g here, not compatible...

  • TheAxe

    Works fine on Epic 4g running stock 2.2. However, the default mobile browser didn't follow the short url redirect properly. I had to download the apk's on my laptop, transfer them to the phone, and install from there.

  • L boogie

    Works great on my droid incredible; download to a file mgr then, open via package installer though it's titled secret wallpaper on my phone.... Go to your wallpaper gallery and it should be there under that title in live wallpapers

  • Thunderdan602

    Amazing and gorgeous wallpapers. Downloaded and installation was a breeze on my Thunderbolt. Thank you so much for sharing.

  • charlie

    downkoad links are fine. works seamlessly with nexus s

  • Alan

    I installed both of them on my HTC Inspire after ATT released the sideloading update. Looks awesome! You are the man! Any way possible u could get the beach live wallpaper from the new Samsung Infuse and post that too. Thanks again and keep up the good work bro. It's appreciated.

  • pyae phyo

    I have downloaded these wallpaper to my galaxy s. But it is unsuccessful. Please tell me why i can't download?
