Obtaining Your Droid X Live Wallpaper

A savvy XDA forum user has taken the initiative to decompile the Droid X’s live wallpapers and provide them to the Android masses. At the moment, 6 live wallpapers of the Droid X “Eye” are available on the thread - 5 from the phone and 1 modified by one of the forum members. Links for each below:

Installing

To install your Droid X Eye live wallpaper, simply

  • download one of the .apk’s linked above straight from your phone's browser and click on it to install or
  • move it to your phone from your computer, open using Astro File Manager or another install-capable file manager, and select install

Once installed, the Droid X wallpaper is selected like any other live wallpaper:

  • go to your home screen
  • hit the settings key
  • select wallpapers > live wallpapers
  • the installed .apk should appear as “DROID X.”

The wallpapers should be installable on any 2.1 or 2.2 Android device, with or without root.

It seems like almost every other day something new is leaked about the upcoming Droid Xtreme. This is fairly typical of any anticipated phone release so, while nothing new, it can get a bit confusing with so many sites reporting on every single leak regarding this phone. Here is a rundown of everything that is Motorola Shadow/Xtreme…

This phone was originally dubbed the Droid 2 before progressing into its second name, the Droid Shadow.

Another week another leak – we’re visited once again by our old friend the Droid Shadow (AKA: Droid Xtreme/Droid X), this time with two new pictures and few tidbits about the phone’s software.

In case you’re out of the loop, the Droid Shadow is said to be Motorola’s latest addition to Verizon’s Droid brand, which we’ve covered here and here (note that I incorrectly referred to the Shadow as the Droid 2 – from what I’ve read since, this is not the case).

Time for another game of ‘Shop job or Shadow: Gizmodo’s received a picture from someone claiming that they found the upcoming Motorola Shadow on the floor at a Verizon corporate gym.

According to the tipster they had enough time to confirm most of the rumored specs of the phone before it was remotely locked down, though suspiciously, they only had enough time to snap one picture.

Engadget notes that the angle of the picture is uncannily similar to that of the leaked ‘Getting Started’ manual that we’ve covered earlier.

A user over at Howard Forums has leaked what appears to be a ‘Getting Started’ manual for an as of yet unknown Motorola phone. Rumor has it that this is the Motorola Shadow/MB810, a phone that we’ve seen in random leaks here and there for the last few months.

Apparently it’s an ultra-thin slider, which has some speculating that it will be Verizon’s follow up the original Droid. If this is in fact the MB810, then we know a little bit about the expected specs:

  • 4.3 inch screen
  • HDMI port
  • 8 Megapixel camera
  • 1080P Video Recording
  • 802.11 b/g/n

This info all came via Engadget’s past coverage of the device here and here.
