How to Install Animated wallpapers on Rooted Android Phones
Step #1: Download the necessary lib files and the live wallpaper files.
Update #1 Use these lib files for activating animated Nexus Wallpapers and getting rid with force close of Nexus. If you have already done it with the above method (using lib files listed in Step #1), just restore back to a nandroid 2.1 backup with all current fixes. If you don’t have one, you can restore to this backup by thegeektern, which is the 2.1 update with the fixes for the carrier, live wallpapers, the VZW eri, and the 705 number text message removed:
Step #2: Unzip both files and place on your SDCARD. (I created 2 folders one named libs and the other app). Place the four Live wallpaper files in the app folder and the lib files in the lib folder.
Step #3: Restart your phone in the recover console.
Step #4: Select mount sub-menu.
Step #5: Mount sdcard and system.
Step #6: Type
busybox cp /sdcard/libs/* /system/lib
Step #7: Type
busybox cp /sdcard/app/* /system/app
Step 8: Unmount both sdcard and system.
Step 9: Restart your phone.
