Default Wallpapers? Flashable ZIP or location in /system

There's plenty of threads with cool wallpapers. However, they're not flashable zips and I can't find where to put them in the phone in order for me to be able to apply them. If anybody has a flashable zip for wallpapers or the location so I can just move them there myself. I'm on hyperdrive 17.1 if that makes a difference. I searched for an hour before posting this. I'll continue to check my phone files in hopes of finding it. Otherwise if anybody could point me in the right direction, It'd be very much appreciated

nada? Sheesh. So that's why I couldn't find any flashables either... what a bummer. But seeing all the threads for wallpapers... someone's gotta know where to put em. I thought I found the right directory but even after reboot they don't show on the WP selection screen

just extract them to your pictures folder and when you go to select a wallpaper use Gallery. They don't have to be in the system wallpapers in order to use them.

Technically they can be in any folder on your SDCard (internal or external) and the media scanner will find it and add it to your gallery app.

You have to decompile framework-res.apk and put them in /res/drawable and recompile. (Note: you have to know how to recompile framework-res.apk properly or you bootloop and will have to Odin a stock image to get out of it)
