I think it would be easier to just root and then download the pro version of titanium and freeze the Amazon special offers app. You can find the titanium backup app on 4shared.

When I try to start root explorer it tells me "Test fail. Sorry this feature cannot run on your device". This means I didn't get root?

This works great. It removed the ads. However, the lock screen wallpapers never rotate. I am stuck with the manilla paper book looking wallpaper, which is hideous. Every once in a while on a reboot it will cycle, but as soon as it goes to sleep and comes back, it's back to the manilla book.

Is there any way to set my own wallpaper, or to fix it so that it rotates the lockscreen wallpaper correctly?

Yes this means you did not get root.

I have the same problem, always got the same wallpaper, it's getting kinda boring :3
I haven't found a solution for this yet since I'm not sure what is causing it :/
