Default Home Screen background

Just thought I would give a quick tip here for those that have not tried it...

You can change the background of the home screen by going to setting (system>advanced) and selecting Display then Wallpaper and hit live wallpaper.

There are some of the basic android live wallpapers on it by default. So we don not have to look at the less then attractive default background now.

Also a quick tip. May be brought up before but hitting the Center button on the controller is the same as hitting the menu button on any android device. Useful if you find yourself trying out some side loaded apks.

Moderator: feel free to move this into a any place this post belongs in better...

Default Changed after update?

This doesn't seem to be working after this last update. Has anyone found a workaround? Thanks.

I noticed that as well. Sad they knocked that out in the update. I liked the live wallpapers.
