Default Where Are Wallpapers Stored?

Hola.

Can someone tell me where the wallpapers are stored inside roms? Are they just in a folder somewhere, easily accessible via a file manager?

Thanks

Looks like the default wallpapers aren't stored in a directory as such, but within Launcher.apk. I was interested too, and I found http://androidcommunity.com/forums/f...rectory-11685/ which lead me to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...98&postcount=4.

Hope that helps.

Ah i see, thanks.

Not as easy as i thought lol. I just wanted to grab the grid-like backgrounds in the drizy hero rom for our magics.. thought it might be easier to save those :P

I use "wallpaper set and save" from the market and have a folder in sd card with all my wallpapers save in there. Its simple and I use this app almost every week
