This is my first post so be gentle on me guys and girls!

I got the Nexus 5 on launch day in the UK and am absolutely loving the phone, been playing about with the Android Open Source Project and compiled the Live wallpapers. Currently got the Galaxy one set at the moment.

Here are the Live Wallpapers from the Android Open Source Project for everyone to enjoy

How exactly would you install one of these?

You will need to allow installation of apps from sources other than the play store by checking the box in Settings -> Security -> Unknown sources.

Hope this helps!

I'n not too sure to be honest, it's the first time i've looked at AOSP before. The last phone I has was the Optimus 3D which was way behind everything for software updates. LG hardware seems sound but their software is lacking so the Nexus seemed perfect with the software being pushed by Google.

So do you just copy it to any folder on the SD card, check the unknown sources box, install it from that folder, and then delete it from the folder on the SD card after it installs?

Yep that's right, then you can set it like any other wallpaper.

It is supposed to move, I don't think it works with Googles new launcher though. What I always hated about this wallpaper though it the big circles would disappear if they were more than half off the screen. It just made it look choppy and ugly. Wish someone over at google wouldve done a better job with it.

It doesn't scroll on the Nexus 4 and if I remember correctly, it was static on the Galaxy Nexus also. I prefer non-scrolling.

Thanks. I tried this with ES File Explorer and it comes back X Not Installed. Then all I can do is hit Done. I tried the PhaseBeam.apk from my Nexus 4. The .zip from this thread does not have an .apk file in it.

i noticed them disappearing also. looks lazy, but there is probably a reason for it
