regarding the background, my apology but i can't change it, if i change it to same w x h dimension (for ex 512 x 512 pixel) it will still stretch but will stretch in phone mode also,
with the default background, it will not be stretched in phone mode (stretched in landscape mode only)
it will only be resolve for plain background unfortunately
btw asul 4.2 will be out soon,
maybe if i reached 1600 on my thanks meter?
