you need the LiveWallpapersPicker.apk (and possibly livewallpapers.apk too) for it to show up in
home->menu->wallpaper->livewallpapers

I tried installing ones from xda supposedly for nexus one, but it wouldn't even install.

then tried copying and installing the ones from my Optimus V - installed successfully, and gets me to the menu of available live wallpapers (google maps, plus 4 additional live wallpapers I installed (2 from market, 2 from downloading)) - but no matter which of the 5 I select, it crashes / force close.

read that it may have to be installed as system app not user, so I'll try that next, but really not holding out much hope for it...

to my surprise, it works - only need the picker app (attached - sorry, you'll have to unzip the file, forum wouldn't allow me uploading the apk without zipping it) plus install some actual live wallpapers (see below)

- unzip this apk onto your sdcard or extsdcard
- get a root shell (adb or terminal)
- make system writeable
- copy the apk to system app directory
- make sure permissions are rw-r-r (or at least rwx-r-r) - may not be necessary but I think it is
- remount system read only
- quit

Code:
su -
busybox mount -o remount,rw /system
busybox cp /mnt/sdcard/LiveWallpapersPicker.apk /system/app
busybox chmod go-wx /system/app/LiveWallpapersPicker.apk
busybox mount -o remount,ro /system
exit
exit

works (a little slow but not bad) with "nightfall live free" and "sun rise free" from the market. tried using it with google maps - works ok in preview but crashes when try to set permanent.

Do we have to use adb or terminal?
I use Rootexplorer, copy the apk to system/app,change permission and install Thor live wallpaper.
Check menu-wallpaper but no livewallpaper menu to choose.
Tried to install LiveWallpapersPicker.apk in my system/app, but it said "Parse Error".
And yes, i already unzip it.
Can you help me?
Thx

using root explorer to copy and change permissions should be the same (for some reason, on my PE, neither root explorer nor ES file explorer could ever successfully write to /system or even remount it, etc. - which is only reason I use terminal app or adb shell for stuff like that)

installing the apk normally puts it in /data/app, which was what I tried at first and didn't work. but if it said parse error then sounds like it's corrupt somehow.

I have allmine applied, that could make a difference? if live wallpaper app needs device/framework to believe it's a phone.

or, just realized: in my build.prop I have fingerprint set as optimus V (and the picker app is copied from my optimus V) - that could possibly make a difference? so in case of vanilla allmine install, try the picker apk from nexus one (xda forums has it)
(can apk be valid/not per-device? when I originally tried the nexus one picker apk, it told me parse error)

sorry so many unknown variables... I'm still surprised it works at all for me.

yeah, according to google, one of the reasons for "parse error" is the apk has a higher api level than the device - which might make sense given, again, the apk is from my optimus V, and my build.prop settings are a hybrid of ones from the OV and the original, rather than the settings from a default allmine install.
(probably also explains why I got parse error trying to install the nexus one picker I found on xda)

do you mean installed it by normal click-install? because when I did that, I got the same crash/force close, every time.

installing as root to /system/app and making sure of permissions, is what made it work for me. if you already tried that with the new apk you found, sorry don't know what else to say...

but when you say successful, do you mean copied into /system/app as root, or do you mean that the normal click to install worked (which puts it in /data/app) - because, again, for me only root copy worked, not click install. sorry if I'm misunderstanding.

Ah..root copy.
I copy the apk to system/app as root, change permission and then click install it. It succesfully installed,and when i click menu button and choose wallpaper,there is new choice,that is "live wallpapers". When i choose it,it showed list of livewalllpaper installed in my PE. But when I picked one,it crashed.

In short,root copy-install-success, but menu-live wallpaper-list of wallpaper-crash.

no... you should not click to install it at all... copying to /system/app is enough. once it's there don't try to install it. the live wallpapers option should show up after that.

but now... you should probably try to uninstall it if you can (which should remove it from /data/app, but really not sure what will happen though if it's in both app folders... you may need to use root explorer to delete it from one or both places if uninstall doesn't work)

You're right...it's worked!!!!
Sorry..it's my own fault..i thought i need to install it after copy.

I uninstall it using titanium backup,restart,re-copy LiveWallpapersPicker.apk, set permission,restart...and......it works!!^^
( a bit slow ,though...but that's to be expected)

btw, here's the link for LiveWallpapersPicker.apk, in case someone need it:
http://www.4shared.com/file/vqM5YsOI...r_21__App.html
(no need to bother with lib.7z inside the folder, we don't need it)

Followed instructions above. Live Wallpapers does not show up under "Wallpapers". Just to see what would happen, I clicked and installed it. Now it does show up under "Wallpapers" but as mentioned above it FC's. If I copy it to the /system/app folder, set permissions, etc... without installing, it doesn't show up under "Wallpapers". Any clues??

Thanks,
Jeff
