    Default Save wallpaper to photo gallery

    I somehow lost the picture I used as my wallpaper. However I still have the wallpaper. How can I save it to the gallery so I can send the photo to someone?

    Thanks so much.

    Use a file manager to open the media/wallpaper folder within the SD Card and see if the image is there - if not, then it may be stored within the device as a cached image and may likely need access to /system (root required) to pull it.

    Thanks for getting back to me. Couldn't find anything on the SD card. Afraid to route this device. In monumental problems with rooting with my Motorola phones.

    Much appreciated.

    I may have a work-around for you, but I have a couple of questions first:

    1) Is the wallpaper wider than one screen?

    2) Do you use a 3rd party launcher?
