    sure ill give it a try what all goes along with testing something ? what am i looking for or reporting ? apk ? android package kernel ? what does it involve to get it on my phone simple flash method like a theme ?
    Copy to your sdcard and install like you would any other application. Don't flash. You should install via your file manager (Root Explorer or just My Files) Click on the file name "Purplecomb-signed.apk" and the system should ask if you want to install - you do.

    Report back any errors you get..

    If you get a good install report back any graphical hiccups or other issues.

    Given a clean install.. You should be able to find a live wallpaper with the name of Electric Purple Honeycomb.. make that your wallpaper of choice.

    Yep - I was afraid of that - you and I just got our first taste of a beta version.. Sorry man. I will have to pull the link down and try again..

    I really appreciate your time and investment. I will definitely knock again when I get this up and running.

    To un-install go to your task manager and select package and the wallpaper will be there... uninstall and you will have to reset to the wallpaper you had previously.

    Ready to try some Livewallpaper again? - I got the issues resolved with the white screen (hexidecimal off) - Any how here is the Electric Purple Honeycomb version 3 - Link

    Installs the same as the first version. When you set up the speed; I had good images above 45 frames per second... the size - Large.

    Welcome to try it out. Please offer feedback..

    Thanks for the feedback. I tried to get the highest def version of this boot animation.. that is likely the best it is going to be. This is the boot animation for the Moto Xoom.. I pulled a copy of the original of the internet and will try a couple of run throughs. [FYI: The live wallpaper you requested and I produced is available in the Market from free to -> $1.25 - same version you have]

    There is an option to adapt any boot animation (or shutdown animation - in png format) to a live wallpaper. - I will keep making a few examples and when I have a good handle on the software I will teach everyone how to use it.. It is not scary hard to use, just finicky and takes some patience.

    Thanks again man!

    My market is trying to update Pandora and facebook, but they won't install. Is it because I have them apps themed with nitro honeycomb?

    Unlikely due to being themed. Go to Settings> Applications>Manage Applications> All (scroll down to Market)>Select Market and clear data and if there is a cache clear it.. (try to update again) - If you still have issues you can go back under Applications and market and uninstall updates and try again..

    There have been times where a simple reboot of the phone clears the offending issue and my apps update.

    I have been toying around with some software I discovered and found that a Live Wallpaper can be produced from a boot animation file.. it is fun once you figure how to appease the software..

    Thanks to T3CH9ICIAN for the help with the beta release of the Xoom boot.. not the best definition. - Still in progress.

    Here is my first real release - Kanged Blue Particles (higher def) Link

    Install like a standard apk file - copy to sdcard, go through file manager of your choice - install. Look under (soft) Menu>Wallpaper>Live Wallpapers..

    Set your size settings to "Big" and then adjust your frame speed to your liking... enjoy.

    End Goal: Teach everyone to do this...

    Well, in the OP for the Nitro Honeycomb theme, nitroglycerine33 said if you have any of the stock apps for the ones that are themed, you should uninstall them before flashing the theme. So sounds like maybe this could be the case since you have the themed apps and not the stock apps? Not sure.

    Not the same. Totally different video sequence. It is higher def wallpaper - (It is the Wallpaper version the Andriod Particles Blue) boot animation. Still looking for a very high def version of the purple honeycomb.

    If you use a browser you should be able to download to your phone and install like any other apk.

    Good catch Landshark.. I was using NitroHoneycomb without the apps and had issues with the market not updating any of my installed apps.. would force close after opening. I was able to fix permissions and uninstall updates that resolved that issue. Guess I was not sure what direction to go with it.

    I would guess that an uninstall of the market apps and reinstall would be in order.

    Looks pretty good. I know what you mean by blurry.. When I ran it it was doing the same thing.. The png images were adjusted in size to be a great boot animation.. I have the original Xoom boot which is broader but has the same definition... May still appear blurry at higher frame rates.. I will compile it this afternoon and see what it looks like.

    This is as good as it will get. Smaller memory footprint - 25% reduced. Resolution is as sharp as I can get it until I dig into the png files... Let me know which version runs better for you.

    Here is version four.. Link

    Enjoy

    Thanks a lot for the feedback. I helps. I need those extra eyes to see things from a different perspective.

    I built them for you and anyone else who wants to try them out. I will absolutely keep you in mind as I develop apps, animations, and themes.
