    Oh sorry. If at the home screen. Hit the menu button>set wallpaper>choose what wallpaper screen (home or lock)>then it asks do you want live, wallpapers or gallery. Choose which one you want and thats it. Hope this helps.

    You need a rooted file browser. I wanted to put my own wallpapers there.... I moved them but they never stay there. Hope someone can help.

    Have you tried "copying" and pasting...instead of "cutting" or "moving"... Some system files wont stick unless copied and not cut or moved

    where are the theme wallpaper files stored? I found the wallpapers that come with the phone using the root file browser but I can't find the wallpapers that come with the themes that you can download.

    Any ideas?

    Okay guys here's what you do it's a Process first you have to use a backup like backup and restore if you set it to backup system apps it will backup the themes as apks that you can access as zip file though a browser like xplore that's the one I use cause in the config setting for xplore you can checkmark open apks as zip now when you click on an apks in xplore it will let you see all the files in the apks....therefore now all you have to do is copy the wallpaper from the theme and walla you have youreceived background from a galaxy theme....

    Thanks Jeremy. I found the apk and opened it to zip. But the file ends in ".qmg". How do I make this as an image I can select from the gallery?

    No need for any of that guys, give either of these a go:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rrentwallpaper
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...paperSaverFree

    Or for a custom launcher (GO, ADW, Nova etc.):
