  1. Hi.. I am user of HTC Wildfire and from your post i can understand tht in spite of its Android 2.1 its not supporting live wallpaper… is there any alternate option for it… also i am not able to put and wall paper without cropng on main screen.. is any one know how to set full wallpaper without using crop option…

  2. Hi guys!

    Denil, you’re right. Phones like Hero, Legend, Wildfire..etc (check the list above) don’t support live wallpapers, even if you upgrade it to Android 2.1

    The only way to run live wallpapers on these phones is to root it. Rooting can be dangerous task for your phone if you’re not sure what you’re doing.

    See here what does it mean:


  3. Hi
    I got my htc wildfire upgraded from ver 2.1eclair to 2.2 froyo and could see the aquarium live wall paper on the market and installed the application.

    The application was successfuly installed and prompted that the handset does not support the application.

    Any luck for anyone.

  6. m gonna buy HTC wildfire and i wish i could run a live wallpaper on it’s screen

  7. Hi
    I have purchased a HTC wildfire and want to install live wallpapers application in any updates on how it can be done. HTC desire supports live wallpapers.

    Thanks bye

  8. I too have a HTC Wildfire.. and is fed up of trying running live wallpapers on it.. I think it is because of the screen resolution.. It is very small.. It is running on Wilfires S.. Rooting the phone may help..

  9. Hi, I have just purchased the HTC Wildfire S and it does have live wallpapers on it as standard! There are about 4 or 5 different ones and I have tried each one and they work great on my phone with no problems at all. Havent tried downloading any new one’s yet so that may be a different matter.

    But I didnt just get this phone for live wallpapers. This phone is a great all rounder entertainment system !

    Maybe its just the earlier versions of the HTC Wildfire that has issues with the Live Wallpapers?

  10. Hi,

    I’m new in using the smartphones. I’ve tried to install the live wallpapers in HTC Wildfire but it gives an error framework should be upgraded to run the wallpaper. Any help……..

  11. rooting indeed helps and it helps a lot. more than 90% of aftermarket roms that require rooting to install supports live wallpaper. its your choice. im pretty happy with root and live wallpaper. it even runs on the latest android 2.3.3.

  12. Hello

    I too have a htc wildfire , it’s (2.2.1) and i thought that live wallpapers would work , but it didn’t but a friend of mine told me that you have to updated to 2.3 , and i don’t now how he did it because a lot o users say there isn’t one for the wildfire – live wallpapers still is a myth working on the wildfire , or you can do it and maybe it will work , or you just might fu*k it up so keep it as it is or if you want so badly just a wallpaper that moves by a new 600 euro or dollars phone

  13. Are ppl just lazy or stupid on the simple fact That the option For lives wallpapers On wildfire stock roms up to 2.2.1 is not available. You must root your phone as explained above with cynogen mod 7 … case closed. Saying That if you can read forums then fforget reading instructions on rooting.

  14. WTF is wrong with some of you. do your research before you aimlessly comment and fill this up with duplicate questions instead of it being pure information. There is no update for wildfire to 2.3 and i doubt there ever will. NO you cant have live wallpapers on your wildfire without rooting it. if you bought a live wallpaper on a wildfire your stupid because its a waste of money due to the fact that a HTC WILDFIRE DOES NOT SUPPORT LIVE WALLPAPERS!

  15. Hi,

    I have a HTC Wildfire A3333 ( Andriod 2.2.1 ) phone. I am facing problem while setting a wallpaper on single screen . When i tried to set a image to my home screen, it is applying to all 7 screens and the image will come so large.

    Is it possible to set different wallpapers on differenr screens.

    Kindly suggest…

  16. hello there. i know that live wallpapers are not compatible with the wildfire, but i have found some that do! its available on the android market. there is an app tha you can download but they only work on the lockscreen. this is how you do it:

    Step 1: Install ‘Go Launcher EX’ from the market.
    Step 2: Now install ‘Go Locker’ which is a plugin.
    Step 3: Open go locker by using ‘Go Launcher EX’ from the menu by pressing the menu buttons.
    Step 4: Download these themes : ‘Happy New Year theme’, ‘BloodySweet theme’, ‘3d Worm theme’, ‘Dark theme’ and ‘Fishpond theme’.
    Step 5: Now open the settings of ‘Go Locker’ and press ‘Enable’.
    Step 6: Tap on ‘My themes’ (just underneath the Enable option) and select one of the themes that you have installed.
    Step 7: Now you can press the lock button on your phone. Wait for about 10 seconds and press the lock button and there you are! A working live wallpaper.
    (It MAY lag a bit because of the phone’s slow processor but overall it works.
    Hope this works for you 🙂
