Samsung Galaxy S II Windmill & Beach Live Wallpapers extracted, get them on your Android (Update: 2 videos)

April 24, 2011

Rawat, from XDA, has extracted two Live Wallpapers from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II, and now you can run them on your Android. The two wallpapers pulled are centered around the countryside with windmills and the coast with a beach scene. The backgrounds will actually change from day to night depending on the time of day, which is always a cool feature when it comes to live wallpapers.

We tested them out on the Google Nexus S, also by Samsung, and filmed a video for your viewing pleasure. If you’re interested in getting these live wallpapers on your phone, head over to XDA-Developers for the download links. Install the APK files using a file explorer and then configure them just like any other live wallpaper.

Note: on the SGS II, these wallpapers update with weather animations corresponding to your area. I can confirm that this feature does work with these extracted LWPs – see second video below.

Update: the live weather feature also works on these wallpapers.

Check out more Live Wallpapers.

UPDATE: we just stumbled upon a new Live Wallpaper in the Market called My Beach HD. It’s similar to the Galaxy S II Beach LWP, so check out our video review below.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, and set this live wallpaper on my phone.  It’s really cool, and changes from night to day, but the weather doesn’t work.  Any suggestions on how to fix it?
