    When a image is set to be the wallpaper, it does not get moved or copied to a specific location. The location of the image you choose to be the active wallpaper is then flagged to the OS for use.


    The default location for wallpapers is /media/internal/wallpapers

    Or did I miss what you are looking for?

    Change your wallpaper

    Your wallpaper is the screen background in Card view. You can customize the wallpaper to show a favorite picture.

    1. Open Screen & Lock .
    2. Tap Change Wallpaper.
    3. Do one of the following:
    * Use an existing picture as the background: Tap the album containing the picture, and tap the picture.
    * Use a new picture as the background: Tap New Photo and take the picture.
    4. (Optional) Do either or both of the following:
    * To capture the portion of the picture you want for your wallpaper: Tap, hold, and drag the picture. The portion in the onscreen box becomes the wallpaper.
    * To zoom out or in on a part of the picture: Pinch in or out on the picture.
    5. Tap Set Wallpaper.

    I'm running the Emulator and I have a white background. Can not set a wallpaper. Seems like the wallpaper pointer is busted.

    This is incorrect (although almost correct - just missing a period). The actual location of the currently active wallpaper (at least on v1.4.5 devices) is the hidden folder:
    /media/internal/.wallpapers

    When an application (or the system via Screen & Lock) sets an active wallpaper, it is copied into this hidden folder.

    However, if you're looking for it in the emulator, it's a different location. Applications don't need to know the exact location since there's a system API that lets them get and/or set the wallpaper.

    If you're having trouble in the emulator, I'd start by shutting it down and starting it up again. If you're still unable to use the Screen & Lock, Set Wallpaper function to set it after a restart, then something may have happened to your emulator image. In that case, I'd suggest you uninstall and reinstall the SDK.

    It's odd, but the emulator is a virtual PC and sometimes things can go haywire ...
