    I have had my 32gb PlayBook for about 4 months and I love it. Use it all the time and now I'm trying out the os 2.0 it seems pretty good but how can it still not display pictures as a wallpaper properly? It's such a stupid thing to not have gotten right yet.

    Other than that it is an amazing device.

    I have no issues with wallpapers, just make sure yours is 1024x1024 pixels in size so it's properly displayed both in portrait and landscape.

    Yea, wallpapers are a bit of an ordeal. Like Wolfgan said, make them 1024X1024 and you'll be ok. Basically, it has to fit the portrait orientation first and foremost. The landscape orientation is simply teh center part of the portait version. I rarely use my Playbook on portrait, so I make my wallpapers with blank space above and below - like this -
    It's tough to see on a white background, but hopefully you can see what I'm talking about with the blank space above and below.

    What would be nice is if we could set different wallpapers for each orientation.

    That post is an awesome example of what I'm talking about with the blank space at the top and bottom! Check his out and you'll totally get it.

    Nice wallpapers too!

    Hi, I just installed os 2.0.0.6149 and I don't have any native wallpapers? I don't even have the blue wallpaper that I see on every other video or picture about os 2.0. Any idea where I can find it?

    It would be great if somebody would zip up the wallpapers from 1.08 and post a link. Thanks!

    I THINK for that you need to have only 1 wallpaper installed and set, then go to pics app or some file browser and delete the wallpaper... haven't tried myself but have read that this works to get the blue OS2 screen(??)

    I am working off 2.0.6149β, took my PC's desktop wallpaper, shrunk it down to 1024x600, copied it to my PB, and voilà, a background with zero empty space. Wouldn't the recommended 1024x1024 result in either a cropped image or a smooshed one?

    What happens when you turn it portrait??

    It just stretches to the screen size. Should it not?
