    Copying a wallpaper from S2 to S3

    I have a really nice wallpaper on my S2, cannot for the life of me find it anywhere... and I looked.

    So I thought "easy-peazy" i'll copy it to the S3. But I don't know where to find it, how to locate it in the S2... the Gallery does not show it.

    I know that the big Guys are going to laugh... it is probably very simple... but not for little me.

    So, can anyone explain in English, not in GeekSpeak, as I suffer from a congenital mental viscosity...

    Thanks, guys.

    I would go through all of your folders just to verify but it sounds like you may have deleted the wallpaper from the gallery... My guess would be the only way to retrieve it would be to mount the system and retrieve it from the system from within the phone.... I would go into detail but if you aren't sure how to do this then you may not want to mess with it... You may be better off to post a screen shot of the wallpaper and see if maybe someone else has it they can share... Getting into the system of the phone is just like tinkering within the registry on a computer....

    Thanks. You're right, I don't want to take risks doing what I do not understand.

    It just infuriates me that it can be done... obviously. And I can't. Ah well, I'll try and post it...

    Do you recall where you got the wallpaper? Was it a picture you took, a wallpaper from a 3rd party launcher theme, downloaded from a website, etc? If you can't figure that out and/or recover it from your S2, you might try downloading the free app Zedge from the Play Store. They've got thousands of amazing wallpapers available.
    Good luck!

    Thanks CR6 but no, sadly, I can't remember... it's been there quite a while (Galaxy S2). Not hugely original, really, just that the arrangement of colours will be a perfect background for the (5x5, thanks Apex!!) icon grid of my home screen. It is a a landscape of a pre-sunset by the sea (waves, birds...).

    Nothing to write home about, really, but I'm like that > determined for the people who like me, stubborn for those who don't

    STOP PRESS: with the help of File Manager, I have ferreted out a sub-sub-sub directory > Android/data/com.caiguda.hdwallpapers which may be promising...

    Watch this space...

    OH NO, Miller6386 !!! No, I did not find it !!! The photo is my Galaxy S2, where the wallpaper is...

    I was following your advice > """You may be better off to post a screen shot of the wallpaper and see if maybe someone else has it they can share..."""

    So, if anyone recognizes this wallpaper, please ring me on 00.33.5.56.xx.xx.xx.... Merci !
