    1. That is a modified apk file! And it’s not only hidden by SE, it’s also customized to not have the main launcher of the 3D Gallery App. So the modified apk actually creates another copy of 3D Gallery using another filename.

      1. Dosent seem to wrk wit 2.1.I flashed my Ph with some Global Generic which I downloaded from XDA.And does the batt level on the lock screen appears only when you charge it ????

  1. hey here in ur blog u hav written mek a backup copy of ur original “gallery 3d.apk” file in case u need it latr but mistkbly i deleted dat widout backing it up…is dat sumthng serious? n why i may require it in future?

    1. It’s pretty simple, jsut browse the location of Gallery3D.apk on your SD Card using Root Explorer and long press it. Out of the options in the popup that just appeared, select copy and press back until you reach to root of your device ( a level up than /SD Card ), but don’t exit else you’ll again have to go to SD Card to copy that file. And then go to System Folder then apps then simply press the paste button at the bottom. πŸ™‚

  2. WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    FINALLY GOT THE UPDATE IN THE UK ON VIRGIN MOBILE NETWORK πŸ™‚

    AWESOME!

    ALTHOUGH… I SECRETLY HOPED I COULD GET 5 DIFFERENT WALLPAPERS WITH THE NEW SCREEN STYLE…

    OHHH WELL ATLEAST THE SILLY UNLOCKING MOTION HAS BEEN CHANGED.

    ALTHOUGH: ANOTHER UNCONVENIENT CHANGE I RATHER LIKED WAS HOW YOU CUD JUST END AND DECLINE A CALL FROM THE TOP POWER BUTTON… WHICH NOW YOU CANT DO I HEARD??
