So I’ve never had a big issue with it until today, but I know that getting your wallpaper set up the way you want it on your phone can suck.  Today, I flashed the newest leak on my Epic 4G Touch (I know… I said the OTA was ready.  If you want to ask me about it you can…  it’s pretty much ready) and all of a sudden I couldn’t get my wallpapers to… Read more
