It sounds foolish to say that you need a template in order to make good looking wallpapers for your T-Mobile G1 but sadly it is true. You might have noticed that the wallpapers for the G1 are 640 x 480 but the phone’s resolution is only 320 x 480. The reason is because Android handles wallpapers differently than other phones.

As you might have noticed most of the wallpapers at G1Wallz.com are available in two versions, a regular wallpaper and a wallpaper with an icon dock.

It has been a frustration ever since the T-Mobile G1 was released to see how your high quality images get turn into a blurry mess when you set them as wallpapers. Supposedly this is caused by a JPG filter applied to images when set as wallpaper and this issue will be resolved with the next Android update (Cupcake). Until now G1Wallz.com had been using 800 x 600 resolution wallpapers instead of the default 640 x 480 on the G1 to get better results but now there’s an application in the market called “Wallpaper Set & Save” that sets your wallpapers without applying the filter resulting in sharper lossless images. The application is very simple to use, all you have to do is point to the folder on your SD card where all the wallpapers are saved.

You will need JF’s RC30, RC8, or ADP1 V1.3, depending on what version you intend to create for.

You will also want to get the dev bootloader installed on your phone and to HIGHLY suggest everyone trying your theme to install it as well.
