Thanks man..very helpful!!
This avoids the stupid "orange crop box" issue. On my firmware the brightness will also change to minimum, but after you set the wallpaper you can go to system settings and change the brightness back. Below is a correct size wallpaper if you want to test it, and the original thread about the wallpaer discussion - http://slatedroid.com/index.php?topic=396.01. Copy the wallpaper to the SD Card2. Use "ES File Explorer" to browse to where you copied the image on the SD3. Tap on the image and open with "PhotoBrowser"4. Once you see the image in PhotoBrowser, tap somewhere on the screen to bring up the menu5. Tap on the "spanner" icon6. Choose "Set as Wallpaper"
