Re-paper Your Home Screen


You’ve set up your home screen and added the widgets you need to get the most from your HTC.  Now it’s time to change the wallpaper to something that provides a glimpse into your interests and style.

Changing wallpaper is easy, just tap: Settings->Personalize->Wallpaper. The real trick is finding the right image!

Here are some of my personal favorites taken by the newest member of the HTC Social Media Team, Adam Hawes. Adam comes to HTC from a wide background in both core media and action sports, recently moving to Seattle from Lake Tahoe, CA.

Which of these photos from Adam do you like best? What other types of images would you like us to collect for the next set of downloads?

    Abstracts with simplicity grabs my attention the most.
    I love my home screen to be simple an easy on the eye!
    Bluish colors and green gradients are my favorites.
    I really loved the “Stand-Up Paddleboarder on Lake Tahoe, CA 2012.”
    If it were with no human, I would have downloaded it.
    Thanks again.

    I really like that wallpaper I get on Jellybean because it’s the closest thing I’ll get to JB on a Desire HD.

  17. Larry It’s amazing what htc did with the blog. Big pics and additional scripts made it really nice.

  18. I absolutely LOVE the urban graffiti! I would like to see more of these wallpapers…

  19. Other great wallpapers would be Abstract! Gota have me some abstract ;)

  20. Hi Jose,

    We are working on a way for you to do just that. stay tuned!

    I would some a space/starry-night-themed wallpapers. Particularly ones that are overall relatively dark, and not visually cluttered. A simple variegated star-field could be perfect.

    I prefer them dark, to use up the screen less, to not draw attention when using my phone in the dark, and to improve readability of icons. Readability is also why I like them not visually cluttered.

  24. Hoping for more to add to the collection.

  25. avatar Shane Willetts says:

    Nice – again, as many people have posted – either HTC Hub needs these or the .com website needs to include them (as well as other phones other than the One X+) – and congrats on the redesign!

  26. avatar Vignesh Iyer says:

    Same here.. HTC Salsa and HTC Wildfire S and CHaCha.

  27. avatar Vignesh Iyer says:

  28. avatar Harlemtwin says:

  29. On my HTC One X with the JB update wallpaper scolling is not possible now. If HTC enables this feature it would have been lot of fun with these wallpapers…. Awesome wallpapers :-)

  31. How i can download this wallpaper?

  32. I am not able to connect to htc hub at all from my newly bought htc evo 4g, why is that it keeps saying unable to connect try later

  33. The htc evo 4g is my first smart phone what do all those preinstalled apps do and how do u figure that out, there should be a catalogue or instruction book explaining what they are and what is thier use, please help a begginer, im not really getting the most out of my phone, its almost as if i just have a regular old cellphone, can someone point me in the right direction to catch up and teach myself what I can
