    First, the wallpaper, just long press the screen. A box will pop up, select wallpapers, choose what you want and set. Or you can go into your gallery, choose the pic you want, press menu, set as, and use it as a wallpaper. Lots of wallpaper apps in the market. Zedge is a good one. As for the menu background, not exactly sure what menu you are referring to but you can add a theme and this will change the appearance of the device. No need to root for wallpaper, however you may need to root to install a theme. I believe there are some themes for certain launchers in the market, that do not require root. HTH

    Re: how i can edit android os

    It will depend on exactly what you want to change. Like i mentioned above. Some things you will need root access but for some you don't. If you want to change a wallpaper, theme a launcher, and change some icons, then you will not need to root the phone. However, if you want custom options, custom themes etc. Then you will need to root and flash a custom rom. I hope this helps. But basically, it depends on what you are wanting to do.

    I'd by menu background you mean this at the bottom.

    Then yes you must be rooted. And you will have to edit a .9.PNG inside of framework-res.apk inside of the /system/framework/ folder on the phone.
    I think, for what you are wanting to do you are going to have to root your phone.

    Anyone know if there is a ROM out there that has an app drawer wallpaper/background changing option. I believe that's what he wants.
