Who is ready for another awesome live wallpaper? Yes, you read the title right and that sweet boot animation from the Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich can now be used as a live wallpaper. This is one of the many awesome reasons why I love Android. Thanks to the quick developer mazook98 from XDA Developers, we now have a fully working and beautiful looking LWP built from the 4.0 boot animation, check out my hands-on video and then grab the download below.

I've posted tons of Live Wallpapers here at Android Community and you can see those at the LWP Portal. I usually always try to find something unique and different and this definitely qualifies. Sadly like most of my features wallpapers this one will NOT work on tablets. Well, it will, but isn't designed for the larger screen and I doubt anyone will find it enjoyable. For now this live wallpaper works best for smartphones and I recommend you give it a try. The graphics truly look great, even on my qHD 960 x 540 resolution phone and on a smaller screen it looks even better. Here's a quick hands-on video below. Recorded using Screencast for Android (sorry for audio quality).

The developer understands not all devices are created equal and has provided a few different screen size options in the application, then for those older devices that aren't as powerful you can even lower the frames per second from the stock 30 fps anywhere from 1-60. Again, this is the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich boot animation turned into a live wallpaper and it looks stellar on my phone and so far battery isn't taking much of a hit, but with something like this you'll just have to try it out. All the details are available at the xda forum post.
