Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.

Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

QVGA:

tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
