But you're right, I think that figuring out how to get the PPC to do it would be too much (and ChainFire agrees). Also, I didn't realize there was such a render time. ANd it's a shame, too, because all of this is because the images are compressed into an AMD format intended to optimize graphics intensive applications... not three 512x512 images that sit there as wallpaper.
If you were an expert at C-sharp, C++, and/or Visual Studio 2008. Then you might be able to create an app like this...if you're not, then yeah it's way too much work. If you do find somebody who's an expert at ripping apart apps....the HTC camera application has a built in panorama feature so you can compile one big picture from 3 different ones. Give HTC a call and see if they'll send you that source code so you can do some surgery on it (joke).

The problem is the proprietary format of the graphic files the diamond uses without any supporting library in managed code on the .NET compact framework. I'm pretty confident with C# and VS.
