OnePlus regularly releases special variations of its smartphones, offering new aesthetic approaches and software customizations to match the special theme. With the OnePlus Nord 2, the OEM recently came up with a uniquely themed Pac-Man edition in collaboration with Bandai Namco. As you might have noticed during our review, the OxygenOS software on the new model features new fingerprint animation, wallpapers, sounds, and plenty of Pac-Man themed stuff.
You might be wondering how to get these Pac-Man goodies on your phone. As usual, they are only available on the special Nord 2 model, and OnePlus does not officially release them for use on other devices. But it’s Android at the end of the day, so sideloading software goodies is a possibility. Contributor recognized by XDA linuxct checked out the new Pac-Man Edition wallpapers, boot animation, fingerprint unlock animation, and a plethora of themed items for all to enjoy!
OnePlus Nord 2 Pac-Man Edition – 10 new wallpapers
There are 10 new static OnePlus wallpapers in the new Pac-Man Edition Nord 2. Below are the compressed and resized previews of each:
If you would like to try them out, we recommend that you download the full resolution (2400 × 1080) images from the link below. They’re bundled into one archive, so you need to unzip it first to get your hands on the actual files.
Live wallpapers and icon pack
Just like the live wallpapers port of the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition, linuxct has also managed to bring the Pac-Man Edition exclusive live wallpaper for classic Android smartphones. Keep in mind that the resources are a bit heavy, so live wallpaper may not perform well on entry-level devices. The icon pack has also been decoupled from the operating system, so anyone can now use them on their devices.
Waka Waka! (Surprise!) – I have worn the OnePlus Nord 2 x Pac-Man Collaboration live wallpapers and icon pack to work on any Android device!

Startup animation, fingerprint unlock animation, and more
Last but not least, here is a mega Magisk module created by linuxct which contains all of the small customizations found in the Pac-Man Nord 2 Edition ROM. For example, replacing the boot animation requires root access, as you need to overwrite the existing boot animation file located in
/system/media, shipping it as a Magisk module therefore makes installation easier.
You can also find various RRO overlays, a dedicated theme for the OnePlus Gallery app, and a set of Always-on-Display and fingerprint unlock animations in the Magisk module, but they probably won’t work on ROMs based on AOSP. Due to internal dependencies, you need to apply them on a OnePlus (or OPPO) device running a recent version of OxygenOS / ColorOS.
