    The file you need is /system/framework/framework-res.apk

    Once inside framework-res.apk you should find the default wallpaper at res/drawable-mdpi/default_wallpaper.jpg

    I'm not familiar with this phone, so if it's not there, search the archive for 'default_wallpaper.jpg'. It should be in one of the res/drawable- directories.

    You can easily edit the apk file with WinRAR, no need to extract or repack, it will allow you to add/remove files directly from the archive.

    Hope that helps.

    Edit: As far as removing the file completely, I don't know how Android will react (black background, error, etc), I've never tried it. Might be better to just change it to something you want. An image of a solid color of your choice. If that's what you chose to do, might be easier to just set the wallpaper the normal way rather than modifying the framework.
