The wallpaper was in data/data/com.android.settings/files/ on previous versions of Android. However it appears that it was moved as part of the multi-user preparations. The current location is data/system/users/0/ The file is conveniently called wallpaper and it is a png file.

I was annoyed by the exact same problem, so I have programmed an app that automatically saves your wallpapers and your live wallpapers too. It makes it easy to revert to a previous wallpaper. It is called Wallpaper Saver, by Appdictive, and it's free in the Play Store. (It does not require root access.)

In Android 7.0, it's located in /data/system/users/0. You'll have to use a file explorer to rename it to a jpg or whatever it is. The folder also contains your lockscreen wallpaper so that's a plus.

Last but not least, the Lollipop lock screen shows full-screen still images from multimedia content being played from the device -- so you might see a graphic from a TV show or cover art from an album, depending on what you're streaming. In my experience, however, the images don't seem to clear properly when the content is no longer being played. I ...

I don't know for sure, but could it be a variation of the NFC status icon?

I just messed around with Tasker a little more and found an answer. For anyone who is curious here it is. 1. Create a new profile set to every 24 hours. 2. Add a new action 3. Search for and select HTTP Get 4. Set the Server:Port to https://source.unsplash.com/2560x1440/?nature/ 5. Set the Mime Type to image/* 6. Set the Output File to unsplash.jpg 7. ...

Most Android phones come with an app called "Downloads" where you can find any file you may have downloaded from the internet. From there, you should be able to view the picture and set it as your background through the Menu key settings. Another way might be to look in your Gallery application (or any photo viewer). Most of these will display the Downloads ...

I found the easiest way to do this was with the application Color Wallpaper. All the possible colors selectable from a menu, and i haven't changed the color in months. You can set it and forget it. Even uninstall after setting, if that is your wish. Disclaimer: I am not the developer of this application, just a satified user - for years.

Dropbox is making it seem more complicated than it really is. Unlike on the PC version of Dropbox, the files you see in the Dropbox app aren't actually stored on your tablet. It's just a list of files you could download. When you view the file from Dropbox, it downloads it temporarily into Dropbox's private storage area, and then temporarily gives the app ...

Disclaimer: I am one of the developers, and super excited to announce that we just published a new app for this! We focused on making it simple and really good looking to change your wallpaper to a solid color of your choice within the palette of Android Lollipop material colors. You can find the app in Google Play: Material Colors Wallpaper HD Have a ...

The simplest way to create a black image is to keep the phone with camera down on desk (so that no light falls on the camera) and shooting an image. Then simply set the recently shot image as your wall paper. :)

Its actually the wallpaper from Golauncher EX. You can download it in the play store.

I have Nexus 7 with stock Jelly Bean 4.2. Wallpapers are stored in /system/app/Launcher2.apk/res/drawable-sw600dp-nodpi as wallpaper_01.jpg to wallpaper_14.jpg but your picture is not here. I checked wallpapers in version 4.1.1 online here: https://bitbucket.org/neuralassembly/jcrom_packages_apps_launcher2/src/bd231599ae9f/res/drawable-sw600dp-nodpi And ...

AFAIK the default Android launcher does NOT allow you to do this. However, there are some launchers available on Play Store which let you do this. Regina 3D Launcher is one of them. The other option I see is what you are already doing, using a live wallpaper like MultiPicture Live Wallpaper. (I have mentioned some popular apps to do this, there are ...

I've never heard of this. However, you may be able to set it up if you have a couple of different home screen launchers installed. Some lockscreens let you open a specific app depending on where you drag the unlock icon. You could set it up to open one of your launchers depending on which side it gets dragged to. Then, just set the background for each ...

Had the same issue. TuneIn radio is indeed the culprit. In order to get rid of it do the following: Launch TuneIn Play any channel Lock your screen Go to lock screen Stop TuneIn from the lock screen (press square stop button on displayed widget). Background reverts to normal. Done!

I personally don't have this issue, but this is how I solved a friend's phone with this problem: On your phone, go to Google Play and install the app Muzei Once installed, tap the open button in the Google Play app. You will be greeted with a splash page with a button that says "activate". Tap the button, and then click set wallpaper at the bottom of the ...

Its not blurred wallpaper, it applied two wallpapers, one for lock screen and other for home screen. To set Wallpaper(single wallpaper for both screens): Open wallpaper app, and select any wallpaper, and select this option set as Home screen and Lock screen OR Set Both(option in Google wallpaper app) . Press and hold home screen, the screen will shows ...

/data/data/com.android.settings/files/wallpaper. It's a PNG file and appears to be uncompressed due to the size.

I developed "Wallpaper Saver" to save wallpapers when I have thrown away the original. Get it from Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=dk.alroe.apps.WallpaperSaverFree

I have found the solution. The original image size was huge (about 2600 pixels wide). So I used Photoshop and transformed this image to 960 x 480. Now the image looks the same way when set as lock screen or home screen wallpaper like below:

I have been trying to retrieve the wallpaper as well but found it too difficult. So to solve this I have create the app "Wallpaper Saver". It automatically saves your wallpapers and makes it easy to restore an old wallpaper again. It also supports live wallpapers. It is free to use. You can download it from Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?...

The screen size is 600 x 1024 pixels in portrait mode. That's not the same as the wallpaper size, since the wallpaper is bigger than a single screen (try scrolling your homescreens left and right to see this). Usually you need to double the width, and from what I can see online this seems to be the case for the Tab as well. So use 1200 x 1024.

To expand on Chahk's answer: go to the Settings app, and from the Personal section, choose Security (on a Samsung phone, choose Lock screen instead). Then tap Owner info, and enter your name, room number, phone number (though not of the same phone, obviously), or whatever. I found this a bit limiting, especially for working in a big office, so I wrote a ...

If you have Apex Launcher the follow the below settings, Open Apex Launcher > Home screen settings > Wallpaper Mode > Single Screen(non-scrolling) Apex Wallpaper Mode Screenshot (Click to enlarge) The above settings will not scroll if you have/swipe multiple home screen enabled and the wallpaper will be fixed into one screen and not zoomed and ...

If you are using Apex launcher, I remember that you can disable scrolling wallpaper in Apex settings, just try to find this option yourself. FYI: Touchwiz launcher doesn't have scrolling wallpaper from Jelly Bean up.

That depends on your Android version, but only changes a little. Wherever it is, you need root-access to retrieve it. For Android 6 and under: /data/system/users/0/lock_wallpaper While primary (mainscreen) wallpaper is available at /data/system/users/0/wallpaper. For Android 7+, the file name has changed to wallpaper_lock and is still available at the ...

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4, but see if you can set a common wallpaper through a similar path: Settings > My device > Display > Wallpaper > Home and lock screens. UPDATE 2013-12-06: Another solution you could try is to clear the default app for pictures. If it's a 3rd-party app like QuickPic, go to your phone's Application manager (via Settings), ...

Android treats filenames that start with a dot as hidden. So, there's no way for any app to show them. However, you can still see them on a file explorer that can see hidden files (may need root access).

The launcher application on some phones does not provide the ability for a scrolling wallpaper, the only way to fix this would be to download a separate launcher. Here is a list of most of them - https://play.google.com/store/search?q=launcher&c=apps
