Re: Can not change lockscreen wallpaper :(

Disable DEVELOPER OPTIONS, and after that is possible to use ALBUM pics for screen lock wallpapper. Work 100%. All the best !

Re: Can not change lockscreen wallpaper :(

I am on the latest .157 build version, and i'm still unable to change the lock screen wallpaper. The Lockscreen wallpaper seems to be a live wallpaper that changes colour as you swipe your finger. Anybody know how to disable this? I've just updated today to this build version too. I've had this issue from 4.3 too.

Hi Jaissal89

Have you tried changing into other theme like Heat or anything? Does the live wallpaper also happened in other themes other than Air theme?

Update to Android 4.3 and once you've clicked the photo on the Album app you wanted to be as lockscreen wallpaper, click Menu button on top right, then "Use As" and click "Lock screen wallpaper", then it will prompt to Crop Picture and voila. Slightly smiling Face


 

I have zedge and I was trying to change the picture o lockscreen. But Zedge wasn't appearing as an option. When I chose gallery and selected a picture, it said "the lockscreen stopped". I was desperate becuase nothing was working. 

 

Then I tried to do what you said and it worked! Thanks so much!

Re: Can not change lockscreen wallpaper :(

I had this weird death skull picture show up on my lock screen. Have no idea where it came from and couldn't change the lockscreen picture. Tried a few thing suggested on this forum but what finally worked was just simply switching the phone off and rebooting the phone. Back to normal and ugly picture from wherever has gone. This may not help anyone but it shows that the lockscreen on Sony phones is causing problems - I have a Xperia Z5 Dual Sim. For those suggesting the 'Developers' option in Settings - I have no idea where it is in Settings on the Z5 and I looked everywhere.
