Re: Lock Screen Wallpaper set but not updating?

Never mind i just figured it out. now we have to go to wallpaper and choose cosmic flow. before ics you just had to pick the theme and it was live. now it doesnt. you gotta go to live wallpaper

Re: Lock Screen Wallpaper set but not updating?

Have you tried rebooting the phone to see if the changes take effect. If not I would like to know how many of you who still get this problem after repairing the phone software via PC Companion.

If anyone was having the same problem as me. Going into settings>apps>all>lock screen and clearing data will revert your lock screen wallpaper to default.

Re: Lock Screen Wallpaper set but not updating?

I have the same problem when I select the wallpaper under display>lock screen settings, the selected photo does not show when phone is locked when screen unlock method is pattern/ pin/ password etc. the photo only shows under slide method.

Phone sw was upgraded in one session without error messages.

Pls fix this. Thanks.
