Re: Can't change lock screen wallpaper

i had the same problem as yours, like it shows "could not set wallpaper." what i did was, i got into Settings>Developer Options, then beside the "Developer Options" title there is a toggle which you can have it turned on/off. I tried to toggle it off then return to changing my wallpaper and it worked for me. I guess Developer options is supposed to be toggled off in order to change the wallpaper. Hope this helps you.

Re: Can't change lock screen wallpaper

Go to developer options in Settings and uncheck the "Protect SD card" option. Then you should be able to change your lockscreen wallpaper.
The wallpaper/album module wasn't able to access the SD card files. But now it should be fine.
