Our wallpaper will be released when theme is released. It is our signature and original. Wallpapers can be added to the app but it takes photo editing and at least XML skills. May even take smali skills. Haven't dug that far into it yet. That is one of our next projects.

I did a clean flash. I was running stock 4.1.1 rooted and totally wiped everything to barebones and flashed to Synergy from there. So there was no changes made prior to flashing.

I am familiar with XML but never heard of smali. It's unfortunate because changing the lockscreen wallpaper from the Samsung wallpaper app actually works. So if I could get one in there it would fix it.

But I think it's just the porting of the gallery apps in this ROM that might be hit or miss. When the prompt appears for which app I want to use they both are showing their package names rather than "Gallery". They show up as Gallery in the app drawer, it's only in the default program prompt that they don't.

Yea. Mine shows gallery or Wallpaper apps so something wrong with the flash. When I pick gallery next popup asks which gallery. Both work but Note 2 gallery works better as far as it is already sized. Your flash is bad.

What carrier is your Galaxy S3? Which model? Are you running the latest Synergy? I really don't think it's a bad flash and could just be that it's hit or miss depending on the model.

I found another thread where someone had the same issue with not being able to fix the wallpaper. Another guy said that he had the issue and it just went away on it's own somehow.

I think that it working on your phone doesn't really mean it's definitely a bad flash on my end. These ROMs tend to have a lot of bugs with different configurations so I'm sure that's why nightly builds are done.

I just wanted to ask in case these problems were already solved so I didn't have to read through 1700 pages to find the answer. I'll see if I can figure out how to fix it. Thanks

I don't know. I reflash mine between 20 and 50 times a day. I am on I535 Verizon 32 gb. On Synergy 326 and My theme. Running Ziggy kernel @172/384 with no voltage changes and no reboots or kernel related problems.

You restore your apps that many times a day too? When do you ever time to actually use the phone? lol

I was totally fine with the stock samsung touchwiz on jellybean since I got the device on release day up until now. Just wanted to try the multi-window feature. Doesn't seem to work as well with the GS3 screen size. I have a feeling the GS3 will never actually get it since it's meant for the Note 2's giant screen.

I restore apps as needed. I got mine on pre-release also and the device came with ICS and not JellyBean. I was rooted and unlocked on day each was available. Multi Window was released to the International Version of S3 in December so it is known to work with the device. We will not see it at least till release of S4. Have to remember we live in a capitalistic country. 4.2.1 was just leaked to International so we may jump over Premium Suite or never recieve 4.2. That is why we do what we do.

You were lucky. You are also an Android noob and may not can tell what is broke yet. Broke Android still better than an IPhone.
