Phone [APP] [2.3.4][4.0+] 3D Wallpapers picker (non-root for htcsense roms)

Hi everyone,

From now on it's possible to set 3D wallpapers on your homescreen!
SUPERUSER ACCESS NO LONGER REQUIRED!!!

Download
The apk can be downloaded from Google Play:
(Android 4.0 and higher supported)

Download



FAQ
What does it do?
The stock wallpaper picker converts 3D images to 2D before setting them as wallpaper. With this app you can set 3D wallpapers (inspired by the Jmz EVO 3D/V 3D switcher from jmztaylor).

How does it work?
To automatically enable the 3D mode on the homescreen and disable it when opening any application, this app uses a Live Wallpaper as a container for your selected 3D backgrounds. So first you need to set the Live Wallpaper in able to see the 3D container.

How do I set up this 3D wallpaper?
1. Homescreen -> menu -> Live Wallpapers -> 3D Wallpaper -> Preview -> Settings -> Apply (first time use)
2. To set your own wallpaper, use settings in Live Wallpaper preview or Homescreen -> menu -> Wallpaper -> 3D wallpapers

What kind of images can be used?
Usually 3D images are stored as .jps or .mpo file.
When picking a background, make sure the image is Side-by-Side 3D and you select 'Use 3D'

A black wallpaper is shown with a red exception in the center. What is it?
It means there is no wallpaper selected yet. You can select different wallpapers for landscape and portrait (if your launcher supports it) by using Homescreen -> menu -> wallpaper -> 3D Wallpaper

Why do I have to set a live wallpaper?
The Live Wallpaper is a container for the selected 3D image you choose from the gallery. By using a Live Wallpaper container, the 3D mode can be enabled and disabled automatically.

The app doesn't work! The wallpaper is 2D and blurry
Your phone needs to be rooted (e.g. jailbreaked) and have SuperUser installed on it.

How can I root my phone to get this app up and running?
Follow this guide (at your own risk) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1535987

Where can I find 3D wallpapers?
Install Phereo 3D Photo, which will allow you to view and store a lot of 3D images. Download can be found here. Also take a look at this post to download 3D wallpapers without the watermark.

Are there any known bugs?
1. If a 3D boot animation is installed, the last few seconds of the boot animation will be in 2D interlaced instead of 3D, as Android is already drawing the wallpaper. Because it's invisible, the script to disable 3D is called...
2. Sometimes the screen blacks out when switching from 3D to 2D view. Known fix; wait a few seconds to let it restore the backlight. (More info here)
3. After setting the Live Wallpaper for the first time, the screen might not switch to 3D. Turn off the screen or open any app and switch back to the homescreen. It should now be enabled.


Supported file formats
  • MPO
  • JPS
  • JPG, PNG, etc. (use horizontal side-by-side)

Seems to work great !!


I have tried to convert some of my 2d pics with HI3D
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.himax.Hi3D

But I far as I see the 3d render are save to mpo files, which can't be read by the default gallery. It's sad because the 2d-3d convertion seems to be great visualy, but only in the HI3d app itself.
Don't find any option to save the pic into jps as the description said...

But your app work fine with normal 3d pictures, and that the essential point !

Any project to let user choose the cropped section instead of the middle?

1. HTC Gallery can open .mpo files, and so does this wallpaper picker
2. Perhaps, but it slows down the selection process of a new wallpaper I'll look into it when I find some spare time...

Yes it can open the file mpo file but they are diagonal streched for the landscape pics, and for portrait one I can't describe, I will post some sample as soon as come back home.
