Hello guys!

I modified the deodexed Background Defocus app to make it installable on phones that aren't rooted.

Enjoy!

You might get an occasional UI bug but that's not fixable for now. App should still work fine and I've only encountered it once so far.

Just download and install like any APK:

You need to focus on something pretty close to the cam. About 10cm to 20cm. Much more and it gets bad or doesn't work at all.

Sounds like you still have a part of the root-only version installed, no?

I never had any issues, don't have root.
