Hi there. Updated my familiar's Lumia 525 to Lumia Cyan and noticed that lock screen wallpaper (preinstalled ones) are changed, old ones were removed (except one that was already chosen on Lumia Black software). She wanted to see those backgrounds again and I have found them on that site (in Russian). Now I have an idea to collect all the wallpapers that were presented in Windows Phone including 7.0, 7.5, 7.8 (if it different between versions) and 8.1. And of cource I want to get them with maxed out quality which is 1080p for the 8.1 and probably 720p because there were no phones with 1080p screens on Windows Phone 7 platform.

Problem is, there is no way to get those wallpapers from the stock phone. You need to have Full File System Access to get those pictures. I have downloaded leaked Windows Phone 8.1 Emulator image, but there were only Windows Phone 8 (GDR 0 to 3) wallpapers there (but 1080p quality, same ones that were presented on site above). So my request is only applicable to the interop-unlocked Lumias, if the phones like 920 has this location:
Quote:

(Phone):\Windows\SYSTEM32\lockscreen\1080x1920

I don`t know the location for WP7.X devices, but think it should be somewhere there it.

Also there would be nice if someone will provide maxed out lockscreen backgrounds from the current version of the Live Lock Screen app for Microsoft. If they are not protected somehow, all you need is to install the app to SD Card and then use @djamol method. Any Windows Phone 8.1 updated device should be up to do this. I tried to just move the app on my device from the phone storage to SD card, but then there is no Install folder I can copy files from. Doesn`t want to loose my background settings by reinstalling directly to SD card.

There was

Or just use the normal (not-all-capability) version of the Webserver app in my signature. It's perfectly capable of browsing and downloading files from the Windows folder!

GoodDayToDie Webserver 480x800

Yes, webserver app is working, but there's only 480x800 wallpapers on my Lumia 620 with latest 8.1 Developer Preview (I has reasons not to update to Cyan at now and it`s unavailable for me OTA)

I need 1080p ones (should be present on any 930/Icon, 1520 or Incoming HTC One M8)

Oh. It would be great if it will work. I have Navifirm+ with full access, so can you please tell me is there any phone with screen that larger that 800x480 (even Lumia 900 sized that way ) and what the software versions should I download for 7.0, 7.5 "Mango" and 7.8 for that large screen phone and also what the tool should I use to open that firmware? Thanks.

Well yeah, of course the 620 doesn't have the high-res wallpapers. I was just telling you (and everybody else) how they can get those wallpapers off their phones. Somebody with a higher-resolution phone will have access to the high-resolution wallpapers, no need for the Full FS Access hack.

Thanks. Just explored 930/Icon firmware downloaded from NaviFirm+ and took wallpapers from it. But there is a little problem. On my Lumia 620 there is more wallpapers than I could find on the extracted firmware. I don`t even know where they're located. Here is some pics describing this:





Those I could find are with lime green border and those I couldn't are with red. No such pictures into 930 firmware, at least, unencrypted. Any suggestions?

Also, @GoodDayToDie, can you please respond to my PM I sent on 1st of September and then it was marked as read at 4th of September, no response since then
