I want to restore the photo from the wallpaper on my phone but can't find it anywhere. I have root access and have tried advise from searching on here and Google but still can't find the wallpaper location.
Can anyone help?
Duh. Wrong forum, how do I move this to QA?
You don't, a moderator will notice and move it for you
As far as your question goes however, the wallpaper can be applied and stay applied without the original file still being local. It may have been deleted. If it hasn't been deleted, then a search of your phone using a file explorer should uncover it. Make sure you search for items with image extensions. I hope I've helped
