Your world, Solar System (Live earth wallpapers) is only for ARM64 devices as libgeswallpapers-jni.so is only available for those devices Please check testing version in download section. I have done the few changes in the apks to make them properly working, please find the changes below: -

Known Issues
Live Earth (WallpapersBReel)
Your world, Solar system wallpaper will not work on Android M devices as they do not has createDeviceProtectedStorageContext() method in the framework. This method is introduced in the Android N for the Direct Boot implementation. You can read more on this here. We need to disable this call by editing smali, I will try to do it later and if anyone is interested, please pm me.
Now, fixed without breaking the Active Boot functionality on Android 7.0+ devices, please check download section.

Live Data (WallpapersUsTwo)
It uses Google GCM/Firebase so, when we re-sign the apk, it throws security exception due to signature mismatch (visible in logcat). This makes wallpaper very laggy and unstable. Although, it is working fine if you turn off the mobile data and WiFi.
Now, fixed by disabling the Google GCM. No side effects found yet. Please test and report.

Horizon crashes
Many users are facing Horizon live wallpaper crash in Android M. I have searched a bit and found that it is a known issue of Android M (6.0). I am trying to fix it by editing smali/xml but there is no success yet.
Crash is fixed, it was some OpenGl ES error. On some devices it is showing just black screen and I can't do anything more as it is due to the fragment/pixel and vertex shader of the Horizon wallpaper.

Your world, Solar system crashes on Android N
I have tried to fix it, please download and test the apk from below link. It should work on Android 6.0+ devices. If still issue occurs then, please post logs.
Separate testing apk added for Android 7.0+ devices. Please note that it will work on arm64-v8a devices only.

Quote:

Instructions
1. Uninstall any previous apk otherwise, signature conflict will occur.
2. Download the apk from below section.
3. Install it as normal app using any file manager or via adb.
4. Select from different live wallpapers. Wallpapers > Live wallpapers >
On some devices/ROMs (like Samsung, etc.), please install Google Wallpapers to set live wallpapers.

FAQs
How to set wallpaper on the lock screen?
It depends on the ROM. Please contact your ROM developer or device manufacturer.

Not working on Exynos, Kirin or any other chipset?
These wallpapers are designed according to the Snapdragon chipset so, I can't do much in this.

What will be the impact on battery life after using these wallpapers?
It depends on the device and chipset, we cannot control battery drain completely as these wallpapers perform some heavy OpenGL task in the background. Snapdragon 835 is a battery efficient and powerful chipset so, these are perfect for Pixel 2/XL devices. If you are really concerned about the battery drain, please use All devices version as it is independent on the required library and hence less processing in the background. Although, some users experienced no battery drain and some have it. It is very uncertain and difficult to answer.

Working but why there is too much lag?
It really needs some good hardware so, don't expect them to be running smoothly on low end devices (like Snapdragon 400 and 600 series). If lagging in higher end devices (like Snapdragon 800 series) then, may be some GPU drivers issue. Please report with logcats or contact your ROM developer.

What about arm32 (Nexus 6, OnePlus One, etc.) devices?
Some wallpapers are found to be working on some devices. Logcat posted by @pav2805 for device OnePlus One, clearly mentions that OpenGL ES version is not supported which means that hardware is incompatible. Unfortunately, no fix is available yet.

App not installed error on some Samsung or LG devices?
- Enable Samsung live wallpaper picker or LG live wallpaper picker from the package disabler. Give a thanks to @mohitgalaxy3 on this post.
- Do not select them from the Google Wallpapers app. Go to Settings > Wallpapers and themes > Wallpapers > View all. Once it shows all the wallpapers, select the 3 dots in the upper right corner, it should say Live wallpapers. Select the desired wallpaper and Apply. Give a thanks to @G0DLIKE DEMON on this post.

Just installed on my OP3 running 3.5.3 and it's working just fine. Just went to set the wallpapers, and they're in the list. Too bad they won't work on the lockscreen though!

Nice job on the port! Looks cool as heck!

It works great apart from one wall that crashes, namely the Horizon live wallpaper. But that's no big deal.

Can you also port for android 6.0.1 the google pixel's "wallpapersUsTwo.apk"? It's those walls that change "mood" according to the weather and the time of the day. It installs without any problem, but all wallpapers crash. It needs android 7.0.
