I have managed to port the Google Pixel Live earth wallpapers and Live data wallpapers to Android 6.0+ devices.
1. Extracted from Google Pixel system dump.
2. Added libgeswallpapers-jni.so in the Live earth wallpapers apk.
3. Added libgdx.so in the apk from the official nightly.
4. Fixed Your world, Solar System to work on Android M.
5. Fixed Live data wallpapers.
6. Re-signed by me to make them installable as normal app.
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.
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.
