Lollipop fix
If that isn't working on new versions like lollipop try just changing the 2 to a 3: service call wallpaper 3.. The addition of a function to set the keyguard wallpaper bumped it down to 3.

Not working on Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on Nougat 7.1.1 rooted
Hello,

I was using Tasker in my rooted Elephone running on android Marshmallow for automatically changing the live wallpaper on 'time+date'schedule using RUN SHELL command as described in this forum successfully.
Now I bought Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on Nougat 7.1.1 Stockrom, rooted using TWRP< superSU. Tasker has been granted SuperSU permission also. I have exported my tasker profiles from Elephone to Sansung, also it shows green lines at the end of each task. it fails to execute the task .I am very much disappointed. This is the only way to automate live wallpaper changing in Android.
So kindly help me how to solve this problem.
Thanking You

Yeah! It's working on OnePlus 5T with OxygenOS beta 33 (pie).

Using Livewallaper Betta Fish:
Code:
service call wallpaper 3 i32 1 s16 "com.maxelus.livewallpaper.betta" s16 "com.maxelus.livewallpaper.betta.LiveWallpaperService"

Here I will detail how I set up the automatic change of live wallpaper using Tasker. It can work only in rooted phone either by Magisk or SuperSu
First you have to install two applications from Play store
1-' Application Information'- to get the Package name of live wallpapers you have already installed
2- 'Disable service- to get the service name of the wallpaper. Some live wallpapers have more than one service name. The one comes with Wallpaper'in the last liine will be the one we have to enter in the Run Shell command. The other way to find it is just deselect the tick mark one by one in Disable service, then look for the disappearance of that live wallpaper from the live wallpaper picker screen. The service causing the disappearance is what we want to enter in the Run Shell command
Set up a profile - Name it -for Example LWC
then select 'EVENT'- select Date and time set- then it will ask for a task
Name the Task eg: Live wallpaper
Then it opens Task Edit
Select -RUN SHELL-
Put the following command in the Run Shell
service call wallpaper 5 i32 1 s16 ---------------------------- s16 --------------( fill the first dash area the package name you are copying from The Application Information APk, and the second one the service package obtained from the Disable Service Apk as described above. This number '5'is for Oreo rom, if you go downwards to Nougat make it '4', if you go above to Pie make it '6'.)
You have tick the root option in the next line
Then in then ' If', choose what variables you want to choose. As I choose date and time , I selected ' Day of the month' for the first variable then' equals' to the number of the day of the month eg:1 for the first day
Then again press the plus button of the variable, selected 'Time' made it 'greater than' -then put the time in this format- 09.00 for nine o' รงlock in the morning. Tasker will only accept the time in 24 hour format
Those who have finger print or pattern lock, this may not work properly when the display off and phone locked. To make this work in this condition, we have to make another 2 profiles
Name of profile -anything you like- select State- Display -Display state edit- make it off
then add the task we already created eg: Live wallpaper in the this prfile
Make another profile- Name it- then select ' Event'- then 'Monitor'- then select the task 'live wallpaper changer
If you set up all these profile , you can see your live wallapapers changing according to a schedule you created.
Thank you
