Picked my kindle up to find it updated and unrooted the other day, and i have since rerooted it and fixed everything like it used to be but have a very annoying problem. I hadn't set go launcher hd back as a alternate ui since the last update and when i did this time i have no wallpaper. Here's where it gets interesting, i tried nova, go launcher ex, adw and apex, they also couldn't set it. My lockscreen defaults to random stock image like it should still, but my background wont set,its just a black screen behind the icons. Anyone have any ideas or is this just a bug with the latest update that i haven't read about?

EDIT:
THE SOLUTION TO THIS IS A FIX I MADE ITS POSTED ON PAGE 8

This should help people that don't want to read through this to find a solution.

That tells me nothing. What happens when you try to set it? Are there any windows that pop up? What apps are you trying to set it with? What Amazon OS are you running? Are you running the latest version of the launcher?

Ok I'm on os 7.4.1, on go launcher hd i tap the preset wallpapers and nothing happens, on go launcher ex and others i could goto the selection menu and tell it to set whatever wallpaper i choose but it just remains a blank black background with the ui on it. It's the latest version of the launcher as far as google play store says, also tried setting up live wallpaper, thought it could of been the problem so i removed it and rebooted, still doesn't work.

The only way I see out is a factory reset. I'm not aware that Amazon release 7.4.1, is it 7.3.1 by any chance?

Could you post a screenshot of your software version? You are the only person who says they have 7.4.1.

The official Amazon website says the latest is 7.3.1: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=201016350

7.4.1 is out brother, I saw it today on my friend's KFHD today! Glad I followed your instructions yesterday to get CM on mine before that update got pushed out!

Hm. So far not a lot is known about this new software yet, because it's barely pushed out, so you'll have to wait for a bit for a changelog to show up, then we can go further. For right now, know that Amazon OS doesn't play nice with Android, so if you want to go for the easier route and be done with it, go to my thread in my signature.

I guess so. I'm glad my thread has been of help.

It's always got to be something!
am also having this same problem. I have a rooted KFTT running the stock ROM and GO Launcher ex. Usually GO is pretty good about wallpapers, live or static, but since the 7.4.1 update I have seen nothing but black screen. When in theme settings everything seems to be fine..... no errors. Everything but the wallpapers change. I have attached a screenshot of my is screen and my current homescreen which I have the black magic theme applied. I hope someone else is able to figure to this out, I have done everything I could think of. Thank you ahead of ttime for your time and effort.

Ok i think i will eventually flash cm 10.1, but seeing as we don't know for sure all of what was done in this new update i think I'll wait until its reported as safe to do. Don't feel like bricking my kindle, specially because i don't have the means to order a factory cable right now if things go really bad.
