After being featured on the XDA-Developers.com portal, today I bring you an update to my well known collection of Super Wallpapers, ported straight from MIUI 12.

Features included with these wallpapers:
  • Ported straight from MIUI 12. All features available in the original MIUI 12 APKs, with the exception of AOD, are available as well in these.
  • Adapted to work on AOSP-based ROMs. Thanks to some custom code I wrote, the unlock effects now work on any Android 8.0+ device.
  • Offers a wide variety of wallpapers to choose from. You can choose from astonishing green sceneries like the ones present in the Forest wallpaper, or submerge yourself in the red abyss of Mars, stopping by North Pole's cold Glaciers. (NEW!) And now with the addition of Saturn, you can check two new beautiful renders of it, one showing its rings in horizontal and the other showing them in vertical.
  • NEW! Code reworked from the ground-up. With proper help of a VCS tool, all code is now shared among all APKs of each version, making it easier for future updates, and who knows what more surprises to come... ;)
Known limitations we have in mind so far:
  • AOD wallpapers won't work nor apply on any device, no matter it being Xiaomi or any other brand. This is due to a restriction with these being signed with my own key instead of your device's OEM platform key. If you are interested in including these in your ROM, please contact me and I will gladly assist you on re-enabling AOD features. Please, only contact me if you are a ROM developer.
Versions available:
We currently have the following options available:
  • A set of three wallpapers, named "Default", "Forest" and "Glacier" in the case of Earth.
  • A set of three wallpapers, named "Default", "Central Mountains of Hale Crater" (exclusive!) and "Evergreen Garden" (exclusive!)
  • A set of two wallpapers, named "Vertical" and "Horizontal" in the case of Saturn (exclusive!)
These options come as well in three different variants (except for the Saturn wallpapers):
  • Default, which behaves just like Xiaomi intended these wallpapers to be, following your system dark theme and your clock to go dark or bright accordingly.
  • An "Always light/bright version", which is modified in order to make these wallpapers stay bright no matter the time of the day or your current system dark theme status.
  • An "Always dark version", which is modified in order to make these wallpapers stay dark no matter the time of the day or your current system dark theme status.

This makes 9 wallpapers for each, Mars and Earth, plus 2 variants for Saturn, which makes a total of 20 live Super Wallpapers included.

Before someone says it, yes, I'm very aware the "Evergreen Garden" wallpaper in both Always Dark and Always Bright versions looks more like an Earth-ish wallpaper rather than a Mars one... But Xiaomi included it inside the Mars Unity assets, so it couldn't be helped. The only thing I did was unhiding it.

As it turns out, that was an issue on my side. The APKs for 'Evergreen Garden' Always Dark and Always Bright versions have just been updated to look the way they should! Enjoy.

---------------------------------------

As a side note, if you are currently using MIUI 11 and wish to use these wallpapers, please check the post quoted below by @balcis in order to get them fully working, including on your lockscreen!

For those who are in my situation I may have found a workaround. I opened MI themes app, and downloaded any livewallpaper and set it for home and lockscreen. After that I've opened Google wallpaper app and selected superwallpaper and it worked.

----------------------------------------

I've just published another wallpaper y'all might like. It's a port from FlymeOS' 8 Live Wallpapers, and they work on Android 5.0+.
You can check a preview of how it looks in this tweet: https://twitter.com/linuxct/status/1272953346371063814
You can download it from here.

Enjoy it!

You cleared before I raise this doubt :D
Everything works with smooth animations.
Thanks for your contribution

Edit: Mars Default Evergreen gardens & Mars Bright Evergreen gardens looks entirely different. Not talking about the the bright green or dark, the whole picture is different

Looks really cool :)

I take it I can/must install several of these at once to check out the variations?
Would it be possible to create an APK simply containing everything, or e.g. all Earth or all bright wallpapers?

[Edit]Literally one minute before I posted that you might consider using MEGA, you wrote it yourself :D[/Edit]

Thank you very much.

As others reported, AndroidFileHost can't find mirrors currently.
Maybe a folder on Mega would be a good alternative to AFH.

Thank you very much.

For now, and given the amount of posibtilies / what pieces of code had been modified, it was only possible if the APKs were completely separated. I get your point, but the fact is I modified blobs which aren't really possible to be switched in runtime... That's why.

In some other news, we made it to the XDA-Develipers.com portal again! Thank you!

Really Thanks for this. Been looking for a good live wallpaper to replace pixel wallpaper i have been using for quite sometime.

Just check why the Super Mars Evergreen Gardens on default folder (first image) is totally different with the one in the always bright folder (second image).

Can we have the always bright version similar to default (first image)?

Awesome work and they look great, but the amount of animations is way over the top. I'm using the static images but a version with only the last animation would be great, is that possible @linuxct?

I'm kinda confused, please excuse me.
How can we get bright Hale Crater, is that even possible or Xiaomi didn't include this asset?
We got it after the update, but the crater app is with Earth icon and it's called Evergreen Gardens and HaleCrater apk isnt hale crater :D
hope you get what I mean.

Great work, really appreciated. Thank you

I also get the icons to show in my launcher(OnePlus Launcher) probably appearing at other launchers. Is it possible to make them not appear by default(yes I can hide them)?

Yep, I messed up with the blobs, they have just been updated on the download folder too. Now they all look the way they should.

If I can I will release another different version with the second forest assets that I mistakenly created :p



Read my post above.

Thanks. I have redownloaded the latest. And it is now exactly same as default.

Damn dude, thank you VERY much for this! Everything looks great, especially the bright ones! Great work as always and i'm assuming, this is all the Super Wallpapers that Xiaomi made for MIUI 12? Nothing left?

I know how they look like, but a GIF of the animations would be great in the first post, so more people would see the preview-s of how they look like, you can just take them from the XDA news article probably:

    Hello, same here. First of all thanks for you work. I'm using it via Google Wallpaper app but it doesn't change lockscreen wall, only home screen. Any solution to this? Device Mi 9 lite (CC), MIUI 11 up to date.
