The best is , to create under "Pictures" on the sd Card two folders - Background JPG and Background PNG. For notification you need a PNG, for app drawer a jpg. They will later appear in the menu, if you use the tweak. Otherwise it´s too strange to differ between the pics, if you wanna use the same pic for notifications and app drawer. The effect on app drawer you see after you restarted your device.

Followed everything, but my app drawer is black and the jpg picture I chose didn't appear at all. Am I missing anything else?

Oh right forgot a little thing After applying in the right upper corner of the Pkmn tweaks appears a Boot sign tap it and the Phone does a soft reboot after that it should have worked

Will add this to the guide soon

I did that too, it's just that button on the top right-hand corner. In fact for the pulldown notification, using png format, my background is totally transparent showing my main screen wallpaper only. Anything else, please?

That's strange, cause for me it works well

Try to change the picture to .png perhaps this will work

It still is the same, Mate. I actually realized these background things never worked for me under PKMN tweaks since. I even created separate Background JPG & PNG folders under Pictures of my SD card.

Even with png or jpg, my app drawer background is still black.

Can you check if you got a file in data/system called background_appdrawer.jpg

Also the size of your picture is important. If it´s much over 720x1280 i had a black backgound too. Resize the private pictures to this format and there will be no problem, i think.

I agree with you, because i tried the stock wallpapers that came with the rom it didn't work, kept being black, then i downloaded from zedge and then it worked, so it is all about the size of the wallpaper being used

Yes, Jan, the file exists in the folder directory. It was finally due to the image size that was way too big and had to resize it down to 720X1280. Voila, it worked! Cheers!

Cheers Mate! You are absolutely correct; it works now with the resizing down to 720X1280. Thanks again (I'm limited to 8 thanks for the day, sorry).
