Hello all,

I have been using the site for reference for the last few days whilst i have been slowly getting to grips with my Rooted Fire HD and have to say that it seems like a great little community and some extremely helpfull members.

Just a quick question regarding changing the stock wallpaper on the Go Launcher theme?

I have downladed a couple of different Wallpaper Apps from the play store. They open and allow me to browse the images, when i chose one and click on the set as wallpaper button i get a notification telling me the app has stopped working?

Any ideas what I may be doing wrong or suggestins of how I can get this to work.

Thanks

Chris

These services used below were designed to be used with Go Launcher.


Step 1: Download Live Wallpaper Picker(Dropbox) or Live Wallpaper Picker(Ubuntu One) save LiveWallpapersPicker.apk to your desktop

Step 2: Download AppWidgetPicker-1.2.3(Dropbox) or AppWidgetPicker-1.2.3(Ubuntu One) save AppWidgetPicker-1.2.3.apk to your desktop

Step 3: Using Windows Explorer, move AppWidgetPicker-1.2.3.apk and LiveWallpapersPicker.apk from your desktop to Kindle/Internal Storage/Download

Step 4: Using ES File Explorer, launch ES File Explorer. Open the ES File Explorer Settings, Choose Root Settings. Make sure you check all the options in Root Settings. Be sure to Allow the Superuser request to ES File Explorer.

Step 5: Using ES File Explorer with Superuser permissions. Move AppWidgetPicker-1.2.3.apk and LiveWallpapersPicker.apk from /sdcard/Download to /system/app

Step 6: Next long press on /system/app/LiveWallpapersPicker.apk select Permissions. Change the permissions to User: Read Write Group: Read Others: Read

Step 7: Next long press on /system/app/AppWidgetPicker-1.2.3.apk select Permissions. Change the permissions to User: Read Write Group: Read Others: Read

If you decide to use a different Wallpaper Picker, you need to use ES File Explorer or Root Explorer to Move the new Picker from /data/app to /system/app then change the Permissions to: User: Read Write Group: Read and Others: Read

So let's say you decide to download and install Wallbase HD Wallpapers, you would use Google Play Store to install the App and then:

HD Wallpapers Step 1: Download and Install the app, in this example we will use Wallbase HD Wallpapers. Pay close attention to the Wallbase HD Wallpapers logo and developer name, we will use this logo to find the Wallbase HD Wallpapers application in /data/app. We know the logo is a Gray box with a W in the middle and the developers name is Tim Clark

HD Wallpapers Step 2: After the install has completed, then use ES File Explorer or Root Explorer to navigate to /data/app, then slowly scroll down looking for the Gray Icon with the W in the middle. You will find it about 1/2 the way down and named com.citc.wallbase-1.apk

HD Wallpapers Step 3: Next long press on com.citc.wallbase-1.apk and select Move

HD Wallpapers Step 4: Move com.citc.wallbase-1.apk from /data/app to the /system/app folder

HD Wallpapers Step 5: Change the permissions of com.citc.wallbase-1.apk to match User: Read Write Group: Read and Others: Read

HD Wallpapers Step 6: Reboot the Kindle

The Wallbase HD Wallpapers will now work with Go Launcher since it is a System App.

ChrisRandall,

Be sure you install the AppWidgetPicker-1.2.3.apk and LiveWallpapersPicker.apk in /system/app regardless of the other apps. These are Dependant services and are required to allow Go Launcher to work with Live Wallpaper and Widgets.

We will watch your thread for questions just in case you get stuck.

Can't see background

Hello,
Thank you for the great instructional guide. I am however encountering an issue that I am unable to solve at this time. I have rooted my kindle fire HD 7.4.3 and installed the google play store (dependencies), and go laucnher / livewallpaperapk. My live wallpaper has been moved into the systems folder and granted the correct permissions as well.
Go launcher is able to see the wallpaper / allows me to set it, but the background remains black. I have thus far been unable to determine why the background remains black. I have followed the guides to the letter. Please let me know if you have any input regarding this issue.

Amazon disabled the ability for us to set wallpaper because the stock launcher doesn't use it and it was wasting ram. Goto this thread on page 8 and try my fix, it works on all kindles affected. I am trying to make my script safer but occasionally there are a few bricks related to low disk space, if that happens you will need a fast boot cable to restore the system partition, or if u already have twrp Installed u can just restore the backup my script makes.

Hi I installed Nova launcher on my rooted kfhd7 running 7.4.6. I ran the script to allow install of wallpapers. I did exactly what it says with the live wallpaper picker and apppicker. It allowed me chose a live wallpaper once and it is still installed but when i try to go into either the app picker or live wallpaper picker it tells me the app has stopped and i cant go into it. Any ideas? Hope somebody can help me.
I am using nova because i couldnt get go launcher or go launcher ex runnnng properly on my kfhd7

Hi, my rooted Kindle recently un-rooted after I did a factory reset to fix an issue with the sound. I have re-rooted using both KFFA and B4 Binary methods but now don't seem able to use Es Explorer to move Go Ex into my system/app folder. I have downloaded from both play store and on-line into my downloads folder but when I attempt to move, I get permission denied. I can't change permissions in the download folder and Es is set up in root mode, SU is allowing access and the SD is mounted. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
