Custom picture for lockscreen

2014-11-16, 6:58 AM

So I found out how to change locksreen background on my Yoga Tab 2, but I can't figure out how to put my own picture there, there are only about 7-8 Lenovo predfined, including the original splashing color. I tried to putting my own in the same folder through file browser, but when setting lockscreen wallpaper it just doesn't show, otherwise they are in the Lock Screen folder. What do I do?

Thank you

Solved! See the solution

1. It is not possible to use your own pictures
However you can try downloading lockscreen apps in the Google Play store.
https://play.google.com/store/search?q=lock%20screen&c=apps

 

2. You can choose between several lockscreen wallpapers from Lenovo. To change these go to Settings > Display > Wallpapers

Hi !

Try the description from NapoleonSissy at this thread.

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Idea-Android-based-Tablets/how-change-lockscreen-background/td-p/1639950

That works, but only with the Lenovo lockscreens. You can't choose own pictures.

Under "setting-display-wallpaper" it's not possible to change the lockscreen.

 

You have to use the three liitle dots in the right corner of the homescreen and choose the second entry.

Well, it actually IS possible. If you open you tablet folders in computer or total commander directly in the tablet, there is a folder named .lelauncher and in it there is subfolder named wallpaper. If you just copy/paste your image in there, it will appear with the pre-defined Lenovo ones and you CAN put it as your lockscreen wallpaper.

Just put your image in /storage/emulated/0/.lelauncher/wallpaper . That's it.

If you don't want to have to use computer every time you want to change it, just download Total Commander from Play Store. Lenovo File Browser doesn't give you access to this folder, but Total Commander does.

I can't believe how difficult this is. I have done it using total commander as suggested but it's not straightforward there either. Tip - create a bookmark and add it to the home screen.  Changing the lock screen image must surely be the first thing people want to do isn't it? I also had to revert to the lenovo launcher to do it.  I read another solution using the stock gallery app but that didn't work for me.

I've owned numerous Android devices (both tablets and phones), and I've never felt the need to change the lock screen image.  In fact, it never even occurred to me until a saw a couple threads about it here.  To each his own I guess.

There is an easier way, when viewing the photo yoi want to use as the wallpaper for lock & home screens, set the picture as wall paper.

That is how I changed it.
