Changing atvX launcher wallpaper

Post by Nayam » Sun Dec 23, 2018 4:14 pm

It's easy!
Just decompile leanback launcher apk in /system/app with APK Easy Tool

Then, go to decompiled folder, then res folder and replace the 3, bg_default.png files with a 1080x1920 wallpaper of the same name.
Then you need to select "Sign APK" option in the tool and hit compile.

If everything goes well, you'll see a new wallpaper after replacing the original apk.

You have to reinstall the LeanbackLauncher.apk for the new wallpaper to take effect.

Once you have recompiled and signed the LeanbackLauncher.apk, open a command prompt, change to the folder with your adb files and type the following commands:
  1. adb connect (use the IP address of your box : Settings -> About -> Status)
    If you get an 'unable to connect' error:
    1. Make sure your PC is on the same network as your ATVXperience box
    2. Make sure USB debugging is turned on in your Developer Settings
  2. adb shell mount -o rw,remount /system
  3. adb push LeanbackLauncher.apk /system/priv-app/LeanbackLauncher/LeanbackLauncher.apk
  4. adb shell pm clear
  5. adb reboot
  6. Press Ctrl-C
  7. adb disconnect
I have repackaged LeanbackLauncher.apk with different colour wallpapers (and windows adb files). You can download them from:!OPokAALI!ZMKeuQ1is9dJ0IoKCoPyvg
