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 192.168.x.xxx (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 com.google.android.leanbacklauncher
  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:

You don't have to reinstall the LeanbackLauncher.apk.
Only replace it in /system/priv-app/LeanbackLauncher/ and then in Application settings clean data (app order will be reset) to see the wallpaper updated.

Would you be willing to make me a new signed apk with a image of my choice? I run a mac and signing apks isn't possible.

It's connected to our server. We can change the wallpaper from here. The plan was to set new wallpaper every week but we're too lazy😂
