Change the lockscreen image in Marshmallow

PostPosted by Bambino » Sun Apr 17, 2016 10:16 am

I've searched and searched, and cannot find a solution. Some of you know I have a new phone. Elephone P9000. It's running Android 6.0 out of the box, and doesn't seem to have any manufacturer garbage. I'm using Nova Launcher. I'm getting up to speed with most of the phone, but what I can't seem to do is change the lockscreen wallpaper. Is there a way to do this without rooting the phone? I was able to do it on my Nexus 5 with no problem, but this phone doesn't want to cooperate. Only thing that's bothering me at the moment. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Lock and home screen images are linked so you can't change one without the other.
As you are using Nova you can change them in Nova settings or hit Menu >Wallpapers from the homescreen.

Ah, but there's the rub. My lockscreen wallpaper is different from my homescreen. I have the wallpaper I want on my homescreen, but my lockscreen wallpaper is one of the system's wallpapers, and I can't seem to change that. Would I be able to if I used the Google Now launcher?

I've never used Google now for more than a min so no idea.
Have you tried going back to stock launcher to see if you can change it then?

Sorted. Thanks to MI5 and Cleoriff. Stock launcher worked, and Cleoriff's link was an enormous help. :legend

The link is actually for an older version of the phone, but it worked for mine.

Google was Cleoriff's friend. She found the link. I had been looking for days and never found anything.
