Haven’t rooted your Xperia? Download the Xperia Z2 live wallpaper now

Screenshot_2014-03-11-13-29-32Late last month we saw that the live wallpaper from the upcoming Sony Xperia Z2 had leaked (version 1.0.A.0.9). However the apk only really worked on rooted handsets for the majority. Well we know have a new modified apk that should work just as well on handsets that are not rooted courtesy of ra3al from XDA.

We can confirm it works fine on a non-rooted Xperia Z1. A quick tip, if you previously tried to download the live wallpaper, you’ll probably have to uninstall it first (Settings > Apps). You can download the apk from here.

    It worked with my Zperia ZL :)

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Let’s start the Kitkat rage…

    Where’s my 4.4.2 for my Z1? Grrrr.

    Just a heads-up, for the 4.3 JB update, Sony posted an upgrade notice on its blog a month before for Xperia Z1.

    It works fine on my Sony Xperia P. It would be better, if this app would also show that wave.
    Anyway, in near future I will be getting the Sony Xperia Z1 compact.

    It’s not Really a “full” widget, It’s an app that make widgets from your design so you will need the template used in this Screenshot.

    Works on my Z1 very smoothly:) the first live wallpaper I like because it does not look too animated and changes color but not too quickly!

  • Mac

    I keep getting the message there was a problem parsing the package

  • Clarence Alvarado

  • suit up !


  • Killian Khoo

    That sad to knw ~

  • ZXcorr

    Thanks for posting! It works on my Z1 Compact. The colour changes too but it needs a lot of scrolling through to see it.

  • Utpal

    Its the best live wallpaper till date, such a small footprint with simplistic animation and so many vibrant colors, works flawlessly on my ZL…

  • ea

    its running smoothly on my xperia z1.

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    No need to scroll, just keep tapping on the screen repeatedly :)

  • Robson Kanyama

    Wow it works fine on my Xperia sp, phone not rooted

  • MyLive

    Works smoothly on my M dual.. non rooted of course.. :)

  • MyLive

    Looks like there’s no ‘flow’ thing like it has to be.. Just changing colour..

    Still work very well only on xperia devices.. not insult to Sony :p

  • MyLive

    Actually its working on E dual, but you’re right.. also very slow.. much like previous cosmic flow LWP.. Uninstalled.. :(

  • suit up !


  • spatch

    Works perfectly on the Nexus 7 (2013), and on my Xperia ZL. Going to try it on the Tablet Z as well…

  • No wonder, it’s pretty terrible

  • Lags badly on XS – not for daily use if you care about smoothness

  • blitz

    Works on my sp! :)

  • SonyFan

    26 :)

  • mikewonder809

    Works smooth and amazin on my z1 non rooted colors change very nice

  • ?????? ????????????

    Works great on HTC One 4.4 with Google launcher. Thanks!

  • kenliang123

    Ooh the z2 wallpapers are cool and minimalistic. I used those s5 wallpapers for a while now, real eye popping colors on my s2 amoled display.

  • josesl16

    Is upper right corner also Zooper Widget? That SONY Xperia Z Ultra logo looks pretty awesome.

  • josesl16

    I’m sure some people still would’ve preferred the Cosmic Flow Live Wallpaper if it didn’t lag as hell.

  • Hamed Azizi

    That’s a 6*2 widget. All in one. I tried to make it like the SONY and XPERIA logos. The line under SONY is something like notification light on ZL which I liked very very much.

  • josesl16

    Oh, I see. Does the template use picture or fonts? Would you mind telling me what font did you use for the SONY Xperia Z Ultra part? And also the picture of the line?(Or did you make it with photoshop?) Thanks :D

    P.S. jealous that 6*2 doesn’t even take half the screen!

  • Hamed Azizi

    You can use any bitmap as well. SONY font is DroidSerif-Bold and XPERIA’s is DroidSansArmenian. I think you can use all system fonts. The line is a Rect with some modifications. They are all in zooper widget pro. That’s a really good widget, Very customizable.

    P.S. You can make any size of widget from 1×1 to 6×6 (or even bigger for tablets)

  • Mac

    Nice man, I have 122 but now I only play once in a while.

  • inspire

    This wallpaper is absolutely beautiful! So subtle yet stylish, unlike those super poppy wallpapers from Samsung and LG.
