MIUI comes up with a set of wallpapers that are live, which we know it as Super Wallpapers. These wallpapers are specific to MIUI ROMs and under normal circumstances cannot be used in unsupported devices or ROMs. However, we also know “humanity” always finds a way. Thanks to linuxct from XDA, it is now possible to use these amazing wallpapers on all devices.
Features included with these wallpapers:
- Ported straight from MIUI 12. All features available in the original MIUI 12 APKs, with the exception of AOD, are available as well in these.
- Adapted to work on AOSP-based ROMs. Thanks to some custom code I wrote, the unlock effects now work on any Android 8.0+ device.
- Offers a wide variety of wallpapers to choose from. You can choose from astonishing green sceneries like the ones present in the Forest wallpaper, or submerge yourself in the red abyss of Mars, stopping by North Pole’s cold Glaciers. (NEW!) And now with the addition of Saturn, you can check two new beautiful renders of it, one showing its rings in horizontal and the other showing them in vertical.
- NEW! Code reworked from the ground-up. With proper help of a VCS tool, all code is now shared among all APKs of each version, making it easier for future updates, and who knows what more surprises to come…)
