Hello Mi Fans,
I hope everyone is doing good. Today I'm going to share some serious problems with wallpaper - Yes a Wallpaper could do harm your device.
Simply setting an image as wallpaper on your phone could cause it to crash and become unable to boot. The issue was reported by well-known leaker Universe Ice on Twitter and confirmed by dozens of other users.
Android Authority tested it themselves. First, on his daily driver, the Mate 20 Pro, which doesn’t appear to be affected. He was able to replicate the issue on a Google Pixel 2. After setting the image as a wallpaper, the phone immediately crashed. It attempted to reboot, but the screen would constantly turn on and off, making it impossible to pass the security screen. For security reasons, we couldn't post the full-size photo here.
Restarting the device in safe mode (by holding down the volume button during boot-up) did not fix the issue. All need to reset the device by the sack of Personal data.
Wallpaper crash explained:
Davide Bianco, one of the lead developers of the POSP custom ROM project, explained to Android Authority About This image. I quoting the whole message. For reference, here is the method definition.
The main issue right here is that SystemUI only handles sRGB images for the wallpaper and doesn’t have any check against non-sRGB wallpapers. This can lead to a particular crash in the ImageProcessHelper class, as a variable used to access an array goes over the array bounds.
So, Don't do it on your phone or don't do prank it with your friends. The good news is it has been already posted as a bug.
